Al Haymon, the creator of Premier Boxing Champions, has purchased time on a variety of networks for PBC events, including NBC, NBC Sports Net, ESPN, CBS, Spike TV, Bounce TV & Fox Sports 1. Now Haymon plans on added another network to PBC resume, Fox network prime time.
This will start in January, 2016, Fox will telecast three Premier Boxing Champions, events. All the cards will be featured on Saturday night starting @ 8 p.m. ET to 10 p.m. ET. The debut event is scheduled for Jan. 23 followed by shows on March 12th & July 16th. No more information is available as to who is fighting & where the events are taking place.
Al Haymon is using $450M in investor money for his PBC boxing to bring the sport back to free network TV. So far the rating have been good but are seeing a slight decline. This could be due to lack of quality competition or just declining interest.
