HBO has boxing live tonight, too, and it's a good one. In the main event, Amir Khan defends his WBA junior welterweight belt against the man he was earlier this year accused of ducking, big-punching Marcos Maidana of Argentina. It's Khan's first Las Vegas main event, and Golden Boy is obviously hoping he becomes a flagship star, but that could all crash tonight very easily. In the co-feature, another pair of intriguing junior welterweights collide as Lamont Peterson faces Victor Ortiz. We will do our best to bring live coverage of the main event after the Showtime card ends.
NOTE: Please do not post "spoilers" about the Showtime card in this thread.
