Showtime Boxing just announced a slew of big fights that it will broadcast in the coming months.
Stephen Espinoza, the executive vice president and general manager of Showtime Sports recently announced that Showtime will broadcast five different cards on five separate nights, some of which will feature world title unification bouts. All of these fights will be aired on free television.
"No other network is delivering high-quality competitive fights — without relying on (pay-per-view) — as consistently as Showtime," Espinoza said. "No other network is as committed to driving the sport forward. 'Showtime Championship Boxing' is giving subscribers the best that boxing has to offer."
The following Showtime Boxing dates and their respective main events are as follows:
December 10 will have a world title doubleheader where Jesus Cuellar and Abner Mares will fight for Cuellar's WBA featherweight title. The co-main event will feature IBF junior middleweight titleholder Jermall Charlo defending his belt against Julian Williams.
January 14 will be a title unification bout between super middleweight champions Badou Jack and James DeGale. ESPN is reporting that the fight will take place in the United States and not in Jack's native England.
January 28 will feature the much anticipated rematch between Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz for Frampton's WBA featherweight championship.
February 11 will host Adrien Broner's next fight against Adrian Granados in Broner's first fight since April. The fight will be contested at junior welterweight and a site for the fight has not been determined.
March 4 will be another title unification fight. This time, it will be welterweight champions Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia squaring off against each other. Garcia will first face Samuel Vargas in a tuneup fight on November 12.
