We're just a day away now from Miguel Cotto's big middleweight title defense against Canelo Alvarez on HBO pay-per-view, and this afternoon at 5:30 pm EST / 2:30 pm PST, we'll have live streaming video of the weigh-in event from Las Vegas.
Cotto (40-4, 33 KO) and Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KO) have each won three straight fights, and will meet with a 155-pound catchweight. The true middleweight championship is -- like it or not -- on the line in this fight, even though the WBC stripped Cotto, 35, of their belt earlier this week, in a surprising move.
On the undercard, there will be two other world title bouts, as Takashi Miura (29-2-2, 22 KO) makes his U.S. debut against Francisco Vargas (22-0-1, 16 KO) in a defense of the WBC super featherweight title, and Randy Caballero (22-0, 13 KO) returns after a 13-month injury layoff to make his first defense of the IBF bantamweight belt against Lee Haskins (32-3, 14 KO). Also in action will be new Roc Nation Sports signing Guillermo Rigondeaux (15-0, 10 KO), the reigning super bantamweight world champion. Rigondeaux will face Drian Francisco (28-3-1, 22 KO) in a 10-round featherweight bout.
