What’s winter without some ice skating and this weekend The Cosmopolitan Hotel’s beloved Ice Rink makes its highly anticipated return!

Watch Cotto Vs Canelo at Mandalay Bay

Boxing LV

The WBC Middleweight championship is on the line Saturday night when Miguel Cotto battles Canelo Alvarez. While this may not have the name of appeal of a Floyd Mayweather bout, you can be sure that the boxing will be much better with these two rivals squaring off. There is also a pretty stacked undercard of fights too, so you are assured of a full night of thrilling in-ring action.
