NAC discloses attendance and gate for Canelo-Jacobs

May 13, 2019

The Nevada Athletic Commission has released the attendance and gate for the May 4th fight between Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The event was the sixth largest boxing event at the T-Mobile Arena with the top 5 involving Canelo.  The other event, Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor had the largest gate with $55,414,865.79, drawing 13,094.

The other events included:

Canelo-GGG I, 9/16/17 – 17,318 for a gate of $27,059,850

Canelo-GGG II, 9/15/18 – 13,732 for a gate of $24,473,500

Mayweather-Canelo, 9/14/13 – 16,146 for a gate of $20,003,150

Canelo-Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr, 5/16/17 – 17,143 for a gate of $10,631,850

Canelo-Daniel Jacobs, 5/04/19 – 15,730 for a gate of $8,685,750

Also, of note, there were 1,388 comps for the event.

Payout Perspective:

While it might be the lowest gate of the Canelo events listed above, Canelo-Jacobs did draw more than the second GGG fight. Admittedly, the other fights on this list had more heat and drawing power.  Not that Daniel Jacobs was not a worthy opponent for Canelo, but the others on this list already had a name many casual fans were aware of prior to the fight.  JCC, Jr. rode his family lineage for his popularity and therefore the big attendance and gate for that fight.

Got something to say?
