Keith Thurman and Robert Guerrero Headline Return of Boxing to Prime Time Network TV This Saturday Night!

LAS VEGAS — There was a time when Championship boxing matches were routinely shown on unpaid network television, or so I’ve heard, having been born in the latter stages of the 20th Century. I can’t remember ever seeing one. High priced cable networks and PPV have been the sole domain for fans wishing to see the upper echelon of boxing talent over the last 20 or so odd years and that monopoly is about to receive stiff competition from NBC starting Saturday March 7th at 8:30pm Eastern 5:30pm Pacific. It still remains to be seen if boxing can become a mainstream attraction in the eye’s of the average American sports fan as the landscape has changed dramatically in the last 10 years or so. Mixed Martial Arts or MMA has risen exponentially in popularity and it will take great matchmaking and action packed fights in the ring to win back some of those combat sports fans.

NBC seems to be committed wholeheartedly to making this endeavor a success as they have invested heavily in promotion, hired the highly respected Al Michaels as host, Marv Albert will call the action and none other than Sugar Ray Leonard, himself, is onboard for the color commentary. The inaugural telecast is a stacked triple header featuring three young up and comers in Keith Thurman, Adrien Broner and Abner Mares, along with a pair of battle tested veterans in Robert Guerrero and John Molina Jr. (continue reading…)
