    NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2015 – HBO Sports’ groundbreaking “24/7” reality franchise, which has captured 18 Sports Emmy®Awards, returns for its 21st multi-part boxing installment with 24/7 COTTO/CANELO, it was announced today by Rick Bernstein, executive producer, HBO Sports. Debuting SATURDAY, NOV. 7 (11:45 p.m.-12:15 a.m. ET/PT), immediately following the “World Championship Boxing” doubleheader that begins at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT), the behind-the-scenes series follows two elite fighters as they prepare for their pay-per-view middleweight title showdown Nov. 21 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

                The series will also be available on HBO On Demand®, HBO NOW and HBO GO®.

                “The intensity, rivalry and significance of Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico versus Canelo Alvarez of Mexico will make for great storytelling in this all-new edition of ‘24/7’,” noted Bernstein. “This is a mega-fight that will generate tremendous interest, and we look forward to documenting the multiple storylines generated by this red-hot showdown.”

                Episode two of 24/7 COTTO/CANELO debuts Thursday, Nov. 19 (11:00-11:30 p.m.), two nights before the high-stakes bout.

The 34-year-old Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs), from Caguas, Puerto Rico, is the reigning lineal world middleweight champ. His formidable foe is 25-year-old Canelo Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs), of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, who has turned back an impressive list of challengers.
