HBO Latino new boxing series to debut 27 April

MUMBAI: HBO Sports introduces an exclusive Spanish-language boxing series that will launch on HBO Latino on 27 April. Five additional boxing events will be presented in 2006.

The Generación Boxeo series, an innovative and dedicated original program created for HBO Latino, will feature the best young Latino fighters, behind-the-scenes interviews and round-by-round Spanish-language commentary by Raul Marquez and Mario Solis.

"The Generación Boxeo series captures the action, spirit and fury of the ring for boxing enthusiasts," said director Brand Development at HBO Adrion Porter, "This is another great opportunity for us to continue the event-level type of sports programming that "Oscar De La Hoya Presenta Boxeo De Oro" did on HBO Latino previously."

The 27 April event will feature the delayed broadcast of three fights: Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., son of legendary Mexican champion Julio Cesar Chavez, against undefeated challenger Tyler Ziolkowski in a junior welterweight bout; unbeaten Mexican-American Juan Diaz defends his lightweight title against Jose Miguel Cotto, brother of Puerto Rican boxing sensation Miguel Cotto; and Mexican Jorge Arce, considered one of the best young fighters of the moment, takes on veteran and two-time champion Rosendo Alvarez of Nicaragua in a flyweight title fight.

Available in 45 per cent of HBO's cable households, HBO Latino is a dedicated Spanish-language channel designed to reflect the diversity of Latino culture in the country. HBO Latino features U.S. premieres of Spanish-language movies and documentaries; music videos; and original short-form programming, such as "Habla," that spotlights entertainment and cultural issues; plus a mix of popular Hollywood films and the best of HBO's originals.

Along with Generación Boxeo, boxing coverage on HBO Latino includes HBO's flagship World Championship Boxing series, with live ringside Spanish-language commentary, and the critically acclaimed HBO Boxing After Dark, states an official release.
