Canelo Alvarez and Austin Trout will hit the Lone Star State on Wednesday and Thursday for a three-city promotional tour, with events in San Antonio, Houston, and McAllen all open to the public.
Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KO) and Trout (26-0, 14 KO) will meet on April 20 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, live on Showtime, in a fight that will really determine the best true junior middleweight in the world, with Floyd Mayweather moving back down to welterweight for his May 4 fight with Robert Guerrero.
Their fight should attract a lot of viewers both at the gate and on TV, and right now is arguably the most interesting fight on the boxing schedule.
