SBN Fight Night at Bad Left Hook: Povetkin v. Chambers

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

IBF Heavyweight Title Eliminator Final
(14-0, 11 KO, Kursk, Russia)
(30-0, 16 KO, Philadelphia, PA)

Show starts at 10pm eastern on HBO's Boxing After Dark, with the Jones-Trinidad replay up first. I would guess Povetkin-Chambers will go on around 11.

This is the second major heavyweight fight of 2008, following Chagaev-Skelton last weekend. The heavies do have a more promising lineup this year: Klitschko-Ibragimov and Maskaev-Peter are both major fights for the division, and the Valuev-Liakhovich eliminator isn't bad, even if I don't really understand how Sergei Liakhovich gets an eliminator slot for skipping 2007 while even John Ruiz kept fighting. And there's Ruiz-McCline in March, too.

The show is not live on HBO, it's on tape delay. Please do not post any spoilers. And if I were you, I'd entirely avoid
