The Canelo Alvarez vs. Amir Khan May 7th Pay-Per-View is over, and it delivered one of the years most intriguing big man versus little man match ups that ended with a bang.
Canelo defended his WBC middleweight belt against the scrappy British boxer at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The event was packed with adoring fans mainly rooting for Canelo but a sizable amount for Khan were in attendance.
The bout was promoted by Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions, and broadcast by HBO in the United States.
Canelo-Khan brought the drama, what was initially seen as a mismatch had people believing early that Khan might pull off the perfect fight, the speed of Khan was befuddling Canelo for a few rounds, but Canelo adjusted to the speed in the sixth round and caught Khan right on the chin. It was a highlight real KO for the ages and it was the ending that boxing experts pretty much predicted would happen once Canelo lands flush on the jaw of Khan.
HBO may rebroadcast the Canelo vs. Khan fight next week on HBO, check your local listings for replay times and dates or HBO.com/Boxing for more information on upcoming boxing events.
