Malignaggi vs. Broner: Bernard Hopkins Added To Broadcast

NEW YORK – Future Hall of Famer and current IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion Bernard Hopkins will be a guest commentator on this Saturday’s live SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® telecast (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Boxing’s ageless wonder, Hopkins will serve as an expert analyst joining host Brian Kenny, announcers Mauro Ranallo (blow-by-blow) and Al Bernstein (expert analyst) and ringside reporter Jim Gray.

The legendary, 48-year-old Hopkins will add his insight from the SHOWTIME seat usually occupied by Paulie Malignaggi, who will relocate from the ring apron to the inside of the ring on Saturday evening as he defends his WBA Welterweight World Championship against undefeated current WBC Lightweight and Two-Division World Champion Adrien Broner in what will be a heated, highly-charged 12-round main event.
