Boxing On ESPN When?



Boxing On ESPN When?

Dan Rafael, ESPN's boxing big gun, Tweeted out some info on the state of boxing on ESPN, which signed on last year with Premier Boxing Champions, allowing PBC to place their fights on the ESPN platform, in exchange for about $10 million.


January to April to June, he Tweeted.

I poked PBC's Tim Smith to see if he could add or clarify. “As far as I know the PBC on ESPN shows were always supposed to start up in July,” he told NYFIGHTS. “I don't ever recall any of the shows being pushed anywhere.”

Founder/editor Michael Woods got addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the then-impregnable Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist has covered the sport since for ESPN The Magazine,, Bad Left Hook and RING. His journalism career started with NY Newsday in 1999. Michael Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and for Facebook Fightnight Live, since 2017.
