Oscar De La Hoya met with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Thursday to discuss the possibility of a fight between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin at AT&T Stadium later this year, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Lance Pugmire.

De La Hoya, who promotes the World Boxing Council middleweight champion Alvarez, said following the meeting that there’s a “strong possibility” the fight will take place at AT&T Stadium, though no date has been decided upon. 

“As you know, we have to build this fight up to be the next super-fight,” De La Hoya said. “And, yes, it will be the next super-fight. The difference with this one [and Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao] is there will be action, there will be knockdowns — probably a knockout — so it’s a matter of focusing all of our energies on May 7 with Amir Khan and then we’ll take it from there.”

Alvarez’s first title defense will take place May 7 against England’s Khan.
