Middleweight beltholder Peter Quillin could soon defend his WBO title against promotional stablemate Danny Jacobs.
HBO makes Lederman an analyst Saturday
Harold Lederman, the longtime "unofficial official" of HBO Sports, will step out of his usual fight scoring role and co-commentate on the Adrien Broner-Jason Litzau Boxing After Dark opener on Saturday.
HBO's longtime "unofficial ringside judge," Harold Lederman, finally has his dream gig: He'll be promoted to the "analyst" position Saturday night for Saturday night's opening fight between undefeated Adrien Broner and Jason Litzau, part of HBO Boxing After Dark.
Lederman, a 25-year-veteran of HBO broadcasts as the on-air scorer, will team with veteran blow-by-blow commentator Bob Papa for the 10-rounder between Broner and Litzau.
The decision was made after Roy Jones Jr., the lead analyst, was scratched from the Litzau-Broner bout because his promotional company has a relationship with Litzau.
Jones will, however, call the main event of the evening between Canelo Alvarez and Ryan Rhodes, with Lederman returning to his usual post.
