- Updated: June 3, 2015
Golden Boy Promotions had told us about two weeks ago that a U.S. TV deal was in the works for the middleweight title bout between David Lemieux and Hassan N’Dam, and today, the promotion has confirmed that Fox Sports 2 and Fox Deportes will televise the fight on June 20, along with two other fights to complete the tripleheader.
Lemieux (33-2, 31 KOs) will defend his IBF title against N’Dam (31-1, 18 KOs) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada, with Luis Ortiz (21-0, 18 KOs) opening up the telecast with an eight-round bout. In the co-feature, Dierry Jean (28-1, 20 KOs) will take on Jerry Belmontes (19-6, 5 KOs) in a 10-round lightweight bout.
“Being on FOX Sports is a great opportunity to use this exposure and show fans an explosive night of boxing,” said Lemieux. “I plan to put on a show and draw more people as fans to my sport.”
Added, Oscar De La Hoya, “The broadcast on FOX Sports will allow American audiences the chance to see a great fight featuring two of the most exciting stars in boxing. This match-up will deliver action-packed intensity as both Lemieux and N’Dam are hungry to move their careers forward and claim the title.”
Fox Sports 2 and Fox Deportes will air the tripleheader beginning at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
