Here's the official poster from Top Rank for the September 10 fight between Yuriorkis Gamboa and Daniel Ponce de Leon. HBO will televise from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City:
It sure is nice to once again see the Top Rank and Golden Boy logos on the same poster. Getting those two companies back on agreeable terms isn't easy, and some serious work went into it, no matter how much they might say, "Ah, we just buried some old hatches and moved on." It's also good to keep in mind how fleeting this can be -- they worked together as recently as 2009, and put on some big fights in that run (2007-09), but then it went to hell and everyone swore to never work together again. I think it's fair to say that the Cold Wars will never last forever, but neither will the times of peace.
But this is a good first fight to get the companies at the same dinner table once more, and part of what is really a very strong fall lineup for HBO.
