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.”
