*Insert overplayed Europe song*

We're just hours away from boxing's latest blockbuster pay-per-view (PPV) event. And the hype is real. Enjoy this preview from HBO Boxing, which details the Middleweight championship showdown between Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez that will take place tonight (Sat., Nov. 21, 2015) inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Remember, too, that MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE coverage of "Cotto vs. Canelo," starting with the HBO PPV broadcast at 9 p.m. ET.

In addition, we'll provide a free live stream of the untelevised preliminary undercard, which formerly featured an IBF championship bout between titleholder Randy Cabellero and challenger Lee Haskins. Cabellero missed weight by five pounds and Haskins turned down a Catchweight.

While Cotto and Canelo will serve as the main event, they're far from alone on the PPV show. WBC Super Featherweight Champion Takashi Miura defends his belt against Francisco Vargas, Guillermo Rigondeaux returns from a nearly 11-month layoff to face Drian Francisco, and undefeated Jayson Velez takes on Ronny Rios.

It's an excellent card overall. And if UFC Fight Night: "Monterrey" isn't doing it for you (get complete, live results here), we'd be glad to have you guys join us here. We'll keep you posted either way.
