    Spike TV: Still Talking With Haymon, 'Very Satisfied' With PBC Fights

    By Edward Chaykovsky

    Last week, it was announced that Spike TV would not extend its two-year contract with Premier Boxing Champions.

    The network is planning to position their financial resources on acquiring more programming from the UFC's main competitor, mixed martial arts company Bellator. The network's decision is no surprise - because Bellator and Spike are owned by the same company, Viacom.

    The PBC series, which made it's debut back in 2015, was created and pushed by powerful boxing adviser Al Haymon. The idea, back by a $400 million hedge fund, gave Haymon the financial resources to establish TV deals and provide programming to NBC, CBS, Spike TV, Fox, Fox Sports 1, Bounce TV, Showtime and ESPN.

    While PBC got off to a rapid start in 2015, with up to three shows in a single week during certain periods, the number of PBC shows on most of the previously mentioned networks has dwindled to very low numbers. Most of the brand's biggest matches, at least in the last year, have been placed on Showtime or CBS.

    According to David Schwarz of Spike, they are not done with boxing and not done with the PBC brand - but they are going to be more selective with the programming they purchase.

    “We’re tremendously committed to Bellator, which is having its best year ever,” Schwarz told The New York Post. “But we want to make it clear we’re still talking to Al, and we were very satisfied with the fights from PBC. If the right situation and right fight comes up, we’re all ears."

    A PBC spokesman told the paper that Spike's decision should not viewed as a sign of trouble for the PBC brand.

    “We continue to have a good relationship with all our broadcast partners as we determine what fights work best for all parties involved,” the spokesman said.

    Showtime to Air Joshua-Klitschko Live; HBO Gets Delayed Telecast

    By Keith Idec

    Showtime announced a considerable boxing victory over HBO on Monday.

    After a long battle between the premium-cable rivals, Showtime essentially revealed it won a bidding war with HBO to secure the U.S. rights to televise the Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko heavyweight title fight live April 29 from a sold-out Wembley Stadium in London. HBO will air a same-day replay of the Joshua-Klitschko fight April 29.

    Showtime’s broadcast is scheduled to start at 4:15 p.m. ET and 1:15 p.m. PT on April 29. HBO’s re-broadcast will begin at 10:45 p.m. ET/PT.

    Though it wasn’t mentioned in the announcement, it is believed that as part of the agreement HBO would have the U.S. broadcast rights to televise a Joshua-Klitschko rematch live. Should a rematch take place, Showtime would broadcast a same-day replay.


    “I'm extremely happy and thankful that our respective U.S. TV partners Showtime and HBO reached an agreement,” said Bernd Boente, Managing Director of Klitschko Management Group. “This happened before in the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao and the Lewis vs. Tyson fights and shows you the magnitude of our event at Wembley Stadium on April 29.”

    "I'm delighted to announce this historic deal that will see Britain's biggest ever fight shown on both HBO and SHOWTIME in the U.S.,” said Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport. “It takes a special fight to break down barriers and boundaries but also networks and executives who believe in working with the best interest of fight fans in mind. With the obstacles in place it would have been any easy resolution to not air the fight in the States but I want to thank HBO and Showtime for their perseverance and allowing America to see one hell of a fight at our national stadium in front on 90,000 passionate fans. Joshua vs. Klitschko is a fight for the ages and we look forward to the show!"

    "We are thrilled to be delivering Joshua vs. Klitschko to the U.S. audience live on SHOWTIME,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports. “On the afternoon of April 29, U.S. sports fans will be able to tune in to SHOWTIME to join a record-breaking crowd of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium and a worldwide television audience in witnessing an event that represents not only the contesting of the heavyweight world championship, but potentially the changing of the guard in the most influential division in boxing. We are proud to be Anthony Joshua’s exclusive U.S. television partner as he attempts to establish his legacy against the legendary Wladimir Klitschko, live on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING, as Showtime continues its unrivaled commitment to the sport."

    Said Peter Nelson, executive vice president, HBO Sports: "Both promoters and both networks have found a solution that enables boxing fans in the U.S. to watch the world heavyweight championship. This agreement ensures that our subscribers have access to same-day primetime coverage of the fight. It will mark Wladimir Klitschko’s 22nd appearance on HBO and the first for Anthony Joshua.”

    Showtime has a multi-fight agreement with England’s Joshua (18-0, 18 KOs), but that deal doesn’t guarantee Showtime the U.S. rights to broadcast a fight against Ukraine’s Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs).

    HBO has televised 21 Klitschko fights since July 2000, but passed on broadcasting several of the former champion’s less attractive title defenses in recent years. HBO has, however, aired each of the 41-year-old Klitschko’s last three fights – his loss to Tyson Fury in November 2015, as well as his wins against Bryant Jennings in April 2015 and Kubrat Pulev in November 2014.

    The long-awaited announcement Friday confirmed several weeks’ worth of industry-wide speculation that Showtime would offer the live telecast of boxing’s biggest heavyweight title fight since Lennox Lewis-Mike Tyson in June 2002. Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza told a group of reporters two weeks ago in New York that he was confident Showtime would televise Joshua-Klitschko live.

    The joint announcement was delayed due to minor disagreements over what were perceived as competitive advantages for one network or the other.

    No matter when it was announced, this will be viewed as a win for Showtime in its uphill battle against HBO in the business of broadcasting boxing.

    Showtime has narrowed the gap between the networks recently by consistently televising competitive, entertaining fights on a more frequent basis, but HBO’s boxing programming still typically produces higher ratings. HBO has about 32 million subscribers in the United States, approximately eight million more than Showtime.


    Sky Sports Box Office will air Joshua-Klitschko live on pay-per-view in the United Kingdom. Approximately 90,000 tickets have been sold for their April 29 fight at Wembley Stadium.

    Showtime Reveals Schedule of Shows For Next Eight Weeks

    NEW YORK – SHOWTIME Sports has unveiled the network’s complete spring 2017 boxing schedule following today’s earlier announcement that the heavyweight boxing event of the year will be televised live on SHOWTIME. The stacked lineup includes seven world championship fights across eight live boxing telecasts over an eight-week span.

    On Saturday, April 29, Anthony Joshua will face Wladimir Klitschko in the most significant heavyweight world championship fight in more than a decade. The event will air live on SHOWTIME at 4:15 p.m. ET/1:15 p.m. PT from a sold-out Wembley Stadium, where a record crowd of more than 90,000 spectators is expected.

    Also announced today, SHOWTIME and Premier Boxing Champions will present the rematch between WBC Light Heavyweight Champion Adonis Stevenson and Andrzej Fonfara on Saturday, June 3. This bout is an encore of a 2014 action-packed fight in which Stevenson edged Fonfara to defend his 175-pound crown.

    The SHOWTIME boxing lineup also includes two significant welterweight bouts with world title implications: Andre Berto vs. Shawn Porter (April 22) and Kell Brook vs. Errol Spence Jr. (May 27). Both events are presented in association with Premier Boxing Champions. The April 22 Berto vs. Porter event will feature an anticipated 154-pound world title fight between Jermell Charlo and Charles Hatley as well as world champion Amanda Serrano attempting to become the first woman—and first fighter of Puerto Rican decent—to win a world title in five different weight classes.

    On Saturday, May 20, SHOWTIME will present a unique twin-bill of world championship fights. First, boxing’s hottest young star, newly minted world champion Gervonta Davis, will make his first world title defense against Liam Walsh from London. Later that evening, featherweight world champion Gary Russell Jr. and former world champion Andre Dirrell will be featured in separate bouts. Start times for both live telecasts are to be determined.

    In all, SHOWTIME Sports will present one live SHOWTIME BOXING INTERNATIONAL telecast, one live ShoBox: The New Generation telecast, and five SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecasts, all free to network subscribers. Plus, SHOWTIME is in the early stages of planning for the return of four-division world champion Adrien Broner and undefeated star Mikey Garcia in separate events this summer.

    The spring lineup complements the network’s robust 2017 boxing schedule. In the first 10 weeks of the year, SHOWTIME Sports presented eight world championship fights, including two world title unification bouts (Jack vs. DeGale and Thurman vs. Garcia, SHOWTIME Boxing on CBS), two world title rematches (Frampton vs. Santa Cruz II and Linares vs. Crolla II), the live-stream of the first-ever boxing event on Twitter (Broner vs. Granados), the resurgence of women’s boxing (Serrano vs. Rivas) and the first women’s boxing main event in premium television history (Shields vs. Szabados).

    “SHOWTIME continues its unrivaled commitment to the sport. There simply is no other network in boxing delivering world-class events on a consistent basis,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President & General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports.

    “Our 2017 schedule already includes some 17 live boxing telecasts, 15 world championship fights, with the top-rated fighters squaring off in boxing’s deepest weight divisions. We continue to break the glass ceiling on women’s boxing, deliver the biggest bouts from overseas and see champions take on champions to unify divisions. We are proud to be re-shaping the boxing landscape both in and out of the ring.”


    See below for the SHOWTIME boxing spring calendar. This is the network’s third major boxing schedule announcement of the past 13 months.

    Salido Adviser: Tired of Lomachenko Loss Excuses, Let's Rematch!

    By Miguel Rivera

    Former two-division world champion Orlando Salido, 36-years-old, is hoping to get a rematch with Vasyl Lomachenko by the end of the year.

    As BoxingScene.com reported last week, Salido is going to break a near one year layoff on May 27 in Mexico, in a ten round bout against Amphon Suriyo.

    Salido (43-13-4, 30 KOs) has been out of the ring since going to a twelve round draw in a wild war with then WBC world champion Francisco Vargas in June 2016.

    Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KOs), who holds the WBO super featherweight title, suffered his first and only pro defeat to Salido in March of 2014 at the Alamodome of San Antonio.

    After the fight, which had the vacant WBO featherweight crown at stake, Lomachenko and his handlers complained that Salido was never penalized for numerous low blows, and they also brought up the issue of Salido failing to make weight for the contest.

    "The idea is to shake off the rust against Suriyo and if all goes well, fight against Vasyl Lomachenko later in the year and sort things out once and for all with that fight," said Salido's adviser Sean Gibbons to ESPN Deportes.

    "Before he can fight against Lomachenko, he needs to fight. Orlando has not had a fight back home in a few years, so the timing was right to have a fight at home. We think the timing is right for the fight against Lomachenko. Our goal is to fight May 27, Orlando shakes off the rust and then we reach an agreement with Top Rank for a fight against Lomachenko."

    "Orlando really wants a rematch against Lomachenko. He wants it financially and also wants it for pride. He is tired of hearing about low blows, the weight, the referee ... No more excuses. Everybody says that Lomachenko is a different fighter now, but Orlando feels that even if Lomachenko has improved he has the right plan to beat him again."

    Berto can crack too i dont think its out of the realm of possibilities that berto wins this fight. doe she probably not.. there isnt much light between his style and Berto... Shawn got the better gas tank.. I think Berto cracks harder. Andre is pretty dumb in the ring though.. but they both got that wild style
