HBO BOXING

About

"HBO Boxing" originally HBO World Championship Boxing (WCB) is an American sports television series that premiered on 22 January 1973 and that has shown a number of significant boxing events since then. WCB's first event ever was fought in Kingston, Jamaica, where George Foreman defeated Joe Frazier in two rounds to win the world heavyweight championship. The main broadcast team is Jim Lampley on blow-by-blow, with former ESPN reporter Max Kellerman as color commentator, replacing Larry Merchant, who retired in December 2012. For the last two years of Merchant's contract he and Kellerman alternated telecasts.
