After 20 years the HBO Boxing empire chose to refresh their iconic opening sequence. Welcome to Don King's interlaced ghost ship. The new open creates a collision between the dark hardships of training with the electric burlesque of fight night. Interspersed are the ghosts of great fights past, wrapped up and treated in an homage to great moments spent 'round the tube.
