Miguel Cotto Career Special on HBO, November 25

HBO Sports, with a 44-year tradition in professional boxing, takes a deep dive into the career of sure-fire Hall of Famer Miguel Cotto, the most accomplished and decorated fighter in Puerto Rican history, as he prepares to make one last ring appearance next month against  former U.S. Olympian Sadam Ali when MIGUEL COTTO: A RETROSPECTIVE debuts SATURDAY, NOV. 25 at 12:45 p.m. ET/PT immediately following the live HBO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® tripleheader telecast from New York.

The special will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO® and HBO On Demand®, and at hbo.com/boxing, as well as other new media platforms.

Four-division and six-time world champion Miguel Cotto (41-5, 33 KOs), returns to the ring for the final time in what will mark the end of an era for the future Hall of Famer. Cotto will look to successfully defend his junior middleweight title in his last outing before a packed crowd of loyal New York supporters as he closes the book on his legendary career.

HBO Sports production cameras will visit Cotto as well as family members in Puerto Rico to tell his backstory --- both personal and professional – as he trains for the final time in Hollywood, CA under the guidance of Freddie Roach.   The Caguas, Puerto Rico native will also sit with Jim Lampley for a retrospective on his accomplishments.

On Saturday, Dec. 2, Cotto and Ali meet at the World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden in New York in a 12-round 154-pound world title bout that will be televised live on HBO beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. This will mark Cotto’s 24th appearance on the network and his 10th showcase at MSG.

[QUOTE=KingTito;18218223]Cotto isn’t perfect, and he received some criticism, especially towards the end from some fans. Some of it justified. But the bottom line is, the sport was better because of him, and it would be better off if more fighters…
