NEW YORK (July 18, 2014) – Last Saturday’s SHOWTIME PPV® event headlined by Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara will premiere on SHOWTIME this Saturday at 9 p.m. ET/PT, immediately followed by the premiere of ALL ACCESS: Canelo vs. Lara Epilogue.
The SHOWTIME premiere of Canelo vs. Lara will also include last Saturday’s thrilling showdown between Juan Manuel Lopez and Francisco Vargas, which featured a Round of the Year candidate.
Canelo won a split decision at the sold-out MGM Grand, but the debate of who deserved the nod in the Mexico vs. Cuba showdown didn’t end after ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr. read the judges’ scorecards.
