Bring it on! Errol Spence Jnr ‘targets middleweight mega-fight with Canelo Alvarez’… but American only wants bout ‘when fans return in full to Dallas Cowboys’ 80,000-seater stadium’
- Errol Spence is determined to fight in front of fans at Dallas Cowboys stadium
- The American, a native of Texas, is said to be keen to take on Canelo Alvarez
- Canelo has a flawless record in Texas, winning all three of his previous fights
- But Spence Jnr, who has a perfect 26-0 professional record, feels confident
Errol Spence Jnr has talked up a middleweight ‘mega-fight’ against Mexico’s Saul ‘Canel’ Alvarez – but only when fans can return in full to witness it.
Spence Jnr, a Texas resident, is keen to fight Alvarez at Dallas Cowboys’ 80,000-seater AT&T Stadium given the scale of the contest if an agreement was made between them.
He boasts a perfect professional record at welterweight – 26 wins and zero defeats – which is 147 pounds. A move to middleweight, where Canelo has dominated, would see Spence need to go up to 160 pounds.

Spence Jnr wants the fight and says it should be held at Dallas Cowboys’ 80,000-seat stadium
‘With Canelo, yeah, I’d definitely entertain that. That can happen, that’s a huge fight,’ Spence Jnr told the Sun.
‘That would be huge for the Cowboys’ stadium when we’re back to 100 per cent capacity.
‘That’s another mega-fight which I could have. I could have a lot of mega-fights.
‘It takes quite a few pounds to get down to 147. I wouldn’t have any problems fighting at 160.’
