Manager/adviser Al Haymon is making a lot of moves. Two weeks ago the 'most powerful man in boxing' held a press conference in New York City to announce his new boxing series, Premier Boxing Champions, on NBC.

The first show of the 'Premier Boxing Champions' series will debut on March 7th, on NBC, from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Two fights have been announced for the show, Robert Guerrero vs. Keith Thurman and Adrien Broner vs. John Molina. Another show takes place on April 11th with Danny Garcia vs. Lamont Peterson and likely Andy Lee vs. Peter Quillin.

Sources with knowledge of the details have advised BoxingScene.com that Al Haymon is now rolling out another series of shows, this time on Spike TV.

The first show of the series is being lined up for March 13th, with former champion Andre Berto (29-3, 22KOs) facing Josesito Lopez (33-6, 19KOs) in a welterweight encounter. Former welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-1-1, 15KOs) is expected to appear in the co-feature but the opponent has not been confirmed. Information regarding the location and venue has not been confirmed at this time.

More details are going to be announced at a Haymon Boxing press conference.

From Spike TV:

SPIKE TV GETS INTO THE RING WITH MONTHLY
PREMIER BOXING CHAMPIONS SERIES

Premier Boxing Champions Series to Launch on SPIKE TV on Friday, March 13 at 9:00pm ET/PT

Andre Berto vs. Josesito Lopez and Shawn Porter vs. Roberto Garcia Co-Headline First Event


New York, NY, Jan. 22, 2015 – For the past decade, Spike TV has been a prime destination for combat sports on cable, most recently with Bellator MMA and GLORY kickboxing. Now, Spike is expanding its combat sports roster and is getting into the ring with a monthly primetime boxing series “Premier Boxing Champions.” The new series will debut Friday, March 13 at 9:00pm ET/PT.

Spike TV has entered into a multi-year agreement to present the Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) series each month for free on Fridays. The network will create compelling monthly shoulder programming for each fight that will help showcase the next generation of boxing stars and energize the sport’s fan base.

The first Premier Boxing Champions series event on Spike will showcase two high-octane matchups, Andre Berto vs. Josesito Lopez and Shawn Porter vs. Roberto Garcia.

“We share the vision of the Premier Boxing Champions series to put the fighters first,” said Kevin Kay, President, Spike TV. “The fighters are the stars, and we will give them a platform to demonstrate why they are among greatest and most exciting athletes in the world.”

Spike’s on-air team will be announced at a later date. The Executive Producers for PBC on Spike include Jon Slusser, Senior Vice President, Sports and Multiplatform Programming, Scott Fishman, and Kay.

Enclosed is more information on the first PBC series event on Spike. PBC on Spike TV is created for television by Haymon Boxing Management and will feature top-level fights starring the sport’s biggest names.

Friday, March 13 at 9:00pm ET/PT

Andre Berto vs. Josesito Lopez

Andre Berto of Winter Haven, Fla., is an electrifying welterweight with an outstanding record of 29-3 with 22 knockouts. It doesn’t matter who he is facing, Berto always comes to fight. He has been in several “fight of the year” battles against Victor Ortiz, Robert Guerrero and Luis Collazo. Josesito Lopez is a battle-tested ring veteran from Riverside, Cal., with a record of 33-6 with 19 knockouts. Lopez blends tenacity with superb boxing skills to give opponents fits in the ring as he did in epic battles against Victor Ortiz, Saul (Canelo) Alvarez and Marcos Maidana. Berto-Lopez shapes up as a no-holds barred ring war.

Shawn Porter vs. Roberto Garcia

Shawn Porter of Akron, Ohio is a perpetual motion machine in the ring, drawing comparisons to the great Aaron Pryor. Heavy-handed with power in both hands, Porter has a record of 24-1-1 with 15 knockouts and that record includes some impressive victories over Devon Alexander and Paulie Malignaggi. Roberto Garcia, a tough veteran from Houston, Texas with a record of 33-3, 22 knockouts, has the kind of ring savvy that comes with experience and superb boxing skills. He has won eight straight matches and will ride that momentum into his fight against Porter, who is coming off the first loss of his professional career. Both Porter and Garcia have something to prove, which always makes for an exciting match.

Spike TV to begin airing monthly PBC fights

JAN 22, 2015 BY PBC EDITOR
Spike TV is now stepping into the ring. The cable network today announced the launch of a monthly prime-time series featuring Premier Boxing Champions bouts, with the first fights airing on Spike on Friday, March 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The PBC series, created for TV by Haymon Boxing, will showcase top-level fights featuring the next generation of boxing stars.

The first PBC on Spike card will be a co-main event consisting of two fights between 147-pound combatants.

Former world champion Andre “The Beast” Berto will face battle-tested contender Josesito “Riverside Rocky” Lopez in one bout, while the other matchup will be a clash between former world champion Shawn “Showtime” Porter and tough-nosed contender Roberto “La Amenaza” Garcia.

Berto (29-3) won the world title with a seventh-round stoppage of Miguel Angel Rodriguez in June 2008, and successfully defended the championship five times before losing to Victor Ortiz in 2011’s Fight of the Year.

Lopez (33-6) is riding a three-bout winning streak dating to 2013, and upset former champion Ortiz with a ninth-round knockout in 2012.

Porter (24-1) defeated Devon Alexander in December 2013 to win the 147-pound championship, and knocked out Paulie Malignaggi last April to retain his title. He experienced his first pro loss in August, with England’s Kell Brook taking the championship in a 12-round majority decision.

Garcia (36-3) has won eight straight fights since losing to former world champion Antonio Margarito in May 2010.

Spike has entered into a multi-year agreement to televise PBC fights on Fridays each month.

The network’s on-air team will be announced at a later date.

The PBC on Spike monthly series will debut March 13.
