Centennial, Colo. – February 6, 2014 – Boxing fans across the nation will have a ringside seat when Fathom Events, Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions bring the highly-anticipated 12-round bout between boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez and the relentless Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo on Saturday, March 8 at 9:00 p.m. ET / 8:00 p.m. CT / 7:00 p.m. MT / 6:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. AK / 4:00 p.m. HI. “Toe to Toe: Canelo vs. Angulo” will be broadcast live to select theaters nationwide for an action-packed fight from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas that assures redemption for just one of these elite fighters.

Tickets for “Toe to Toe: Canelo vs. Angulo” are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change). The event will be broadcast to nearly 400 select movie theaters across the country through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network.

 

 

 

”March 8 will be a huge night for boxing, and as we team up with Fathom Events once again, fight fans in movie theaters around the United States will be able to experience the entire Canelo vs. Angulo event like they never have before,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions.

 

 

 

“This will be my second fight that will be played in movie theaters and I am thrilled,” said Canelo Alvarez. “The fans know that I always look to leave them satisfied with my performance in the ring and that’s why I invite all of them to be part of a great experience by watching my fight against ‘El Perro’ Angulo on the big screen. I promise endless action from the first bell because when Mexican fighters get in the ring, fans are guaranteed a tremendous fight.”

 

 

 

“My fans know that my hands speak louder than my words,” said Alfredo Angulo. “For those who don’t know me, this cinematic experience with Canelo on March 8 will help you see why these hands always guarantee a great show. Please sit back, enjoy and get ready for a great performance.”

 

 

 

Mexican boxing superhero and pride of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, Canelo Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KO’s) returns to the ring hungrier than ever after a hard-fought loss to the pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather in September 2013. His bout against Mayweather marked the highest grossing pay-per-view event in history and made him a hero to thousands of boxing fans all around the world. Now, six months later, the 23-year-old is ready to make his highly anticipated ring return and prove to the world that he really does belong amongst the elite fighters of his generation.

 

 

 

Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo (22-3, 18 KO’s) from Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico is a fan-favorite in the boxing world. The 31-year-old star embodies the guts and glory of a true Mexican warrior and has every intention of demonstrating this against the younger Canelo. Like Canelo, Angulo is also coming off of a controversial loss after suffering an eye injury during the ninth round of an exciting showdown against top Super Welterweight Erislandy Lara in June 2013. A win against Canelo would cement Angulo’s status as one of boxing’s most dangerous fighters and catapult him to the top of the list of world title contenders.  

 

 

 

“Six months ago, movie theaters were packed with boxing fans eager to watch the match-up between the reigning boxing kings of the U.S. and Mexico,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of Fathom Events. “We are thrilled to welcome Canelo back to another amazing fight as he and Angulo go ‘toe to toe’ for a night that will surely leave you on the edge of your seat.”
