WATCH: Cotto-Kirkland Press Conference

On February 25, Miguel Cotto and James Kirkland with both end long layoffs when they return to the ring in a 12-round main event at the Ford Center in Texas.

Cotto (40-5) remains a big name in the sport, but he is 36 years old and has not fought since a unanimous decision loss to Canelo Alvarez back in November of 2015.

Kirkland (32-2) similarly has not fought since a loss to Canelo, though his was more brutal and decisive. In May of 2015, Canelo knocked out Kirkland in the third round after staggering him multiple times.

Both fighters will look to avoid suffering back-to-back setbacks when they face off in Texas. There has been some criticism surrounding the fight being sold as an HBO pay-per-view given the stakes of the matchup.
