The fight will be in Las Vegas on an all-boxing card, though a venue has not been formalized yet, according to Iole. It is currently slated to be held at MGM Grand Garden, but could yet shift to T-Mobile Arena. Further terms of the deal were unavailable, but the money involved for the fight is certain to be incredible.
