bronergarciaToday, SHOWTIME Sports® announced a blockbuster matchup between two of boxing’s biggest stars as three-division world champion Mikey Garcia moves up in weight to 140 pounds to face four-division champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner in the main event of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING®, Saturday, July 29, live on SHOWTIME.  Adrien Broner vs. Mikey Garcia is presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

In yet another significant main event matchup on SHOWTIME, these world-class fighters will meet at a critical time in their respective careers.  A three-division world champion at the age of 23, and one of the youngest four-division world champions in boxing history, the flamboyant Broner remains one of the most accomplished and popular athletes – and perhaps the most polarizing – in the sport today.  Among the top 140-pounders in the world, Broner is undefeated at or below 140 pounds with his only two losses coming against welterweight world champions Marcos Maidana and Shawn Porter.  An experienced fighter at just 27 years old, Broner (33-2, 24 KOs) still believes he is the future of the sport and promises to prove it against Garcia on July 29.

Mikey Garcia, 29 years old and undefeated (36-0, 30 KOs), is a recently crowned lightweight champion on a self-appointed journey to become a household name in the sport of boxing.  Garcia will move up in weight for the second time in just three fights to challenge Broner.  Garcia represents a boxing family developing legendary status in the modern era of the sport.  He is renowned for his sportsmanship and his commanding presence in the ring, honed by his brother and acclaimed trainer Robert Garcia.  Mikey has held world titles at 126, 130 and 135 pounds, but has never fought north of 138.

Saturday, July 29 will be the 19th live boxing event on SHOWTIME this year.  The main event bout will be a WBC 12-round special attraction.

“SHOWTIME Sports continues to deliver the most anticipated matchups, the most important events and the most thrilling fights in boxing,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports.  “We consistently feature top-rated champions and challengers.  The best are fighting the best and the results have been spectacular.  Adrien Broner vs. Mikey Garcia is a fight that fight fans have dreamed of-an undefeated, young star facing one of the best 140-pound fighters in the sport, both men in the prime of their respective careers.  July 29 promises to be a memorable night in a year already full of memorable boxing events.”

Broner, of Cincinnati, Ohio, has achieved more in his young career than most fighters can hope for in a lifetime.  After earning world titles at 130, 135 and 147 pounds, Broner won a belt in a fourth weight division – 140 pounds – in October 2015 when he defeated Khabib Allakhverdiev via 12th round stoppage to become the second youngest four-division champion in boxing history at 26 (behind Oscar De La Hoya, 24).  As an amateur, Broner compiled a record of 300 wins, 19 losses under the guidance of his trainer Mike Stafford, who has remained in Broner’s corner throughout his entire career.  Broner will turn 28 years old on July 28, the day before his bout with Garcia.

Once considered one of the top young pound-for-pound boxers in the world, Mikey Garcia, of Moreno Valley by way of Oxnard, Calif., returned to the ring after a two-and-half-year layoff in July 2016 without missing a beat.  He scored a dominant fifth-round stoppage over former world champion Elio Rojas in his first fight back.  Then, Garcia became a three-division champion by beating previously undefeated lightweight world champion Dejan Zlaticanin with a vicious third-round knockout last January.  Garcia has stopped 19 of his last 21 opponents including Roman “Rocky” Martinez, Juan Manuel Lopez, Orlando Salido and Bernabe Concepcion.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Super Channel to air Mega-Fight

KELL BROOK vs. ERROL SPENCE, JR.

May 27 from United Kingdom

LIVE THIS SATURDAY AFTERNOON

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (May 22, 2017) – Super Channel subscribers across Canada will be able to watch this Saturday’s mega-fight between International Boxing Federation (IBF) Welterweight World Champion Kell “The Special One” Brook and undefeated No. 1 mandatory contender Errol “The Truth” Spence, Jr., starting at 3 p.m. ET/ 12 p.m. PT, live from the outdoor Bramall Football Ground in Sheffield, Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

“Brook vs. Spence, Jr.” is a presentation of Matchroom Boxing. Super Channel will air four exciting fights from this card, headlined by one of the most anticipated fights of the year between two world-class prize fighters, exclusively in Canada.

“We are thrilled to be bringing back world-class caliber boxing to our viewers,” said Troy Wassil, Director of Programming, Domestic Distributors & Sports. “This is the type of high-quality, exclusive sports content that subscribers can look forward to seeing as part of the Super Channel Sports sub-brand.”

Brook (36-1, 25 KOs), fighting at home in Sheffield, captured the IBF 147-pound division title August 16, 2014, with a signature victory, by way of a 12-round decision, over Shawn Porter in Carson, California. The 31-year-old Brook has successfully defended his championship belt three times, including a pair of challengers from Canada, Jo Jo Dan and Kevin Bizier.

In his most recent fight this past September, unified world middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (35-0) ruined Brook’s perfect record, stopping the game Brit who had moved up two weight classes in five rounds.

Brock is 4-1 (3 KOs) in world title fights, 3-1 (1 KO) in fights against former or current world champions, defeating Porter, Lovemore Ndou and Vyacheslav Senchenko.

Spence, Jr., 27, has been hyped by some as the possible successor to retired Floyd Mayweather, Jr. as the new face of boxing. Fighting out of Texas, Spence, Jr. was a 2012 US Olympian who fought in the London Games.

Spence Jr. has defeated the likes of former world champion Chris Algieri, as well as Leonard Bundu, Alejandro Barrera and Chris van Heerden, among the more notables during his 4 ½ year professional career.

The 12-round co-feature for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Middleweight World Championship pits three-time World title challenger “Saint” George Groves (25-3-0, 18 KOs) against former WBA Super Middleweight World Champion Fedor Chudinov (14-1, 10 KOs).

Groves, fighting out of London, has defeated fellow countryman and current IBF Super Middleweight World Champion James DeGale and former World light heavyweight titlist Glen Johnson.

Last February, Chudinov lost his WBA strap to Felix Sturm in a rematch of a title fight the Russian had won. Chudinov has also defeated Frank Buglioni and Ben McCullough.

Kicking-off the three-hour, action-packed Super Channel broadcast is 12-round heavyweight clash between David “White Rhino” Allen (11-2-1, 8 KOs) and Lenroy “TNT” Thomas (20-4, 10 KOs) for the vacant Commonwealth Championship, followed by the professional debut of 2012 British Olympian Anthony Fowler versus Arturs Geikins (3-7-1, 2 KOs) in a four-round middleweight match.

Andre Berto (31-5, 24 KOs) met Shawn Porter (27-2-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night in a WBC elimination bout.

 

Listen to my thoughts on the fight, along with Jermell Charlo vs. Charles Hatley’s 154 pound title fight.

 

 

serranoSerrano Quotes: 

“It means everything to me.  We worked so hard.  We worked hard for this moment,” Serrano said.  “To be a five-division world champion is amazing.  To be the first female and first Puerto Rican is amazing. 

 

“I’m so proud to be a Puerto Rican.  I’m so proud to be a SHOWTIME fighter.  I’m just so happy for this moment.  Just to be a five-division world champion, I could retire today and be the happy moment alive.  I just started.  I hope I’m back again.”

richardson-hitchins“I’m kind of disappointed that I didn’t get the knockout, but he was tough. I hurt him with clean shots and I thought I was going to get him out of there in the third. I think if I had a couple more rounds, the fight would have definitely been stopped.
 
“I wanted to pace myself but I started out fast and pressuring him. I hurt him but couldn’t get him down. I’m looking to improve each time out. 
 
“I feel like I know how to handle the crowds and my emotions. I’m glad that I got some rounds in. It’s about getting experience each time.”

JERMELL CHARLO:

“He gave me some good work. I knew I had to keep my punch rate up and let my hands go and do what I had to do.
 
“Sparring with Errol Spence helped a lot. It helped me improve my accuracy. Errol is not an easy guy to hit. So it really helped me a lot.
 
“Hatley was moving around a lot. He was trying to engage and I tried to tell him to come fight. When he finally got in there, that’s when I got him out.
 
“The Charlos don’t play. This is what my life has always been like. The Charlos have strength and power and that’s what makes us who we are. My whole family and team are here and we’re doing our thing.”
 

“I used that jab to set up the right hand,” Charlo said.  “I knew Charles Hatley goes down and he gets back up – he’s a warrior – and I knew I had to get in there and be a lion. 

“I’m the champ so I have to continue to fight my mandatory.  They got a guy named Jarret Hurd that took my brother’s title – we could unify.” 


DERRICK JAMES, CHARLO’S TRAINER:
“I thought he gave a phenomenal performance. He did everything we worked on in camp. 
 
“He set him up with the jab and took him out with the right. That is what he needed to do.”
 
JERMALL CHARLO, BROTHER: 
“I’m so proud of my brother. He stayed focused this week and did the right things in the ring.
 

“He hit the gas when he needed to. He won every round. We are blessed.”
