Cotto has experienced a late career resurgence with the help of legendary trainer, Freddie Roach, and has posted dominate performances against Sergio Martinez and Daniel Geale. Canelo, meanwhile, has rebounded quite nicely since his September 2013 loss to Floyd Mayweather with impressive wins over Alfredo Angulo, Erislandy Lara and James Kirkland.
