Saturday’s HBO Boxing After Dark doubleheader telecast airs at 10:00 p.m. The telecast kicks off live from the Adrian Phillips Ballroom at Boardwalk Hall when junior welterweights Thomas Dulorme and Karim Mayfield clash for 10 rounds. The evening’s main attraction features a matchup of undefeateds as 175-pound champion Sergey Kovalev squares off against Cedric Agnew in 12-round title fight.
Kovalev is a can’t-miss attraction these days in boxing, and this is his first headliner on HBO. Should be a memorable one, and we’ll see if Agnew can even stretch him past 4 rounds for a change.
