As the promotion for Cotto-Canelo gains more steam as we near the Nov. 21st fight date, HBO and Golden Boy have just announced that the fight will be shown in theaters across the country. A deal made with Fathom Events will allow fans to go to theaters to experience the same presentation as PPV customers -- only on a much bigger screen. Advance tickets for the fight can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com and select box offices.
HBO has also announced that they'll be airing a two-episode installment of their 24//7 series ahead of the fight. "24/7 Cotto/Canelo" will kick off immediately following the Timothy Bradley vs. Brandon Rios fight on Nov. 7, with an anticipated start time of about 11:45pm EST. The second episode will be shown on Nov. 19th at about 11pm EST. This will be Cotto's fifth appearance on HBO's 24/7 series, while Canelo Alvarez will be making his debut.
