There are rumors that there could be near 70,000 tickets sold for Canelo Saunders. If that is true, then it would be the biggest attendance for a boxing event in the United States since? Louis vs Schmeling 2 in 1938? According to boxrec, the Gross attendance was listed at 72,000, and the Paid attendance was 66,227. The next closest since then appears to be 63,352 for Ali Spinks 2 at the Superdome. In terms of paid attendance, this could surpass even Louis Schmeling 2. Then you would have to go back all the way to 1927 for Dempsey Tunney 2 at Soldier Field with an attendance of 104,943. So this appears to have a chance to have the largest paid attendance to see a boxing match in the United States in nearly 95 years.
