AT&T to broadcast Mexican boxing series in U.S.

AT&T is in the boxing business.

Gilberto Keb Baas’ junior flyweight title defense against Adrian Hernandez on Saturday in Texcoco, Mexico can be seen in the United States exclusively on AT&T, which will deliver the “Sabados De Corona” series on three screens to AT&T U-Verse members.

This and future cards will be on U-verse TV, U-verse Online at www.att.net/boxeo and, for subscribers to the U-verse Live TV mobile application, on qualifying mobile phones.

The broadcast on Saturday begins at 6:30 p.m. PT / 9:30 p.m. ET.

The card will be televised on Televisa in Mexico.

The Keb Baas-Hernandez fight is a rematch of their 2008 meeting, which Hernandez won by fourth-round knockout.

Keb Baas (35-20-4, 22 knockouts) outpointed Omar Nino to win the WBC title in November and has successfully defended once, stopping Jose Antonio Aguirre in his last fight. THE RING’s No. 1-rated 108-pounder is undefeated in his last eight fights.

Hernandez (20-1-1, 12 KOs) has won seven in a row since he was stopped by Oscar Ibarra in 2008. He will be fighting for a major title for the first time.

In the co-featured bout, prospect Marco Antonio Periban (12-0, 9 KOs) of Mexico will face Jose Alberto Clavero (30-7-1, 15 KOs) of Argentina in a scheduled 10-round super middleweight bout.
