Antonio Tarver Dedicates Green Bout To Nick Charles

LOS ANGELES - Antonio Tarver’s next bout, against Danny Green, will be dedicated to Nick Charles, his former colleague at SHOWTIME Sports. Charles passed away on Saturday, June 25, after a long and inspirational fight against cancer.

Charles was the first sports anchor for CNN in 1980. He co-hosted CNN Sports Tonight with Fred Hickman and later hosted his own program, Page One with Nick Charles, until leaving the network in 2001. Beginning in 2001, Charles hosted SHOWTIME’s ShoBox: The New Generation.

“My upcoming fight against Danny Green on July 20th in Sydney, Australia will be dedicated to my good friend Nick Charles,” said Tarver. “He fought a courageous battle and my prayers go out to his family. Nick was a class act to everyone who knew him. His motto in life was to love what you are doing. He was a winner.”
