HBO SPORTS EXCLUSIVE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BOXIN DONALD CURRY VS. MILTON McCRORY DECEMBER 6 m n Tonight, two undefeated champions clash for the unified welterweight title. Not since Sugar Ray Leonard has one man worn both welterweight crowns. And not since Sugar Ray have we seen a boxer the likes of Donald Curry, a superb technician in the ring. But the hard-hitting McCrory is no slouch. Packing a lethal left jab and a powerful right, he won his first 16 fights by KOs. Scheduled for 15 rounds, this fight should be a beauty. December 6 What’s it like to become suddenly down and out in our land of plenty? This powerful documentary travels across America interviewing farmers facing foreclosure, unemployed factory workers, divorced mothers and people in urban areas who have unexpectedly become homeless.
