American boxing promoter Oscar De La Hoya announced today that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will attend the fight between Mexican Saúl 'Canelo' Álvarez and Muslim Amir Khan on Saturday, May 7 in Las Vegas.

The middleweight bout, scheduled for 12 rounds, will be held at the T-Mobile Arena.

"I am surprised, but I received his confirmation and is a perfect opportunity for us to show that Muslims and Mexicans can have a presence in this country in a positive way, so I'm happy," De La Hoya said.
