It’s truly an end of an era over at HBO. On Thursday afternoon, HBO announced that after December they will no longer cover boxing.
HBO has covered 1,111 fights in its 45 years of boxing broadcasting.
Upon investigation, the network has no boxing coverage scheduled beyond the middleweight title fight between Daniel Jacobs and Sergiy Derevyanchenko at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 27th. This event plans to close out coverage at the end of 2018.
