@Bearcat you do realize that the Alamo actually belonged to Mexico right? You might want to open a history book.Posted March 17, 2013
Is this a picture of Jeff Dunham and his green Chilli Pepper Puppet Cha Cha, LMAO
He’s doing pretty good in the states. He’s sponsored by Under AarmourPosted March 16, 2013
This is the most anticipated fight for the fans since Cotto Trout,to where Trout was awarded very close rounds that appeared to be a trouncing which it was not .Trout had to work hard for that win,that appeared much closer than the score.Posted March 16, 2013
Dan just go home. Look at the Alvarez vs. Josesito ticket sales at MGM FREAKIN’ GRAND the same night as CHAVEZ JR. vs. MARTINEZ!!! Not to mention the viewer count…Posted March 16, 2013
CANELO…..The only fighter that would hurt Floyd Mayweather seriously….Posted March 16, 2013
This has got to be the stupidest statement made.
Sadly, the same Trout-Canelo fight would likely draw only 5,000 fans if it were staged in Las Vegas, Nevada,
Canelo already fought in Las Vegas against Josecito Lopez and sold out the MGM Grand.
The Alvarez-Lopez fight at the MGM Grand sold 14,000 tickets with zero unsold. There were 1,659 complimentary tickets handed out. The live paid gate was $1.618 million gate.
How would the Canelo vs Trout boxing match only draw 5,000 people if it is a much bigger event then the previous Canelo vs Josecito Lopez boxing match?
This guy needs to be banned from writing because he makes no sense at all. He has no clue of what he is talking about. Also Canelo fight on a night where another Mexican star Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was fighting at the Thomas Mack Center and he sold out the arena with 19,000 people with a little help from Sergio Martinez.Posted March 16, 2013
@BOXTRADAMUS Even if they resize the stadium your premium seats won’t be affected. What they will do is open up more seats in the back to adjust for more fans to come in. If they sell 30,000 tickets before April 1rst then they will probably open up another 5,000 to 10,000 seats to allow more people to buy tickets.
Payday is usually the first of the month for people so they will probably see how many tickets they sell on the first to determine how many more seats they will sell. Canelo probably will get 5,000 people from Mexico to come up and see the event if not more so they may need to account for that as well. 15,000 thousand tickets already sold in less than 3 days is very good and is on pace for 30,000 people.Posted March 16, 2013
What the heck?
Where are the tickets for $10? The cheapest I found were $33 on ticket master. I live in Houston and plan on going. This guy makes it seem like all the tickets are going for $10 which Is not true.

Maximum respect to canelo you go boeyPosted March 16, 2013
its okay to bash Alvarez it will only bring him more popularity, so for that i like these articlesPosted March 16, 2013
Didn’t ambroise say they wouldn’t sell 20k seats. Now that he sees its gonna sell out he’s blaming the ticket prices. I always thought you were a retard but you really showed your ass on this one. Looks like you are running out of crap to say.lol what a Dumb@$$!!!!!Posted March 15, 2013
Word of caution to everybody that reads bearcats comments—-
RESIST N SMOKE: I AGREE 100%Posted March 15, 2013
Dan the f@gPosted March 15, 2013
Canelo and golden boy are geniuses. Sell this fight practically for free, give Canelo much more exposre yhan ever b4. Next time he fights will be even bigger. This the rise of Canelo and in May, the start of the fall of Mayweather as #1 ppv seller. Mayweather can’t sell ppv with out another big name.Posted March 15, 2013
Wow I thought I heard the dumbest things Ambrose has said but this takes the cake. Now he is completely ignoring history. Canelo fighting Lopez and selling out the house the same night as another huge boxing ppv apparently never happened.Posted March 15, 2013

Lmao only 5k Ambrose? When Canelo josesito sold out and not to mention there was a bigger fight going on 2 blocks away somehow someway u always find a pathetic excuse to talk about Canelo u are garbage Ambrosio funny how u said golden boy will never throw Canelo with trout now that it’s happening u seem to be running out of articles same damn story Everytime someone get this bum outta here this is boxingnews not hateoncanelo24/7.com I’m sure u get paid chump change to write articles and get views I know the story and of course who do u write on that gets more attention? CANELO OF COURSE. SO COME TO THINK OF IT A MEXICAN IS PAYING YOUPosted March 15, 2013
Why would u complain about 10$ tix prices!!!! We need more fighters like Canelo cause its the low income people who benefit…duh!!Posted March 15, 2013
Canelo no doubt will smash trout and all the haters foshoPosted March 15, 2013
resist n smoke
Of course dan forgot to mention in his first article that only 1/3 if not less will be sold for $10 dollars. the majority of the fans that will be there payed over $10. haters just cant believe that a 22 yr old Mexican kid is the next cash cow in boxing.
broner and floyd are chumps riding off the Mexican name. everyone saying canelo was stupid fot pulling out of the may 4th card is about to get proven wrong.
The casual boxing fan does not pay to see floyd fight. they pay to see him lose to their favorite fighter or to watch the stacked under cards. only highly paid celebrities show up to watch Floyd because to them its like attending a big event. it dosent say much for floyd because those same celebrities show up to watch pacquiao.
lets face it its floyds “0″ that makes him attractive. not his fightibg style .
on the contrary the casual fan is paying to see Canelo who has called anyone who is anyone. he is exciting and hes taking on the fights everyone said he would avoid l.Posted March 15, 2013
Great people can go see Canelo fight for the cost of a dime bag of weed. Alvarez is a star…. BwahahahahaPosted March 15, 2013
Alvarez vs. Lopez sold out the MGM and had over 1.4 million viewers tuned in the same night that Martinez fought Chavez Jr. down the street. The writer seems to have missed this fact. Also, this is great for the sport of Boxing period and it escapes me why the writer (supposed to be a fan of the sport) is not more excited about the potential sell out. I think that moving the event to the Alamodome was a great move. Alvarez will attract Mexican boxing fans and Trout, who is originally from El Paso, will attract his base from that region of Texas and New Mexico where he now lives. It is going to be a great night of boxing in the state of Texas.Posted March 15, 2013
Once again, if Floyd wasn’t playing “duck” he would of made much more $, ppv is where its at! Around the country! May $??? Should be Floyd “duck” mayPosted March 15, 2013
no doubt the huge ticket sales are fueled in part by the low cost 10$ ticket’s and there is the true storyPosted March 15, 2013
@boxtradamus… With trout u say besides cotto he hasn’t faced anyone. Well he faced cotto alvarez literally has faced no one especially in his devision. Doo just took on a 140 pounder. This is his first real fight. Reality is reality.Posted March 15, 2013
Canelo officaially took over boxing. Those Mexicans and white Americans love him and the Mexican Americans obcoursePosted March 15, 2013
You’re right Ian.
they better not resize the stadium , I Payed $245 to be up front !!!!! DAN AMBROSE, you keep saying that canelo is unproven but look a trout as well, besided cotto, trout has been fighting a bunch of bums as well, guys that are 12/6 or 24/8 , Canelo has called out Paul williams, victor ortiz and kirkland, is it his fault that things fell through?Posted March 15, 2013
I work for the alamodome and was at the press conference and the whole stadium is open and not adjusted to 30,000 and canelo will sell out the dome and beat Chavez record.Posted March 15, 2013
