HBO cancels April 26 boxing card

With Golovkin-Lee not happening and no suitable replacement, HBO Sports won't have a fight card on April 26.

After the Gennady Golovkin vs Andy Lee fight was canceled with Golovkin taking time to mourn the passing of his father, HBO Sports has decided to do away with the date and focus on other dates for the remainder of the year.

Golovkin-Lee may be rescheduled, or Golovkin could end up fighting Julio Cesar Chavez Jr on July 12, though at the moment it appears that won't happen. That fight was slated to be on HBO pay-per-view. They're also looking at a May 17 fight between Juan Manuel Marquez and Mike Alvarado.

Promoter Lou DiBella had hoped to sell HBO a fight between Matthew Macklin and Andy Lee for April 26, but it's probably no surprise that isn't going to happen.

HBO's next card will be on March 29, with a doubleheader featuring light heavyweight titleholder Sergey Kovalev defending against Cedric Agnew in the main event, and junior welterweights Karim Mayfield and Thomas Dulorme in the co-feature. HBO's next scheduled fight after that, right now, is the May 31 rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves. There are pay-per-view cards on April 12 (Pacquiao-Bradley II) and June 7 (Cotto-Martinez).
