JORGE ARCE VS. HAWK MAKEPULA AND JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, JR. VS. MATTHEW STRODE
IT'S A SHOWDOWN OF TOP CONTENDERS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 ON HBO BOXING AFTER DARK

The tenth season of the hit late-night HBO boxing series rolls on with the intriguing HBO BOXING AFTER DARK doubleheader: JORGE ARCE VS. HAWK MAKEPULA AND JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, JR. VS. MATTHEW STRODE is seen live SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) from the Dodge Arena in Hidalgo, Texas, exclusively on HBO. The BOXING AFTER DARK team of Fran Charles, Max Kellerman and Lennox Lewis will be ringside for the event, which will be presented in Spanish language on HBO Latino.

In the main event, flyweight king Jorge Arce (44-3-1, 34 KO's) from Los Mochis, Mexico battles Hawk Makepula (28-3, 18 KO's) from East London, South Africa in a scheduled 12 round, super flyweight contest. Arce, a former junior flyweight champion, is considered among the toughest and most relentless fighters in the lower weight classes. Fresh off a sixth round knockout of Rosendo Alvarez in April, Arce will now move up in weight to take on the biggest challenge of his career. Makepula, a world class, top-rated veteran contender faces perhaps his toughest test to date stepping into the ring with Arce in a fight at 115 pounds that could establish either fighter as the man to beat in the flyweight divisions.

The night's opening bout features another pair of exciting fighters as undefeated and fast-rising welterweight Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (26-0-1, 20 KO's), from Culican, Mexico, takes on solid up-and-comer Matthew Strode (20-1, 9 KO's), from Greensboro, North Carolina in a scheduled 10-round welterweight contest. Chavez Jr., the son of Mexican boxing legend Julio Cesar Chavez, is considered a rising star in the welterweight division and looks to keep his undefeated streak alive as he continues his climb in the division. Strode, a tough, hard-hitting contender faces his toughest test yet in Chavez, Jr. A win for either fighter will help take them one step closer to the top of the deeply talented welterweight division.

HBO has always had great boxing and excellent shows and I have always thought they were worth the money.To me their only drawback is Larry Merchant,who I don't think is a great commentator. Other than him kudos to HBO.

i was about to drop
SHO and HBO but because i only have it for the fights. but damm they sometimes put on some great fights.

Being a boxing fan I couldnt live without them.

I know they are not cheap but I think for direct TV I pay around$23 or $24 for the 2. I think you get about 5 or 6 of each.

Showtime has the 1st Sat of the month show every month & shobox at least once a month.

HBO has about 2 shows a month counting BAD.

Sor for 3 or 4 shows amonth I think it is worth it.

for you i works out
but like i said the only thing i watch on SHO and HBO is boxing and it hurts to pay that much for 2-4 fight shows a month.
BTW i have cable and its about $15 a month for the 2 net works and 6 channels of each.
