Spike TV to Reair Byrd-Golota Bout


The controversial April 17 heavyweight-championship bout between Chris Byrd and Andrew Golota will be featured on Spike TV’s Knockout, set to air Friday, April 30 at 9 p.m. (EST/PST).

Besides another look at the fight, which resulted in a controversial draw, Knockout will feature an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at boxing through the eyes of promoter Don King.

Spike TV’s first heavyweight-boxing event will also feature the bout from earlier April 17, in which World Boxing Association heavyweight champ John Ruiz scored a technical knockout over challenger Fres Oquendo in round 11.
