Boxing fans to make the call!


Fans at MGM Grand Garden Arena and Watching at Home on SHOWTIME® Can Text to Vote for the Winner Immediately After Canelo Alvarez Meets Josesito Lopez, Jhonny Gonzalez Takes On Daniel Ponce De Leon, Marcos Maidana Meets Jesus Soto Karass and Leo Santa Cruz Faces Eric Morel For Coveted Bonus This Saturday from the

MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and Live on SHOWTIME


Las Vegas (September, 12) - "Knockout Kings," this Saturday's Mexican Independence Day weekend quadruple-header headlined by WBC Super Welterweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez facing upset-driven Josesito Lopez, just got more interesting with the addition of a $100,000 bonus being awarded to the fighter who registers the best knockout of the night. 


Fans will have the opportunity to text to vote for their choice immediately following the end of the Canelo vs. Lopez bout.  The winner will be announced in the ring and live during the telecast on SHOWTIME® from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.


The eight fighters featured on the telecast have a combined 206 knockouts.


"These four fights all have the ingredients to end in a spectacular fashion," said President of Golden Boy Promotions Oscar De La Hoya.  "Knockout Kings is the perfect title for this fight card because you have current world champions, former world champions and aspiring world champions all striving for a win this Saturday night.  All the fighters are known for their power and none can be counted out or overlooked.  This is a unique way to engage the fans watching around the country.  I am hoping to see four knockouts so that the decision is that much tougher and the winner is that much more deserving of the prize."




Following the conclusion of the main event, fans in the arena and at home will have five minutes to vote for the "Knockout of the Night" by texting 74669 from their mobile devices.  If there are no knockouts, there will no winner and if there is one knockout, that fighter is the automatic winner of the $100,000 prize.  Should there be more than one knockout, the votes will be tallied in those five allotted minutes to vote and the $100,000 winner will be announced in the ring prior to the conclusion of the SHOWTIME telecast.
