Keith Thurman vs. Danny Garcia now has a home. The much-anticipated welterweight showdown will take place on March 4 from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

The fighters will officially announce the news with an opening press conference live at the Barclays this Wednesday (January 18).

What hasn’t been confirmed is the network. Keith Thurman’s last bout, a decision win over Shawn Porter last June, aired on CBS. Garcia fought in November on Spike, knocking out Samuel Vargas in seven rounds.

Tickets for the fight will also go on sale January 18. Fans who attend this Saturday’s (January 14) super middleweight bout between Badou Jack and James DeGale will receive access to an exclusive presale.
