Nov. 14, 2014 – HBO Sports, widely acclaimed for its innovative and provocative boxing programming initiatives, introduces an all-new special when UNDER THE LIGHTS: PACQUIAO-ALGIERI debuts Saturday, Nov. 15 at 11:45 p.m. (ET/PT) on HBO. The special will dig deep and put the upcoming HBO Pay-Per-View® showdown on Nov. 22 between world welterweight champ Manny Pacquiao and fast-rising challenger Chris Algieri under the spotlight.
Hosted by HBO Boxing commentator Max Kellerman, UNDER THE LIGHTS will feature two respected and opinionated experts: accomplished welterweight star Timothy Bradley Jr. and renowned trainer Virgil Hunter.
