Fox Deportes Launches Golden Boy Promotions Boxing Series
FOX Deportes is expanding its combat programming by partnering with Oscar de la Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions, the first Hispanic owned boxing promotional company. The partnership includes one originally produced boxing event per month from the United States which will also air on Fox Sports Net along with live boxing events from cities throughout Mexico. In addition, FOX Deportes will broadcast classic fights from Golden Boy Promotions extensive library.
“Our partnership with Golden Boy Promotions is another example of FOX Deportes’ commitment to deliver the most exciting sports events to our viewers,” said Vincent Cordero, EVP and General Manager of FOX Deportes. “As the leading U.S. Latino sports network, we are thrilled to partner with Golden Boy Promotions and Oscar de la Hoya, a boxing legend and a true U.S. Latino role model.”
“We are excited about our new partnership with FOX Deportes,” said Oscar de la Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions. “This is another step in ensuring that fight fans around the world don’t miss out on any of the great boxing action we present, both in the United States and Mexico. It’s a very important move towards increasing viewership and knowledge of our great sport. We are thrilled about this new partnership with FOX Deportes.”
FOX Deportes will broadcast two live boxing events per month from Mexico, one of the most important breeding grounds for boxing talent in the world. These events will bring the best fighters from Mexico to living rooms across the United States each month, featuring both established stars and promising up-and-comers.
Additionally, a classic fight from the Golden Boy archives will air once a month and will feature past and current world champions such as Oscar de la Hoya, Bernard Hopkins, Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barrera.
