    SHOWTIME Sports and Premier Boxing Champions have entered into a three-year boxing programming agreement extending their long-term partnership. The deal calls for a monthly series of events presented by Premier Boxing Champions to air live on SHOWTIME, ensuring the network’s access to the deepest talent pool in boxing and its continued ability to deliver the industry’s leading programming.

    The agreement also calls for Premier Boxing Champions to deliver content for a significant expansion of live boxing programming from SHOWTIME Sports coming in 2019. The announcement was made today by Stephen Espinoza, President, Sports and Event Programming for Showtime Networks Inc.

    Premier Boxing Champions, a live boxing series created by Haymon Sports, LLC, features more than 160 boxers from around the world. Founded in 2014, Premier Boxing Champions boasts the largest collection of world champions from bantamweight to heavyweight, 14 in total and far more than any other entity in the sport.

    The announcement of the formal deal between Showtime and Premier Boxing Champions was made with PBC close to finalizing a rights deal with Fox and Fox Sports 1 for a series of fights as part of a multi-year deal that is in the works, according to multiple sources.

    PBC events have been airing on Fox and Fox Sports 1 but as part of a deal under which PBC purchased time on the networks. The deal in the works would see Fox paying a rights fee going forward.
