Boxing TV Launches with Vast Classic Library and Weekly Live Events
Only FAST Channel Dedicated Exclusively to Boxing
CHESHIRE, CT — Imagine a destination where Mike Tyson, Riddick Bowe, Evander Holyfield, George Foreman, Lennox Lewis and the best up and comer boxers of this generation share a stage. Look no further with this week’s launch of Boxing TV, the place where boxing fans both young and old can get their fill of “The Sweet Science” 24 hours per day, seven days a week.
With a vast library of 1200 events from the most memorable bouts of all time, Boxing TV melds the past’s greats with today’s most promising stars. Remember when Lewis knocked out Tyson in 2002? How about when Foreman captured the heavyweight title after flooring Michael Moorer? Boxing TV has all of the best fights and will feature at least one live event each week featuring “Tomorrow’s Stars Today.”
A partnership among Triple-B Media, Main Events and Payne Boxing, Boxing TV’s goal is to become the free, go-to destination for everything boxing, including classic bouts, live events and news and information programming. At launch, Boxing TV will be available on Local Now, Distro TV, SPORTS.TV, SelectTV and on Triple-B’s Streamstak platform at www.watchboxing.tv.
“With the launch of Boxing TV, our hope is to feature the magic and amazing storylines of boxing, its athletes and amazing fans,” said Anthony Bailey, Managing Director for Triple-B Media. “Boxing has been a proven dedicated sport on television for decades and now we’re happy to provide it to fans on a free, ad supported basis.”
“I have known for years that the extensive archive of great fights that has been carefully built over the four decades that Main Events has been in boxing deserved an easily accessible home where old and new fans could view and appreciate its stunning depth and breadth without having to pay a fee,” said Kathy Duva, CEO of Main Events.
“Being a boxing fan already costs too much money. I am happy to announce today that I have finally found that home. In addition, as Boxing TV grows in the years ahead, Main Events looks forward to working with Triple-B and Gardner to create many more memorable events as we build another generation of promising young stars on the Boxing TV platform.”
“We are very excited to partner with Triple-B Media and Main Events to bring around the clock boxing to sports fans all over the world,” said Gardner Payne, President of Payne Boxing. “Fans will now be able to watch some of the greatest boxers and boxing matches of all time as well as see live fights showcasing the next generation of superstars in our sport.”
