Premier Boxing Champions Adds CBS to its Stable of TV Deals

By C.J. Tuttle Feb 17, 2015
Premier Boxing Champions and Showtime Sports have announced a multi-year deal to bring boxing to CBS Television Network.

The news was revealed via press release on Tuesday. The first card will air on Saturday, April 4 and be headlined by Adonis Stevenson defending his WBC title against former super middleweight champ Sakio Bika. In the co-main event, undefeated light heavyweight Artur Beterbiev will face Gabriel Campillo.

With the announcement, Premier Boxing Champions will now provide enough fighters for up to eight events that will air on CBS in conjunction with boxing cards airing on Showtime. In addition, the Al Haymon-led promotion already has deals in place with NBC and Spike to air separate cards.

There are already additional confirmed dates on CBS, which include live broadcasts in June, July and September. The broadcasts will air live at 4:30 p.m. ET/1:30 p.m. PT.
