Report: Jerry Looking to Bring Golovkin-Alvarez to AT&T Stadium

If a deal is made Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez will fight on September 17

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has made it known that he’s a boxing fan, particularly in instances when boxing can make him a whole mess of cash, and this love of boxing and money could soon bring a super-fight of sorts to North Texas.

According to the promoter of Kazakh middleweight champ Gennady Golovkin, Jones has been trying to bring the fight between Triple G and Canelo Alvarez to AT&T Stadium on September 17.

“Jerry Jones has watched GGG's last few fights and he expressed a big interest in having the fight in Dallas at his stadium,” Tom Loeffler told TMZ.  "GGG will fight anywhere, but he's aware of Jerry Jones and the atmosphere in his stadium. Whenever Jerry Jones gets involved, he takes promotion to a new level."

The other venues in the running to host the even are the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and Madison Square Garden in New York.
