What: Cotto-Canelo | When: Saturday, 9 p.m. ET | Where: Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nev.
Miguel Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs) will go up against Canelo Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
Cotto comes in with wins in his last three bouts, including a dominant fourth-round knockout of Daniel Geale in his last bout. Alvarez has been just as hot, winning his last three bouts since his lone loss to Floyd Mayweather in 2013. Alvarez knocked out James Kirkland in the third round of his last bout to earn this title shot.
Despite being the previous belt-holder (vacated this week) Cotto is the underdog in this fight at +200, while Alvarez is the -260 favorite. If Cotto wins the belt will remain vacant. If Alvarez wins, he will claim the WBC world middleweight title and be the lineal champion.
