HBO Boxing presents a sizzling night of ring action when HBO Boxing After Dark: David Lemieux vs. Gabriel Rosado, Hugo Centeno Jr. vs. James De la Rosa, Thomas Dulorme vs. Hank Lundy takes place this Saturday, December 6th at 10 pm from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

In the main event, engaging David Lemieux (32-2, 30 KOs) of Montreal brings his hard-hitting reputation to HBO for the first time. This 12-round, 160-pound middleweight fight has all the earmarks of a brawl, as he meets Philadelphia’s hard-nosed Gabriel Rosado (21-8, 13 KOs). It’s a must-win fight for either man to try to get himself into the title picture, and for Rosado, he moves ever-closer to “opponent” status with another defeat.

In the middle bout, the highly-regarded Hugo Centeno Jr. (21-0, 11 KOs), from the boxing hotbed of Oxnard, Cal., meets James De La Rosa (23-2, 13 KOs) of Harlingen, Tex., in a middleweight clash scheduled for ten rounds. De La Rosa is coming off the biggest victory of his career over Alfredo Angulo.

The opening bout is an intriguing 140-pound junior welterweight showdown featuring Puerto Rico’s Thomas Dulorme (21-1, 14 KOs) and Philadelphia’s Hank Lundy (25-3-1, 12 KOs). The scheduled ten-round fight is Dulorme’s fourth bout in New York. The winner of the Dulorme vs. Lundy bout is immediately in the big-fight and title picture in the crowded and competitive junior welterweight division.
