Cotto vs Canelo: '24/7' episode 1 full HBO video replay

We're less than two weeks away from an absolutely terrific boxing card. And HBO is doing its part to cultivate hype, releasing the first episode of its customary "24/7" series in preparation for Miguel Cotto vs. Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

This Middleweight championship showdown represents a rare combination of good matchmaking, massive fanbases and potential for absolute fireworks. Both of these men are ferocious finishers with savage body attacks -- it's incredibly likely that this will be a fight for the ages.

Cotto (40-4, 33 KO) has totally reinvigorated his career under the tutelage of Freddie Roach, knocking out his last three opponents in violent fashion since his disappointing loss to Austin Trout. Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KO). Canelo has likewise been on the warpath after his loss to Floyd Mayweather, most recently annihilating James Kirkland with a savage right hand.

Even with the loss of Andre Ward, however, the main event is far from alone. The undercard will feature a pair of solid title fights, including a clash between Takashi Miura and Francisco Vargas with a real possibility of being something special.

This isn't just salesmanship -- this card is going to be awesome. Hope you join us next weekend, Maniacs.

Remember, MMAmania will deliver LIVE coverage of "Cotto vs. Canelo," starting with the HBO pay-per-view (PPV) broadcast from inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Nov. 21, 2015.
