It's almost showtime inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. And that means it's time for another installment of "24/7," wherein HBO takes a look at Miguel Cotto and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's preparations for their catchweight showdown later this evening (Sat., Nov. 21, 2015) on pay-per-view (PPV).
In addition, we will offer a live, free stream of the untelevised preliminary undercard matches, formerly headlined by a title fight between IBF Bantamweight champion Randy Caballero, who lost his belt on the scale, and challenger Lee Haskins. Haskins turned down a Catchweight bout, as Caballero not only missed Bantamweight but also Super Bantamweight.
Want to take a look at Cotto's new home at Wild Card gym? HBO has got you covered. Want to watch Team Canelo suck at basketball to the lovely strings of Carmen's "Toreador Song?" Damn right, HBO has got what you need.
Other than that, the episode shows the standard assortment of travel, workouts, tape and slow-mo shots of "Sin City" from various perspectives. Plus, Freddie Roach and Oscar de la Hoya look back on another pair of legendary Mexico vs. Puerto Rico showdowns: Salvador Sanchez vs. Wilfredo Gomez and de la Hoya's own bout with Felix Trinidad.
See you there, Maniacs!
