“This is going to be a success. Look at the people, look at the cameras, everybody’s excited,” De La Hoya said. “This has the ingredients to surpass De La Hoya vs. Trinidad; to hit the 2 million mark on PPV. This is a big event, a mega event, so we’re not worried about that, we’re worried about making sure that this fight delivers.” said De La Hoya.
Cotto vs Canelo promises to be one of the best fights of the year as the Puerto Rican vs Mexican boxing rivalry lives on. Both fighters have only brought in more the a million dollars once in there career and that came against the same fighter, Floyd Mayweather. Canelo and Cotto have never brought in a million plus when being on the A side of a fight. Now, both fighters have the opportunity to do so and in the process put boxing back on the map.
Cotto and Canelo are two of the biggest boxers the sport has to offer and on November 21st they go head to head. After a flop of a fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquaio that brought in 4.4 million purchases Cotto and Canelo look to show sports fans what boxing is really about.
The fight has different meaning to both fighters, for Cotto it is one step closer to solidifying himself as one of the best Puerto Rican boxers ever and possibly leading him to a rematch against Floyd Mayweather. For Canelo is about continuing his young bright career. Alvarez is just twenty five years old and has a record of 45-1-1.
One thing is for sure, the fight in November will be a fight, not one guy dancing around the ring while the other man chases him. Cotto and Canelo are two powerful and entertaining boxers that give it there all every time they step in the ring. The price for the fight is slated to be around $64.95 SD/$74.95 HD .
