Big fights on tap for at least nine straight weeks

By Karl Freitag

Starting this weekend, a long run of big fights will keep fight fans occupied every Saturday night. HBO/HBO PPV will be launching an all out boxing assault with major fights scheduled for eight of the next nine Saturday nights. All feature big name fighters in compelling bouts. Meanwhile, after their blockbuster Mayweather-Alvarez PPV, Showtime doesn’t return until October 26, which fills in the one date HBO missed. Expect Showtime to go up against HBO in some still to be announced head-to-head telecasts in November. Matchups and dates will be announced shortly. AWE TV returns with an attractive bout on October 26, while boxing will also be back on network TV in November with an NBC Fight Night telecast. The run could extend even longer as there are still more dates to be filled in November and December.

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.
