From all of us at SHOWTIME Sports on the passing of Nick Charles:
For nearly 10 years Nick Charles served this network as host of the popular boxing series ShoBox: The New Generation. Nick infused every telecast with genuine intrigue and unfailing enthusiasm whether it take place at a parking lot in North Dakota or a historic boxing club in London. His unique ability as a storyteller also allowed viewers to connect with the athletes themselves, as he helped to dramatize what was at stake for the fighters that night and beyond. As ShoBox prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary, SHOWTIME is preparing a special tribute to one of boxing’s most passionate fans—Nick Charles. He will be missed, but never forgotten by the men and women who televise ShoBox and the many viewers who have been entertained and enlightened by Nick’s insight over the years. To mention the ShoBox series is to remember a man who helped define it.
