If you aren’t satisfied by the high-definition on your own television when it comes to pay-per-view boxing, NCM Fathom Events and Showtime has just what you need: the big fight between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on the big screen. (What’s next? Blood and sweat flying from the screen in 3-D?)
Fathom and Showtime will broadcast The One: Mayweather vs. Canelo at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Denton Cinemark 14, 2725 Wind River Lane.
It will be a fight between the U.S. and Mexico when boxing star Mayweather and super welterweight world champion Alvarez lace up. Each man is defending his undefeated record in the much-hyped rumble.
Mayweather is an eight-time world champ and among the richest athletes in the ring. Alvarez started scrapping in the ring for cash at age 15. He’s 23 and a Mexican sports icon. The pair will go toe to toe at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Tickets to the theatrical broadcast cost $17 for adults, $16 for seniors and students with valid ID, and $15 for children. For tickets, visit www.cinemark.com.
