Superstars Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez will be meeting each other on November 21st in the most highly anticipated fight for the remainder of the year. In this fight Miguel Cotto will be making the second defense of his WBC middleweight title at an agreed catchweight of 155lbs.

In an attempt to get the buzz for their fight to hit a fever pitch, they'll be kicking off a four-city international press tour that begins on Monday in Los Angeles. After hitting L.A. on Monday, the second stop of the tour will be on Tuesday in Mexico City, followed by New York on Wednesday, and finally Caguas, Puerto Rico to close it out (man I love that place!). All of the pressers will be free and open to the general public.

Tickets and sale prices for the fight are still being ironed out by Roc Nation Sports and Golden Boy, but it's expected that they'll be announced by early next week when the press tour begins.
