On Wednesday, Nov. 18, four-division world champion Miguel Cotto and former junior middleweight titlist Saul “Canelo” Alvarez held their final press conference ahead of their HBO pay per view showdown this weekend from the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
The bout has been highly debated this far, with several pointing towards the craft and veteran prowess of the 35-year old Cotto to carry the day while others simply feel that Canelo’s youth, size, and power will be enough to give the 25-year old superstar from Jalisco, Mexico the edge.
And while nobody can deny that their will be a fever pitch in the air come Saturday night, the mood in the air in Las Vegas has thus far been tranquil due to the respect being given from both camps.
