HBO World Championship Boxing presents an all action boxing card for Thanksgiving weekend, with three live fights televised on HBO.
The Main Event of the evening is a lightweight showdown between legendary Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez vs. tough Greek-Australian slugger Michael Katsidis. Marquez is already looking onto a future fight with his long time rival Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, but Katsidis is no pushover and always comes to fight, his high pressure style combined with power punching makes Katsidis a very live underdog.
The second bout before the Main Event is the return of undefeated Haitian-American WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto, who had to withdraw from his previous fight with Shane Mosley to help the people of Haiti after they suffered a devastating earthquake that took the lives of many Haitians. Should Berto get past the hard hitting Freddy Hernandez on Saturday night, he becomes a viable opponent in the Manny Pacquiao sweepstakes should Floyd Mayweather Jr. not accept a fight with Pacquiao.
The opening bout to start off the evening is a fight between WBA super bantamweight super champion Celestino Caballero versus Jason Litzau at 130-pounds. Caballero has been trying to land fights with the two top featherweight fighters Yuriorkis Gamboa and Juan Manuel Lopez, but he believes the fighters promoters don’t want put him in with either of the undefeated champions because he is too risky an opponent.
