Nick Charles, defiantly battling cancer, will call the opening fight on HBO's Boxing After Dark card this weekend in Atlantic City.
"We are not doing it for press; just a way of saluting Nick for all his contributions to the sweet science," a contact over at HBO wrote in an email.
There will be a reunion of sorts because Nick's longtime Showtime broadcast partner, Steve Farhood, will be on site for the international call of the card.
The show starts at 9:45. Yuriorkis Gamboa defends featherweight title against Jorge Solis in the main event.
