The much awaited fight between Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis may be heading towards the Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, with April 15th being targeted as the tentative fight date.
As per BoxingScene.com, Premier Boxing Champions and the surrounding partners of this company have explored the options for the locations, and apparently, the Raiders venue is the one for this.
While the stadium has never hosted a boxing event since its opening in 2020, it could hold more than 70,000 fans for this fight night. Two other places appeared in the dispute to keep the billboard. By capacity, the T-Mobile Arena and the MGM Grand Garden Arena are those that could stage the show as well.
However, tmain question lies in the number of spectators that can attend each place. The Allegiant has more than 70,000 seats, while the remaining two do not reach 30,000 (22,000 for T-Mobile Arena and 17,000 for the MGM Grand Garden Arena).
Until both boxers agree to the deal established for the main event, the site for the presentation will not be signed. Showtime ‘s Pay-Per-View is the main challenge, although the issue is on track. The two parties maintained communications related to the issue, and there was no impediment to continue.
The fight will be 12 rounds, with a weight limit set at 136 pounds. The official announcement could be made during the next week, if no unforeseen inconvenience comes forth.
Gervonta Davis has 28 wins with him, with 26 prior limit finishes. Ryan Garcia got 23 wins, 19 of them by knockout. They are undefeated, and at just the right time to fight. It could turn out to be the biggest fight in the United States this year. Davis remains one of the biggest attractions in the business, while it will be Garcia’s first time as leader of a PPV card.
