24/7 Hopkins/Kovalev Premieres 10/18 on HBO

In anticipation of the fall boxing season’s signature event – the world light heavyweight unification battle between Bernard Hopkins and Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev on November 8th – HBO Sports will air “24/7 Hopkins/Kovalev,” an exhilarating one episode, 30-minute special examining the upcoming mega-showdown. In the highly-anticipated 175-pound title fight set for the venerable Boardwalk Hall arena in Atlantic City, NJ, on Nov. 8, Hopkins and Kovalev will collide in the year’s most intriguing encounter. HBO will televise it live on the flagship World Championship Boxing series.

The “24/7 Hopkins/Kovalev” special will premiere Saturday, Oct. 18 at 12:15 a.m. ET/PT on HBO immediately following the live World Championship Boxing event from Carson, CA. It will preview the hotly anticipated meeting between two accomplished warriors who have been on a journey to confront each other in the ring. The special will provide all-new content including portraits of both fighters’ path to this significant fall showdown on boxing’s leading television platform.

Hopkins, 49, will enter the ring just two months shy of his 50th birthday as the oldest champion in history and boasts a Hall of Fame- caliber career record of 55-6-2 with 32 KOs. Kovalev, 31, sports an undefeated record of 25-0-1 and his 23 knockouts illustrate the punching power that the Russian native who now calls Ft. Lauderdale home will display in Atlantic City on November 8.
