For over a decade now, HBO Boxing After Dark has helped put rising boxers on the map. Premiering in 1996, HBO Boxing After Dark – also known as BAD for short – has gone on to be a cable television boxing phenomenon. Although a few well-known fighters may make the occasional appearance, boxing fans can usually catch fights between lesser-caliber contenders on the rise rather than “championship” or “title” fights.
Showcasing bouts between boxers who have something to prove, HBO Boxing After Dark has given many boxers their start. The first fight to premier on HBO Boxing After Dark was a thrilling 12-round match between the then-unknown talent, Marco Antonio Barrera v. Kennedy McKinney. Barrera – who won by KO – went on to face the likes of Rocky Juarez, Juan Manuel Marquez, and Manny Pacquiao on grander stages.
In 2006, HBO Boxing After Dark began its 10th season boasting a new lineup. Fran Charles, Max Kellermen, and former world heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis replaced Jim Lampley and Larry Merchant as commentators. While fans of HBO Boxing After Dark can catch fights televised about once a month, boxing fans will truly appreciate the chance to the experience each HBO Boxing After Dark match live.
One of the biggest HBO Boxing After Dark events lined up will take place on September 6, 2008, in Houston, Texas’ Toyota Center. Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions presents the first-ever “Houston Super Fight Night,” with Houston’s own Juan Diaz along with Rocky Juarez headlining co-main event fights.
