HBO Sports returns to Canada for the first time in three decades for the HBO Boxing After Dark card featuring Lucian Bute vs Librado Andrade II and Joan Guzman vs Ali Funeka.
This Saturday HBO Sports returns to Canada for the first time in over 3 decades. Yes it has been that long since 1977.
This Thanksgiving weekend HBO's Boxing After Dark brings us the highly anticipated rematch of Lucian Bute vs Librado Andrade II. Their first exciting fight ended in a controversial unanimous decision awarded to the IBF super middleweight champion Bute.
Lucian Bute (24-0-0, 19 KOs) is eager to prove to the world that it was no fluke and he is indeed a true champion in front of his home town crowd of Montreal. Librado Andrade (28-2-0, 21 KOs) is out to show the people of Canada why he should have been awarded the win in their initial October 2008 fight.
The opening fight is also a good one with undefeated Joan Guzman (29-0, 17 KOs) and Ali Funeka (30-2-2, 25 KOs) fighting for the vacant IBF light weight title. Joan Guzman fights almost exactly like top pound for pound undefeated American star Floyd Mayweather Jr mostly because of his training being Floyd Mayweather Senior.
Ali Funeka is a tall lanky fighter who won over many fans in his tought fight with veteran Nate Campbell.
It all takes place from the Colisée Pepsi in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada and it can only be watched on HBO Saturday November 28th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT & 9:00 p.m. CT.
Other HBO playdates: Nov. 29 (8:45 a.m.) and 30 (11:40 p.m.)
