Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto takes on Mexico's Samuel "Canelo" Alvarez in a much anticipated bout on Pay-Per-View this weekend. The fight will be broadcast live on Saturday, November 21 at 8 p.m. local time, and it'll cost you $59.99 for standard definition, or $69.99 for HD. Sure, you can splurge to watch the fight at home, or can head out and watch the fight at a local sports bar. Yes, there will be a cover charge, but it will be much less than that pay-per-view fee, leaving more money in the budget for food, booze and beer.
Here are 10 local joints that will be screening the fight on Saturday.
