Dmitry Bivol is regarded as one of the best up-and-coming talents in the light heavyweight division. Now, he makes his first 175-pound title defense, as well as his HBO debut, when HBO BOXING AFTER DARK: DMITRY BIVOL VS. TRENT BROADHURST is seen SATURDAY, NOV. 4 at 5:45 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT) from Monaco’s Salle Medecin Monte Carlo, followed by a primetime replay that same evening at 9:45 p.m. (ET/PT). The HBO Sports team 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 fight will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.
Russia’s Dmitry Bivol (11-0, 9 KOs) meets Australia’s Trent Broadhurst (20-1, 12 KOs) in a scheduled 12-round title bout. Boasting a knockout-to-win ratio above 80%, the dangerous Bivol, 26, is on a quest for worldwide recognition and looks to fast-track his way in the talent-rich light heavyweight division. Broadhurst, 29, has compiled a 13-fight winning streak since absorbing his first loss in 2011 and hopes to spring a major upset.
The Monte Carlo telecast continues HBO’s initiative of presenting intriguing fights from across the Atlantic in a late-Saturday afternoon time slot. In the past three years, HBO Boxing has also visited London, Yekaterinburg, Russia, Hamburg and Dusseldorf.
