What time is the Canelo fight tonight vs Golovkin? We’ve got you covered if you’re in the US or Europe. Lets take a look.
Calculating approximate ring walk times for pay per view events in boxing can be tricky at the best of times.
For example, in many popular pay per view events of the past in the sport the majority of people who buy the fights tend to leave it to the last minute.
This often forces the event organizers to push back their approximate start time for a main event.
In the recent Mayweather vs McGregor event a few weeks back for example, their online servers for the pay per view event crashed due to the amount of interest in the fight, which subsequently caused a slight delay to the start of the event.
Tonight’s administrators will be well aware of this of course and give or take, things should run fairly smoothly one suspects.
The action is in local time first off in Las Vegas (PT in the US), with the coverage of the entire event on HBO actually due to start slightly earlier than usual.
Coverage they are saying will start at 5pm PT (local time), 8pm ET, which means coverage in the UK and Ireland of the event should get underway around 2am.
The main event itself is expected to be between 3.30am and 4am Sunday morning in the UK and Ireland, which translates to approximately between 10.30pm-11pm ET and between 7.30pm-8pm local time PT in Vegas.
Get you’re popcorn ready for this one, it should be a classic:
