Leading up to the Canelo Alvarez vs. Amir Khan fight set for Saturday, May 7 and presented live by HBO Pay-Per-View – HBO Sports will present the exclusive replay of two intriguing showdowns that highlight what these two men have accomplished.
On Friday, April 29 at 11:00 p.m. HBO2 will replay Cotto vs. Canelo 2015 and Khan vs. Maidana 2010 back-to-back. This past November in the bright spotlight of Las Vegas, Canelo imposed his strength on a valiant warrior as he scored a major win over sure-fire Hall of Famer Miguel Cotto to capture the lineal world middleweight championship. On December 11, 2010 in Las Vegas, Khan won a unanimous decision against the highly skilled Marcos Maidana in a high-action contest that earned BWAA selection for “Fight of the Year” honors.
Cotto vs. Canelo represents by far the biggest win of Canelo’s career. While Khan vs. Maidana seems like a lifetime ago, it was a big win for Khan, as he hurt Maidana early on and went onto win the fight after having to survive some scares in the closing moments.
Canelo vs. Khan takes place Saturday, May 7 at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
