HBO's Boxing After Dark returns this Saturday, May 30 with an exciting doubleheader.
Undefeated welterweight champion Andre Berto (24-0, 19 KOs) faces off with heavy-handed, aggressive power-punching Colombian Juan Urango (21-1-1, 16 KOs).
The night gets kicked off with the fast rising star, top-rated junior middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo (15-0, 12 KOs) from Coachella, Calif., fighting former welterweight champion Kermit Cintron (30-2-1, 27 KOs) in a 12-round junior middleweight bout.
This will be by far Angulo's toughest opponent to date. Angulo, also known as "Perro"— meaning "dog" in Spanish—is probably the most dominant wrecking force in the junior middleweight division, especially now with the uncertain future of James Kirkland.
HBO will exclusively televise these fights on Saturday May 30, 2009 at 9:45 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT) from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Ft. Lauderdale.
The HBO Sports® team of Bob Papa, Max Kellerman, and Lennox Lewis will be ringside for the event, which will be available in HDTV, closed-captioned for the hearing-impaired and presented in Spanish on HBO Latino.
