Should be a damn good night of boxing on HBO, starting at 10:15 ET. This main event is, on paper, a bona fide Fight of the Year contender, and the opening bout is a fine matchup as well. This is what Boxing After Dark is all about: action fighters in action fights.

Three cards in two days -- welcome back, boxing.
