    Al Haymon’s long-rumored new deal with FOX reportedly has been completed.

    According to a Ringtv.com story posted Tuesday, Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions has reached an agreement with FOX to televise PBC cards on FOX and FS1. The new commitment, which reportedly will include 10 shows on FOX and at least 12 additional FS1 telecasts, will go into effect in December.

    This deal differs from PBC’s previous agreement with FOX in that FOX will pay for all of PBC’s content. PBC previously purchased time on FOX and FS1 to air its shows, some of which featured higher-profile fights than others.

    Ringtv.com reported that FOX will grant PBC a $60 million budget to produce those cards on FOX and FS1.

    This new deal will provide PBC with another platform for an organization that represents well over 100 boxers. It also affords FOX programming in a combat sport after the network lost its rights to UFC’s non-pay-per-view events earlier this year to ESPN.

    It’s the second broadcast agreement PBC has announced in less than a week.

    Showtime announced Thursday that the premium-cable network has struck a new three-year deal with PBC to produce monthly “Showtime Championship Boxing” telecasts.

    Showtime regularly televises fights that exclusively feature PBC boxers, including WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, welterweight champions Errol Spence Jr. and Keith Thurman, four-division champion Mikey Garcia, former four-division champion Adrien Broner and the Charlo twins, Jermall and Jermell. Showtime will air an intriguing main event Saturday night that’ll match former welterweight champions Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter in a 12-round fight for the vacant WBC welterweight title at Barclays Center in Brooklyn (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT).

    PBC now has 2 big TV contracts plus the occasional Blunce tv cards. Hearn has been having trouble luring Haymon’s Guys to his Dazn platform, now it seems that’s going to be more difficult. Having 2 monsters like Showtime and fox backing PBC.

    “Between Showtime and Fox, PBC will have a bigger pool of budget money than any other promoter in boxing, including Eddie Hearn with DAZN,” an industry source who was not authorized to speak publicly told The Ring.

    It was only last week that Showtime announced a new three-year deal with PBC, Haymon’s stable of fighters which totals over 160. It’s not just the biggest group of fighters in the sport, but the best, with two boxers on The Ring’s pound-for-pound list and at least 20 at the elite level of the sport.

    Showtime announced plans for expanded coverage in 2019 and beyond, including monthly shows. A major criticism of PBC has long been the inactivity of some its best fighters, but that should no longer be an issue.

    Between Showtime and Fox, there figures to be around 20 top-flight telecasts involving A-level fighters. A trickier problem will be how each network shares the best talent.

    “As much as we would like to, we know there is a limit to what we can do here,” President of Sports and Event Programming for Showtime Steven Espinoza told The Ring last week. “There’s a limit at every network at every platform. It does take a collection of networks and platforms for the sport to be healthy.”

    It’s likely Showtime will retain rights to certain weight classes they’ve invested heavily in, like welterweight, with other divisions heading over to Fox. Haymon’s roster is deepest at featherweight, welterweight, junior middleweight and light heavyweight, but there are budding stars at other weights, too.

    I wish PBC the best and I hope it causes HBO to reinvest in boxing. I doubt it though.

    With the four-year deal, the FOX broadcast network will feature 10 marquee fight nights in prime time each year, while FS1 and FOX Deportes will telecast 12 fight nights annually. The package includes FOX Sports-PBC Pay-Per-View events. The Emmy Award-winning FOX Sports production team will produce all the live events and more than 175 hours of original PBC boxing content per year across its channels.

    "FOX Sports is delighted to support PBC fights with a robust boxing programming lineup across FOX, FS1 and FOX Deportes, including a variety of prefight and postfight shows," said Bill Wanger, FOX Sports EVP, Programming, Live Operations and Research. "In addition, FOX Sports will promote PBC events across FOX's multiple platforms, networks and powerful sports programming line-up, which includes the NFL, Major League Baseball, college football, college basketball, NASCAR, USGA, MLS and WWE SmackDown programming."

    Every site is pumped for this...

    http://www.espn.com/boxing/story/_/id/24586018/premier-boxing-champions-fox-four-year-deal

    Fat Rafael not so much...like always trying to downplay PBC.



    When boxing manager/adviser Al Haymon created Premier Boxing Champions in 2015, he spent hundreds of millions of investor dollars buying time across numerous television networks, including ESPN, NBC, CBS and Fox, hoping to entice one or more of them to eventually pony up rights fees for top-level fights.

    Although most of those deals went by the wayside with nothing but red ink to show for them, Haymon has scored a modest victory. On Wednesday, Premier Boxing Champions and Fox formally announced a long-rumored rights deal.”


    * this guy claims that this deal on national tv is “modest” wtf*

    He was on the same page with Hearn and Arum claiming that PBC fighters where jumping ship, not happening....
