African-American broadcaster Bounce TV has signed as the fourth partner of the new Premier Boxing Champions series operated by manager and adviser Al Haymon.
Bounce TV has agreed a multi-year rights deal which will include PBC The Next Round – a monthly series featuring two hours of live boxing focusing on the future stars of the sport. The series will premiere on Bounce TV in July.
Bounce TV co-founder Martin Luther King III said: “This series provides future stars of boxing frequent nationwide exposure on over-the-air television, and will benefit the African-American audience who I believe miss watching this great sport on free TV.”
Bounce TV joins the NBC and CBS networks, along with pay-television broadcaster Spike TV, as television partners for the Premier Boxing Champions series. Haymon is also a co-founder of Bounce TV.
