Canelo Alvarez, Amir Khan to embark on three-city press tour

New, comments

Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan will hit the road to promote their May 7th fight, stopping in London, New York, and Los Angeles.

The media tour promoting Canelo-Khan will commence next week as both fighters will embark on a three-city tour to formally announce their upcoming PPV clash on May 7th. The two men will face-off at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and to maximize interest, attendance, and PPV buys, they'll being pushing the hard sell on both sides of the pond.

The promotional tour will kick off on Monday in London at the Park Plaza Riverbank London, where Khan should surely be the fan favorite. That presser will kick off at 12pm GMT.

On Tuesday the two will fly into NYC to hold a presser at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, with festivities to begin at 1pm EST. I'm not sure who will be most popular in New York, but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.

Finally, the last leg of the press tour will be on Wednesday in Los Angeles at the Universal CityWalk's Five Towers Stage. That presser will be held at 6pm PT, with fan arrival called for 3pm PT.
