HBO to air Collins-Resto documentary on Aug. 1

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

The much talked-about documentary covering the infamous 1983 fight between Luis Resto and Billy Collins has been renamed Assault in the Ring (originally called Cornered) and will air on HBO on August 1 at 10pm ET. This is one everyone should watch. It's one of the all-time worst stories in boxing history, but it's important to not forget that it happened.

Here's the original trailer, which I feel is more compelling than the HBO trailer. But rest assured it's the same film.
