    Boxing History - HBO Boxing After Dark Anniversary Show

    in Sports

    February 3, 1996: Marco Antonio Barrera TKO12 Kennedy McKinney. That means that almost exactly 20 years ago HBO debuted the Boxing After Dark series with much success. The series has gone on to become nearly legendary, and HBO's boxing programming has at times become synonymous with the sport itself.


    On this boxing history episode of Top Men Boxing Radio, Aris Pina of Compubox and The Fight City's Patrick Connor talk about the various Boxing After Dark shows that have left imprints on their memories. From Ivan Robinson vs Arturo Gatti, to Erik Morales vs Daniel Zaragoza and onto his rivalry with Barrera himself. There was heavyweight action with Derrick Jefferson vs Maurice Harris too, but a whole lot more than that.
