Al Haymon isn’t done getting boxing on non-premium TV, as the powerful manager has inked a deal with Spike TV to bring his Premium Boxing Champions series to the network.
This of course, is the same series that Haymon is bringing to NBC and will debut on Spike TV on March 13 (9 p.m. ET/PT) with a doubleheader featuring Andre Berto against Josesito Lopez and Shawn Porter vs. Roberto Garcia.
â€śWe share the vision of the Premier Boxing Champions series to put the fighters first,â€ť said Kevin Kay, President, Spike TV. â€śThe fighters are the stars, and we will give them a platform to demonstrate why they are among greatest and most exciting athletes in the world.â€ť
Spikeâ€™s on-air team will be announced at a later date.
