They're finishing out 2008 with a bang!
November 8, Roy Jones Jr Vs Joe Calzaghe
November 15, Taylor Vs Lacy
November 22, Hatton Vs Malignaggi
Novmber 29, Williams Vs Phillips
Dec. 6, Pacquiao Vs De La Hoya
Dce. 13, Klitschko Vs Rahman
Then the best of 2008 show! THUMPS UP FOR HBO!
Personally, I think if they really wanted to get people excited about boxing again, they should have finished 2008 with:
November 8: Calzaghe vs. Dawson or Hopkins vs. Jones
November 15: Taylor vs. Kessler or Lacy vs. Miranda
November 22: Hatton vs. Torres or Malignaggi vs. Bradley
November 29: Williams vs. Margarito II or Phillips vs. Mayorga
December 6: De La Hoya vs. Cintron* or Pacquiao vs. Campbell
* Note: I'd say Margarito, but we all know De La Hoya would look for an easier opponent. While Cintron is very beatable, I have a funny feeling he'll probably be a tad bit more danger for De La Hoya than Pacquiao ever will.
December 13: Klitschko vs. Valuev or Rahman vs. Peter
Call me crazy, but I think any of those fights just listed will prove to be better matchups, more competitive and provide more fireworks than any of the current fights that HBO has slated.
