Enough with all the domestic business, Al Haymon is now moving into international markets with his PBC series. BoxNation has just come to an agreement with the influential figure to televise the first three PBC shows in the U.K. The agreement comes just in time as they'll be airing the kickoff show this weekend, featuring Thurman-Guerrero and Broner-Molina.

In addition, they will also be televising the Berto-Lopez card and the Porter-Garcia on March 13th, as well as the Danny Garcia-Lamont Peterson bout on April 11th. Managing Director of BoxNation, Jim McMunn, had this to say about the agreement between BoxNation and PBC:

"BoxNation continuously looks to deliver the very best fights out there for our viewers. This agreement once again demonstrates our commitment to boxing and our aim of airing the very best shows, both domestically and internationally, to our loyal subscribers. These are three thrilling fight cards and we're delighted UK fans will be able to watch them live and exclusive on BoxNation."

These Haymon fighters will be getting plenty of exposure during this new series and time will tell if it's sufficient to make genuine stars out of some of them, while bringing the sport of boxing back into the mainstream. Let's hope for the best.
