Arena inks TV deal

A new TV deal between Arena Box-Promotion and the Sat.1 network will officially be announced at a press conference on Tuesday in Hamburg. The ProSiebenSat1 Media Group is one of the biggest in Germany. They had previously been involved in boxing from 1997 until 2001, broadcasting world championship fights of WBO light heavy champ Dariusz Michalczewski. Now Sat. 1 will feature the rematch between German heavyweight hope Steffen Kretschmann (14-1, 13 KOs) and Russian tough-guy Denis Bakhtov (32-5, 21 KOs). In June 2009, Bakhtov pulled off an upset by knocking out Kretschmann in one round. Now the German is seeking revenge. More details will be announced next week.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
