FOX to air Cotto-Mosley, Trout-Alvarez on Saturday

FOX Deportes Classics will air two of the biggest victories in the careers of four-time, three-division titlewinner Miguel Cotto and WBA “regular” beltholder Austin Trout   in advance of their Showtime-televised junior middleweight clash on Dec. 1 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

FOX Deportes’ broadcast will start at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on Saturday with Trout’s unanimous decision victory over Rigoburto Alvarez in February of last year for his current belt before Alvarez’s partisan fans at the Arena Colseo in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The then-34-year-old brother of WBC titleholder, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Rigoburto was after his fourth straight victory and his third knockout during that run against Trout.

Following the Trout-Alvarez broadcast, FOX will show Cotto’s unanimous decision victory over Shane Mosley that occurred at Madison Square Garden in November of 2007 in defense of Cotto’s WBA 147-pound crown.

Starting at 11 p.m. ET/PT, TeleFutura “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” will show Cotto-Mosley.
