Canelo vs Angulo: Official fight post for March 8 Showtime PPV main event

Canelo Alvarez and Alfredo Angulo are being promised as a "Toe to Toe" matchup for pay-per-view buyers on March 8. Check out the official fight poster.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

We're just about six weeks away from what will be the first pay-per-view event of 2014, and by May 3, we'll have already had three of them. Fun, right?! Anyway, the money-draining portion of boxing's schedule begins on March 8, when Canelo Alvarez returns from his first career loss to face Alfredo Angulo, who also lost his last fight, in a Showtime pay-per-view main event from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Here's the fight poster, which is pretty good:

After this one, we'll have Manny Pacquiao vs TBA (likely Tim Bradley) on April 12 from HBO PPV, and then Floyd Mayweather vs TBA (Amir Khan) on May 3 from SHO PPV again. We also appear headed for a June 7 HBO PPV main event between Miguel Cotto and Sergio Martinez. 2013 was a good year for both HBO and Showtime's brands, so now it's time to milk the cow.

You're the cow.
