HBO Sports will produce an all-new installment of the acclaimed Legendary Nights boxing documentary series, celebrating the most memorable fights in the network’s 40 years of presenting the sweet science. The one hour show will feature a retrospective on the three-fight slugfest between Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward.
“With June 2013 marking the tenth anniversary of the third fight of the landmark Gatti vs. Ward trilogy, we believe now is the ideal moment to revisit this classic rivalry,” says Ken Hershman, president of HBO Sports. “This retrospective will offer new perspectives and deliver revealing insights on the two ring warriors who produced this all-time great moment in boxing history. We plan to present the special on a night with a major fight on HBO, ensuring a memorable night of boxing programming.”
