WHAT HAPPENED TO PBC?

 

What has happened to Premier Boxing Champions?

 

After a busy launch on multiple networks last year, Premier Boxing Champions has just one card scheduled as of now for the remainder of 2016

By Dan Rafael
ESPN Senior Writer

 

When Al Haymon's series began with massive hype in March 2015, PBC rolled out one fight card after another on numerous networks as part of its extensive time buy. It was almost impossible to keep up with all the fight announcements and the networks they were on -- NBC, CBS, ESPN, NBCSN, Spike, Bounce TV, Fox, FS1. Did I miss any?

BELLEW TO DEFEND AGAINST FLORES

Time for Liverpool's Tony Bellew, to defend his WBC cruiserweight crown.  Tony won green and gold supreme, with  a powerful KO over Ilunga Makabu in May,  'The Bomber's  back, and this time it's at the Echo Arena in Liverpool,  on October 15th.   His rival is BJ Flores from the USA, with plenty of experience in around the ring.  
“We finally settled the deal with B.J. Flores. I  believe he deserves a chance and we're fully expecting him to arrive in top condition, to offer a really great show,” Bellew commented to Sky Sports News.   Flores commented: “I feel very pleased with this opportunity of being World Boxing Council Champion. I will strive 100% in order to be the new world champion." 

PBC OFF OF NBC FOR THE REMAINER OF 2016

A worrying piece of news coming out of ESPN has revealed that major US TV network NBC will not be putting on any more PBC boxing events for the remainder of 2016.

This is particularly an adverse bit of news as anyone at all connected with the entertainment ratings or advertising business in any shape or form will tell you, these next few months before now and Christmas are the peak months where advertisers spend.
That’s the thing though with PBC in the first place, networks were not spending and were given content for free in time buy deals in a bid to bring boxing back to the masses on network television long-term.
There’s a lot of speculation out there at the moment that Premier Boxing Champions fronted by influential global boxing manager and adviser Alan Haymon, could be on it’s last legs, but if you’re a true boxing fan – lets hope that’s not the case.
