FOX Sports is the latest entity to step into the ring to distribute Premier Boxing Champions live fights beginning in September.
Fox Sport 1 will distribute 21 PBC-promoted fight cards through June as part of its Toe-To-Toe Tuesdays boxing series, the company said. The series will launch Sept. 8 with a card featuring welterweights Austin Trout against Joey Hernandez and a junior featherweight fight between Jorge Lara and Jesus Rojas.
“We’ve been invested in boxing as a cornerstone property since launching FOX Sports 1,” says Nathanson. “Premier Boxing Champions delivers high-profile, high-quality programing that is breaking viewership records in the boxing space. There is no question that this deal makes FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes true destinations for boxing fans.”
FS1 will also air a Sept. 15 bout between undefeated welterweight Sammy Vasquez and Jose Lopez; a Sept. 22 fight card featuring super welterweight bout between Julian Williams and Luciano Cuello super welterweight battle and a Sept. 29 fight between super featherweight champion Javier Fortuna and Carlos Velazquez.
