AT&T Stadium sets pandemic record with boxing crowd of 73,126

Mike Florio and Peter King draft the best quartets in the NFL, including the Browns, Chiefs and Buccaneers.

Jerry Jones expects AT&T Stadium to be packed this fall to see his Cowboys play. He got a preview of what that will look like Saturday night for the highly anticipated boxing match between Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders.

AT&T Stadium announced a crowd of 73,126, the biggest crowd for an American sporting event since the pandemic began last year. It also set a U.S. boxing record for the largest indoor crowd.

Face coverings are mandatory for stadium workers but masks and social distancing are encouraged, not required, for fans, according to the AT&T Stadium website.

It remains to be seen what the crowd size, absent social distancing and mask wearing, means in the fight against COVID-19. Some health officials in Tarrant County expressed concern about the potential for an uptick in COVID-19 cases.

But it is the latest sign that things are moving closer to a new normal.
