Saul Alvarez-Matthew Hatton Scores Big HBO Rating

By Rick Reeno

The top players at HBO are very pleased with last Saturday's junior middleweight contest between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Matthew "Magic" Hatton. Alvarez won the vacant WBC 154-pound title with a twelve round unanimous decision at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. While Alvarez was landing punches in the ring, he was also landing a lot of HBO viewers.

BoxingScene.com was advised that Alvarez-Hatton was the most watched "Boxing After Dark" main event in two years. The HBO audience of 1.4 million was the most for a "Boxing After Dark" main event since James Kirkland vs. Joel Julio, which delivered 1.4 million viewers on March 7, 2009.
