BOXING

Eddie Hearn, promoter of the WBO middleweight champion (up to 76.2 kg), Briton Billy Joe Saunders (30-0-0, 14 KO), announced that the venue for his planned fight with the leader of the “pound-for-pound” rating, Mexican Saul Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KO) will be the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.

It is there that the meeting between Alvarez and Turkish challenger Avni Yildirim (21-2-0, 12 KO) on February 27 will take place.

“It’s nice to see Canelo active, especially at a time like this. I think we should expect statements from him only after the fight with Yildirim, but promote him at the home stadium of the Miami Dolphins [профессиональный футбольный клуб] – a special matter. We’re hoping for 15,000 people, ”Hearn said.
