HBO Sports’ flagship boxing series presents an all-action affair when WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING: ERIK MORALES VS. DANNY GARCIA AND JAMES KIRKLAND VS. CARLOS MOLINA is seen live SATURDAY, MARCH 24 at 10:00 p.m. (ET)/7:00 p.m. (PT), from Reliant Arena in Houston, exclusively on HBO. The HBO Sports team of Jim Lampley, Max Kellerman and Emanuel Steward will call all the action, which will be available in HDTV, closed-captioned for the hearing impaired and presented in Spanish on HBO Latino.

The 12-round main event showcases all-time Mexican great Erik Morales (52-7, 36 KOs) defending his super lightweight title against unbeaten 23-year-old Philadelphia native Danny Garcia (22-0, 14 KOs). Morales, 35, had a strong 2011 and looks to add to his Hall of Fame-caliber resume this year.

In the opening bout, one of boxing’s most compelling fighters makes his 2012 debut as Austin resident James Kirkland (30-1, 27 KOs) squares off with Chicago’s Carlos Molina (19-4-2, 6 KOs) in a 12-round junior middleweight bout. Kirkland, 27, fired up the boxing world last month with a sixth-round KO of Alfredo Angulo in one of the year’s top slugfests. The 28-year-old Molina, a native of Patxcuaro, Mexico, has displayed formidable skills in battling Erislandy Lara to a draw and scoring a win over Kermit Cintron.

The “2 Days” feature on James Kirkland is available on HBO GO®, HBO ON DEMAND® and HBO.com.
