HOBOKEN, N.J. (February 13, 2009) – Integrated Sports will distribute a world-class pay-per-view card, headlined by Amir Khan versus "The Baby Faced Assassin" Marco Antonio Barrera, Saturday, March 14 live from The M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, United Kingdom.
Integrated Sports is distributing three 12-round championship bouts featured on the "Khan-Barrera" card, presented by Frank Warren, in North America for live viewing at 4 PM/ET – 1 PM/PT on cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, TVN, DirecTV and Dish Network in the United States, as well as Viewer’s Choice and Bell TV in Canada, for a suggested retail price of only $24.95.
Khan (19-1, 15 KOs), 2004 Olympic silver medallist, defends his WBA International lightweight title against seven-time world champion Barrera (65-6, 42 KOs) in the 12-round main event. The two other PPV fights will be former WBO cruiserweight title-holder Enzo Maccarinelli (29-2, 22 KOs) against NABO champ Ola "Kryptonite" Afolabi (13-1-3, 5 KOs) for the WBO cruiserweight championship, while WBO super middleweight champion Nicky "Cookie" Cook (29-1, 16 KOs) defends his title belt against undefeated No. 1 contender Roman "Rocky" Martinez (21-0-1, 12 KOs).
Ola Afolabi on right now. I find it extremely fitting that Shannon Briggs is commentating, because it's the same kind of frustration. You watch him and know he has some talent, but his complete and utter lack of stamina and will to actually throw punches makes me want to throw my TV out the window.
