Curt Menefee will be back on ShoBox: The Next Generation.

Menefee, who has called ShoBox events in the past, will replace Showtime's veteran play-by-play man Nick Charles, who stepped down to continue his fight against cancer.

Menefee will join Showtime's team of Steve Farhood and Antonio Tarver.

“Having done a couple of events with Steve and Antonio last season, this feels almost like a family reunion,” Menefee said in a statement.  “That's what the SHOWTIME folks have quickly become to me, family."

In another announcement, beginning May 14, all ShoBox will be broadcast in HD.

“By delivering our ShoBox fights in HD, we’re providing our fans with the best visual quality to enjoy our competitive matchups,” said Gordon Hall, ShoBox executive producer.
