Fightnews says that a same day coverage of two world title fights will be coming from China on HBO 2. They will be as follows:

Rocky Martinez (Champ) vs #1 contender Diego Magdaleno (WBO Jr. Lightweight Championship)

-AND-

Brian Vilora (Unified Champion) vs. Juan Estrada (WBA/WBO Flyweight Championship)

Plus.

China’s two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and three-time World Amateur Champion Zou Shiming.

Broadcasting will be Larry Merchant, Tim Ryan, and Big George Foreman!

Please have this work out! I would love to see Tim Ryan and Big George over at HBO. Especially George again. Years ago, I thought he said idiotic things, but now I miss him. I would gladly dump Max Kellerman and Bob " Little Enthusiasm" for Tim and George.

Screw this dude! He's about to be another fighter that HBO tries to shove up our asses as the next big star.

Who in the hell wants to see his pro debut anyway? Isn't that shit only gonna be 4 rounds? Scratch that, it probably wont even go the whole 4 rounds. No way they put this guy in against somebody that will hand his ass to him.

+1. And I think he's gonna be the main event too. It's like who gives a fuck? The actually fights are the two championships on the card.

I wish I was! Hopefully I am wrong. In fact, I am so disgusted with the way that HBO has been pom-poming this "Build an Olympic star against a sacrificial lamb, that in greater thinking about this, I may not watch it live. Why give them ratings points for an untested 4-round fighter that HBO can go ga-ga over, like CShel said, try to force an Olympian down our throat just because he's an Olympian? I hate these kind of fights. It's almost a foregone conclusion of what's gonna happen.

Yea, I did read that somewhere, that this 4 round nothing POS is gonna be the main event. If that's true, fuck the whole promotion of this card, seriously.

Wow, just.....WOW!!....this is an unproven cat they pushing on us and I know they gon play up the Olympic angle but what pisses me off is that they just jumped on the Andre ward bandwagon when he proved himself over at Showtime. HBO is like a misguided parent and we the fans are the kids who have to take care of them to get them to get their shit straight
