Errol Spence Jnr 'wants middleweight mega-fight with Canelo Alvarez' in Dallas


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.

‘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.’
