Canelo Alvarezs return to the junior middleweight division against Liam Smith last month generated close to 300,000 pay-per-view buys, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya told ESPN.com.?Headlining an HBO PPV card on Mexican Independence Day weekend at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas, on Sept. 17, Mexicos Alvarez scored a ninth-round knockout of Englands Smith to win another junior middleweight world title after having vacated his middleweight title.At 300,000 buys, the fight grossed approximately $20 million in domestic PPV revenue, although roughly half goes to the cable and satellite operators.Were going to wind up doing close to 300,000 homes, which is great when you combine that with almost 52,000 fans we had in the crowd, De La Hoya said. Were very happy, extremely happy with the numbers.However, the total was a drop of about half of what the 26-year-old Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) generated in his previous fight, a crushing sixth-round knockout of Amir Khan in defense of the middleweight title on May 5 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and about one-third of the 900,000-plus buys he generated for a unanimous decision win against Miguel Cotto last November to win the middleweight world title at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.However, while Cotto is one of boxings biggest stars and Khan is a very prominent name with wide recognition among American boxing fans, Smith was fighting in the United States for the first time, never had previously been on American television, was a gargantuan underdog and essentially was unknown.Obviously, nobody had ever heard of Liam Smith, and when you have to try and sell a pay-per-view fight with somebody that nobody has ever heard of, you have a tough job ahead of you, De La Hoya said. We were able to attract the fans who love boxing, and they were treated to a special fight. When it was all said and done it was a terrific fight, a lot of action.While some will view the figures as a sign perhaps of diminishing star power for Alvarez, who has been heavily criticized for avoiding a megafight with unified middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin -- a bout De La Hoya said they hope to make for September 2017 -- De La Hoya said he did not put any stock in that.De La Hoya, a Hall of Famer and one of the biggest pay-per-view stars in boxing history during his 1992 to 2008 fighting career, pointed out that even as popular as he was, when he faced a few lesser or unknown opponents along the way, sometimes his PPV totals suffered.The fight with Smith was Alvarezs sixth as a pay-per-view headliner. In addition to Smith, Khan and Cotto, he also faced Floyd Mayweather in a 2013 loss that sold 2.2 million pay-per-views, third all time, and set the PPV revenue record of $150 million until it was broken last year by Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao.Alvarez also headlined against Erislandy Lara and Alfredo Angulo in 2014, each of which generated more than 300,000 buys.Alvarez, who plans to move up to the middleweight division limit of 160 pounds after fighting his previous middleweight bouts at a catch weight of 155 pounds, is out until at least early 2017 because he suffered an avulsion fracture of his right thumb early in the Smith fight.If his thumb heals on schedule, De La Hoya said Alvarez could fight in the first quarter of next year and then plans to fight again in May, with a potential fight against Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs) in September.Im sure when Canelo decides to fight at 160 next year there will be plenty of name fighters and opponents who will bring excitement and great fights and the fans will acknowledge that and, once again, he will do even bigger pay-per-view numbers, De La Hoya said.

Alan Page Jersey . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg.The Premier League returns to action this weekend after the international break with a number of enticing fixtures in store, including Arsenals visit to Manchester United. That massive encounter kicks off the action on Saturday lunch time, live on Sky Sports 1 HD, and the following day in-form Chelsea take on Middlesbrough at the Riverside on Super Sunday.The weekend comes to a conclusion when West Bromwich Albion take on Burnley at the Hawthorns on Monday Night Football. Its set to be another busy three days of top-flight football so we look at the pressing questions ahead of those 10 matches…Will Wenger finally get one over on Mourinho? (Man Utd v Arsenal - Saturday, 12.30pm)Arsene Wenger takes his Arsenal side to Old Trafford on Saturday having never tasted a Premier League victory over Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.The pair have met on 11 previous occasions in the Premier League, with the Portuguese having won five of those encounters, while six ended in draws.However, those were while Mourinho was in charge of Chelsea, so will a change of club have an impact on the Special Ones seemingly impregnable hold over the Frenchman? Man Utd vs Arsenal November 19, 2016, 11:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Will the Blues be breached at the Riverside? (Middlesbrough v Chelsea - Sunday, 4pm)Chelsea make the long journey to the north east for their Super Sunday clash with Middlesbrough in rude health.The Blues are second in the table, just a point behind leaders Liverpool, and are in the best form of any Premier League team over the last five games, a run that has coincided with a switch to a back three.Antonio Contes side have won all of those matches, without conceding, and if they maintain that trend at the Riverside this weekend, it will be the 10th time a Premier League club has won six or more games in a row without shipping a goal. Mboro vs Chelsea November 20, 2016, 3:30pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Will the Clarets cure their travel sickness? (West Bromwich Albion v Burnley - Monday, 8pm)Burnley have been in good form at home in the Premier League so far this season, accruing 13 points from a possible 21 at Turf Moor. However, the Clarets have been far less impressive on the road, collecting just a solitary point from their four away games, although that did come after a heroic goalless draw at Manchester United.If the newly-promoted team are to defy the odds and remain in the top flight this campaign, though, then they must start being harder to beat on their travels, starting at the Hawthorns on Monday Night Football. W Brom vs Burnley November 21, 2016, 7:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Will the Eagles end their latest losing run? (Crystal Palace v Man City - Saturday, 3pm)Alan Pardew is a manager that tends to go on runs, whether they be losing or winning streaks, and the Crystal Palace boss heads into Saturdays game with Manchester City on another.Thhe Eagles have slipped to 16th in the table having lost their last four Premier League games in a row, the third time already this has happened since Pardew took over the club in January 2015.ddddddddddddSo the former Newcastle boss will be desperate to kick off a run of the positive nature when City come to the capital this weekend.Will Bradley finally break his Swans duck? (Everton v Swansea City - Saturday, 3pm)Bob Bradley replaced Francesco Guidolin as Swansea City manager on October 3, but the American is yet to register a victory in any of his first four league games at the club.Bradley did manage a goalless draw at home to Watford in his second game at the helm, but the other three matches ended in defeat, leaving the Swans six points from safety in the relegation zone.And Bradley takes his struggling team to Everton on Saturday trying to avoid becoming the first Swansea boss not to win any of his first five Premier League contests in charge. Will the Potters turnaround in form continue? (Stoke City v Bournemouth - Saturday, 3pm)Stoke City endured yet another one of their underwhelming starts to the season, failing to win any of their opening seven league games to sit second from bottom of the table on just three points.However, since drawing at Manchester United on October 2, the Potters have earned 11 points, with only Chelsea (15) and Liverpool (13) gaining more than them in that time.Much of that recent change in fortunes is based around a return to winning ways at the Britannia, with Mark Hughes side beating Sunderland and Swansea at home last month.And the Welshman will be targeting three Premier League home victories in a row for the first time since April 2014 when Bournemouth come to the Potteries on Saturday afternoon.Will the Reds maintain their impressive start on the South Coast? (Southampton v Liverpool - Saturday, 3pm)Liverpool travel to Southampton on Saturday afternoon top of the table having made their best start to a Premier League season after 11 games (also 26 points) since the 2008/09 campaign.In fact, only once before in the Premier League era have the Reds collected more points at this stage of the season, and that was 14 years ago when Gerard Houlliers side had 27 points.However, in neither of those campaigns did the club go on to win that elusive Premier League title, so Jurgen Klopp will be keen for his players to carry on their recent good form at St Marys.Will the real Foxes stand up? (Watford v Leicester City - Saturday, 3pm)Leicester City take on Watford on Saturday with just 12 points to their name, compared to the 22 they had at the same stage on their way to the title last season.That represents the biggest points differential between this campaign and last by any team, and with Claudio Ranieris side currently only two points clear of the relegation zone, the Italian could really do with last seasons Foxes turning up at Vicarage Road this weekend.Will Defoe bring up his 150 not out? (Sunderland v Hull City - Saturday, 3pm)Sunderland will once again be looking to striker Jermain Defoe to fire them to victory against fellow strugglers Hull City at the Stadium of Light this weekend.Defoe scored the winner as the Black Cats came from behind to win 2-1 at Bournemouth last time out, the clubs first league win of the season.That strike, from the penalty spot, was the 34-year-olds 149th of his top-flight career, meaning another against the Tigers on Saturday will see the former England international become only the eighth player to reach the 150-goal mark in Premier League history.Will Spurs get back to winning ways? (Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham United - Saturday, 5.30pm)Tottenham head into Saturday evenings London derby with West Ham on the back of their longest winless run in all competitions (D5 L2) since May 2004, when they went eight without a victory.Oddly, though, Spurs are also the only unbeaten side left in the Premier League this season (W5 D6 L0), so it is not all bad news for Mauricio Pochettino and his team.But with Tottenham now four points adrift of the Champions League places, they need to get back to winning ways when the struggling Hammers visit White Hart Lane this weekend.
