On Friday, December 12th, Showtime is offering a unique doubleheader. First, we get the world premiere of the documentary “Nas: Time is Illmatic” which looks at Nas and his groundbreaking 1994 debut album, Illmatic.
Right after the premiere of the Nas documentary on Showtime comes some action in the ring, with Erislandy Lara taking on Ishe Smith in a 154 lbs title fight. The fight begins at 10:25 pm eastern, and the documentary premieres at 9pm on Showtime that Friday.
Nas comes from a place where boxing has always been big, and where many notable boxers hail. And of course, hip hop culture continues to be intertwined with today’s boxers, their gyms and what they represent.
Enjoy the quick video preview of both right here and keep on coming back for more boxing news all day, every day (Except probably a little less tomorrow — Happy Thanksgiving!) right here at ProBoxing-Fans.com.
