The fighters will officially arrive on the scene for Saturday’s DAZN card.
Today at 2:00 pm ET streaming live on DAZN and also on Facebook, a bunch of fighters will get out of cars, walk around a bit, pose, and probably give a few brief comments in an event called the “Grand Arrivals” in Las Vegas, ahead of Saturday night’s Canelo-Jacobs card, which will also stream live on DAZN.
Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KO) and Jacobs (35-2, 29 KO) are the main event on Saturday night, and will arrive last. According to the most recent update we received, here’s the schedule for this afternoon:
- 2:30 pm ET: John Ryder and Bilal Akkawy
- 2:45 pm ET: Lamont Roach Jr and Jonathan Oquendo
- 3:00 pm ET: Joseph Diaz Jr and Sadam Ali (their opponents Freddy Fonseca and Anthony Young are apparently not important to arrive in a grand fashion)
- 3:15 pm ET: Vergil Ortiz Jr and Mauricio Herrera
- 3:30 pm ET: Daniel Jacobs
- 4:00 pm ET: Canelo Alvarez
What I’m telling you is that I’m going to spend a little over two hours of my time this afternoon watching the dumbest event of fight week, so you should join me. Well, “should” is a strong word, but let’s see what color t-shirts people are wearing, and if they have hats emblazoned with the logo of their own promotional company yet.
