Mexican boxing superhero and pride of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, Canelo Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KO’s) returns to the ring hungrier than ever after a hard-fought loss to the pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather in September 2013. His bout against Mayweather marked the highest grossing pay-per-view event in history and made him a hero to thousands of boxing fans all around the world. Now, six months later, the 23-year-old is ready to make his highly anticipated ring return and prove to the world that he really does belong amongst the elite fighters of his generation.

Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo (22-3, 18 KO’s) from Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico is a fan-favorite in the boxing world. The 31-year-old star embodies the guts and glory of a true Mexican warrior and has every intention of demonstrating this against the younger Canelo. Like Canelo, Angulo is also coming off of a controversial loss after suffering an eye injury during the ninth round of an exciting showdown against top Super Welterweight Erislandy Lara in June 2013. A win against Canelo would cement Angulo’s status as one of boxing’s most dangerous fighters and catapult him to the top of the list of world title contenders.

“Six months ago, movie theaters were packed with boxing fans eager to watch the match-up between the reigning boxing kings of the U.S. and Mexico,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of Fathom Events. “We are thrilled to welcome Canelo back to another amazing fight as he and Angulo go ‘toe to toe’ for a night that will surely leave you on the edge of your seat.”
