The next much-anticipated boxing match since the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight is the bout between Miguel Cotto and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, according to retired six-time boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya. He believes that the Cotto-Canelo fight will bring a thrilling excitement that boxing fans failed to witness in the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout. 

One matter is settled: The contract weight for the fight will be 155 pounds, five less than the middleweight limit of 160 and one over the junior middleweight limit of 154, both sides told ESPN.com. But this is not the sort of catch-weight fight anyone ought to get in a lather over. Neither fighter has any kind of advantage at that weight. In fact, it’s about as even as you could ask for in terms of the weight.

Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) has had his three previous fights -- wins over James Kirkland, Erislandy Lara and Alfredo Angulo -- contracted at 155 pounds.

Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs) weighed 155 pounds 13 months ago when he knocked out Sergio Martinez in the 10th round to win the middleweight championship, and he weighed 153½ pounds when he knocked out Daniel Geale in the fourth round in his first defense on June 6.
