Miguel Cotto vs. Canelo Álvarez was a professional boxing event which took place on November 21, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Paradise, Nevada. It was televised by HBO pay-per-view.
Alvarez won the fight on November 21, a day that has proven good for Mexican boxers fighting Puerto Ricans in major fights, as was the case in 1987 when Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. beat Edwin Rosario, by technical knockout in round eleven, also in Las Vegas.
