Fight Network to launch in United States on November 1st

Fight Network is a 24/7 combat sports television station based out of Canada that will soon expand to US television waves.

Per boxing analyst and commentator Corey Erdman, Fight Network will launch in the United States the 1st of November. Based out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the U.S. launch of FN precedes it's airing of Humberto Soto vs Jose Lopez on Nov. 10 in Mexico. Soto-Lopez is only a taste of the what FN will distribute from Golden Boy in the future as they have purchased rights to "Golden Boy Classics" and Golden Boy's Fox Deportes shows. FN will also have access to the libraries of InterBox, Groupe Yvon Michel, and Banner Promotions, all Hennessey Sports cards, all CES Boxing events, and a variety of Canadian cards not seen anywhere else.

Before going after United States cable companies to host their channel, FN will be exclusively streamed online courtesy of NeuLion, an Internet Protocol television company headquartered in Plainview, New York, USA. In Canada FN is available on every cable provider and has about 2 million subscribers. The network is known for airing attractive fights in the past that were unavailable on American airwaves such as Dmitry Pirog vs Nobuhiro Ishida and Kell Brook vs Carson Jones.

Mr. Erdman will also be hosting a weekly boxing news show for the network, yet to be titled officially.
