On Saturday night, Nov. 21, Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez overcame a stern test from four-division world champion Miguel Cotto over 12 rounds before capturing a unanimous decision inside of the Mandaly Bay Hotel & Casino.
Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KO’s) shined on HBO pay per view, as his poised attack, mixed with his power and sheer size and strength advantages, was a little too much for his 35-year old foe. Cotto (40-5, 33 KO’s) was competitively but was also unable to amount a sustained attack that would have helped turn the tide.
