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

Tonight at 10 p.m. EST, HBO goes live with the network's first boxing show of 2012, a double-header featuring a pair of title fights.

In the main event, WBC middleweight titlist Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (44-0-1, 31 KO) defends against Marco Antonio Rubio (53-5-1, 46 KO) in a 12-round bout. Chavez is making the second defense of the title he won from Sebastian Zbik last June, following a win over Peter Manfredo Jr in November.

The co-feature will decide the vacant WBO super bantamweight title. Nonito Donaire (27-1, 18 KO) is back in action in his first fight at 122 pounds, facing ex-titlist Wilfredo Vazquez Jr (21-1-1, 18 KO) in another 12-round bout. Donaire is looking to pick up a title belt in a third weight class, following titles at 112 and 118 (he won only an interim belt in his stopover at 115).

These two fights will conclude a long day of live coverage here at Bad Left Hook, so join us as we wrap up our first really big weekend of fights this year.
