24/7: Cotto vs. Canelo - Episode 1

Check out the first episode of 24/7 ahead of the monumental matchup between Miguel Cotto and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez on November 21st.

One of the biggest boxing fights of the year will go down on November 21st when four-division champion Miguel Cotto takes on former light middleweight champ Saul Alvarez. Both men are top fighters in the sport, and will reignite the famous boxing rivalry between Puerto Rico and Mexico. Other than the "Fight of the Century" bout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather in May, this will likely be the biggest-selling boxing event of 2015.

Check out the first episode of the 24/7 series leading up to the bout above.

Cotto (44-4, 33 KO) is coming off a 4th-round TKO win over Daniel Geale in June, while Canelo (45-1-1, 32 KO) picked up a knockout win over James Kirkland in a May stadium show in Houston in his last outing.

The bout will be for Cotto's middleweight titles. It will take place in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, and will air live on pay-per-view.

Andre Ward was expected to fight on the card as well, but has since withdrawn due to an injury.
