    Promoter Bob Arum told BoxingScene.com on Tuesday that the Terence Crawford-Jeff Horn/Manny Pacquiao-Mike Alvarado doubleheader won’t take place at Madison Square Garden.

    The ESPN Pay-Per-View show featuring Crawford and Pacquiao, scheduled for April 14, instead is headed to one of MGM Resorts International’s properties in Las Vegas. Mandalay Bay is a popular property among those that travel for Pacquiao’s fights in Las Vegas and is the hotel where Pacquiao prefers to stay when he fights in that city, but Arum wasn’t certain Tuesday of the exact site.

    Arum had hoped to bring that card to Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, but there already are two boxing cards scheduled for April at Barclays Center in nearby Brooklyn.

    PAC man vs Alvarado is a waste of time and Crawford vs Horn is a mismatch

    Dunno why the hate on Crawford vs Horn. First fight at 147 vs a decent sized 147 pounder who just beat Pac.

    Pac vs Alvarado is sad, but might be a good KO.

    In no way shape or form is Horn a good fight or did he beat Pac.

    I like Horn/Crawford. I don't even understand Pacquiao/Alvarado, but I doubt it will be a bad watch, whether there's any competition or not.

    I don't understand how that's a bad first 147lbs fight for Crawford? Horn did really well against Pac and surprised everyone. I had Pac slightly winning but it was very close.

    Pac is a shell of himself and Crawford is going to kill him.

    As soon as this is over folks will change their tune.

    Can people not comment on fighters they know almost nothing about? Pretty please. Horn didn’t fight prime pacquiao or even close to it.

    Crawford demolishes horn and proves nothing in the process.

    Probably and once again its his FIRST fight at 147 who also has a belt. Who else can Crawford fight at 147? Haymon fighters?

    I'm sure if Pacquiao grew some balls and excepted the Crawford fight that would happen instead.

    Are you saying Haymon doesn’t have anyone worthy of the Crawford fight at 147? If so, in the words of Austin powers au contraire baby

    i don't mind crawford mowing horn down. horn holds a belt he isn't supposed to be holding, and now crawford will beat him senseless and take it. all will be right with the world.

    Assuming Crawford handles 147 well, he should smoke Horn. But given Horns size and name recognition from the Pac fight, it is good. In addition to Horn having the size, he has the style to impose his size, like he did vs Pac.

    I feel TC is bigger than Pac tho, and adjusts better than Pacman as well... so considering all that, it is a good match up.

    Not PPV worthy, but TC aint fighting Thurman or Spence first time out, and no fight really at 140 or 147 is PPV worthy

    Its still a shit fight.

    “If Pac grew some balls”. Jesus. What an ignorant comment. Pac has absolutely zero to prove and suggesting he does is completely stupid.
    Look I get the career move for making this fight. Its still not a good fight.

    Two entirely different things.

    Horn's got a belt. Makes sense to me. Crawford get's his belt and can start calling for unifications.

    It will be a horribly one sided fight, so it does kind of suck. But I don't blame TC or Top Rank for making this happen. In a round about way, the whole situation is probably preferable for Top Rank. Crawford gets Pacquiao's belt without having to fight Manny.
