Here is an interesting bit of news. I know some of you are aware that GBP has fights on HBO Latin America, Daniel Ponce De Leon as the most recent example but now they are comitting themselves to a new boxing series on Versus.
Golden Boy Promotions is launching a new monthly boxing series that will be televised on the VERSUS cable network and streamed live on the internet, beginning on June 11, the Los Angeles-based promotional company announced with series partner AEG on Friday.
The series, called "Fight Night Club", will take place at Club Nokia at LA LIVE across the street from STAPLES Center in downtown Los Angeles and will feature up-and-coming prospects in an upscale and intimate club setting.
The monthly club show will not only be televised nationally on VERSUS (9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT) but it will be streamed live (and archived) on RingTV.com and Yahoo! Boxing, and thus be available to fight fans worldwide in an on-demand basis.
"'Fight Night Club' will focus on the future stars of this game and will show everyone just how champions are made," said Oscar de la Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions. "Some of the best fights I've ever seen have taken place at small club shows and now we have the opportunity to bring those fights to the world."
