Amir Khan squares off with Lamont Peterson tonight in the final HBO boxing broadcast of the year, with one televised co-feature fight (I promise you, if you ask me if there's a televised undercard after this has been made very clear, you're getting a 48-hour ban) and a couple of familiar names off-TV, as well.
Here's the info on how to watch tonight:
Fight time: 9:45 p.m. EST
Location: Convention Center - Washington, DC
TV channel: HBO (United States) / Sky Sports 1 (United Kingdom)
Odds: Khan is an almost surprisingly huge favorite, pulling in lines between -1100 and -1333, with Peterson at +600 to +875.
Televised Undercard: Heavyweight prospect Seth Mitchell steps up in class to take on veteran Timur Ibragimov. No, this is not the Ibragimov that stunk out Madison Square Garden with Wladimir Klitschko. He never came back to boxing. This one also had nothing to do with Evander Holyfield and a dolphin.
The off-TV undercard tonight notably features the return of Lamont's brother, lightweight Anthony Peterson, who faces trial horse Daniel Attah after 15 months out of the ring. Attah (26-8-1, 9 KO) was recently seen on October 1 in Puerto Rico, getting whomped by Roman Martinez. Peterson (30-1, 20 KO) is not exactly on the good side of boxing fans after his low blow fest against Brandon Rios, although I suspect that someone hitting Rios in the junk that many times now might get a more favorable reaction from some.
Fernando Guerrero (21-1, 16 KO) also looks to get his ship righted after his first career loss in June to Grady Brewer, a stunning fourth round TKO on Friday Night Fights. Guerrero is in against Robert Kliewer (11-13-2, 5 KO) in what is set up as a very easy bounce-back fight near Guerrero's home base in Salisbury, Maryland.
And then there's Dublin's Jamie Kavanagh (8-0, 3 KO), a Wild Card Gym-trained lightweight who has appeared on HBO's 24/7 a couple times. He'll face Ramesis Gil (6-3-4, 5 KO).
Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage of the HBO broadcast tonight at 9:45 p.m. EST.
