Tonight at 10:15 p.m. EDT on HBO in the United States, and Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, HBO Boxing After Dark is back with an explosive main event in the junior middleweight division.
Live from Cancun, Golden Boy 154-pounders Alfredo Angulo (20-1, 17 KO) and James Kirkland (29-1, 26 KO) will collide in what promises to be an all-action brawl. It's sort of a make-or-break fight for both fighters, who have gained hardcore fans' approval over the years with their ferocious styles. Both have experienced professional and personal setbacks since this fight was first dreamed about in 2008. But the fight is going to have fireworks.
The co-feature will see middleweights Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin (25-0, 19 KO) and Craig McEwan (19-1, 10 KO) go toe-to-toe in a 10-round fight. Quillin is righting the career ship this year, and a win over the tough McEwan could be the next step toward a title shot for him. McEwan is coming off of his first career loss to Andy Lee in March.
Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round coverage tonight from Andrew Fruman. Join us!
