October 3, 2008 - HBO Sports is presenting a thirty-minute special analyzing the upcoming HBO Pay-Per-View showdown between two of boxing’s most accomplished fighters: Kelly Pavlik and Bernard Hopkins. Their intriguing ring battle is set for Saturday, Oct. 18 in Atlantic City at Boardwalk Hall. The special, “COUNTDOWN TO PAVLIK-HOPKINS,” which will feature fighter profiles, expert analysis and forecasts for the light heavyweight matchup, will premiere on the main service on Saturday, Oct. 11 at 12:00 midnight ET/PT..

Hopkins (48-5-1, 32 KOs), a Philadelphia native, is destined for the Hall of Fame and is looking to cement his legacy with a win over the man who has followed in his footprint to become the world’s dominant middleweight performer. Pavlik (34-0, 30 KOs) had a meteoric rise in 2007 and the Youngstown, Ohio native has not slowed down the pace in 2008.
