HBO To Air Wladimir Klitschko Fight

HBO Saturday afternoon will air live heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko’s fight against contender Kubrat Pulev, the network said.

The fight, which will be held in Germany will air live on HBO Nov. 15 at 4:45 p.m., said the network. HBO is coming off a fight card this past Saturday night in which Sergey Kovalev defeated 49-year old former light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins to unify the IBF, WBA and WBO light heavyweight championships.

HBO is also prepping for its Nov. 22 Manny Pacquiao-Chris Algieri pay-per-view fight card from Macau, China.
