Plus, Highlights Of 2012 British Olympic Bronze Medalist Anthony Ogogo Making His Professional Debut

NEW YORK (April 4, 2013) – British superstar and former Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Amir “King” Khan’s first fight in England in nearly two years against former World Champion Julio “The Kidd” Diaz will be televised on SHOWTIME® on Saturday, April 27, immediately following the SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING event featuring Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Danny “Swift” Garcia against former Four-Time and Two-Division World Champion Zab “Super” Judah.

Khan vs. Diaz, a 12-round 143-pound catch-weight bout, will emanate from Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, England, and air on tape delay on SHOWTIME BOXING: Special Edition. Highlights of 2012 British Olympic Bronze Medalist Anthony Ogogo’s professional debut will also be shown during the telecast.

Capping an exciting night of boxing will be a replay of ALL ACCESS: Mayweather vs. Guerrero, Episode 3 on SHOWTIME that will immediately follow the SHOWTIME BOXING: Special Edition.

Preceding the scrap between Bolton, England’s Khan (27-3, 19 KO’s) and Diaz (40-7-1, 29 KO’s), of Coachella, Calif., SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING will feature a pair of world title fights that will be televised live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT) from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Undefeated WBO Middleweight World Champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (28-0, 20 KO’s), of New York, will defend against hard-hitting Fernando Guerrero (25-1, 19 KO’s), of Salisbury, Md., and in the main event, unbeaten Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Danny “Swift” Garcia (25-0, 16 KO’s) will risk his world title belts against former Four-Time and Two-Division World Champion Zab “Super” Judah (42-7, 29 KO’s), of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Khan will be making his second consecutive appearance on SHOWTIME. Last Dec. 15, he captured the vacant WBC Silver Super Lightweight Championship with a dominant 10th-round TKO over previously undefeated Carlos Molina in Los Angeles.

Anthony Ogogo is a former Junior Olympic Champion, Junior World Champion and Commonwealth Games Silver Medalist. In London this past summer, Ogogo beat representatives from the Dominican Republic, Ukraine and Germany to win a Bronze Medal, thrilling his fans from throughout the United Kingdom.
