Big month for SHOWTIME!

Over a span of 28 days SHOWTIME Sports will feature a frenzied fight schedule, with late March and April filled with championship fights and meaningful matchups. With two highly anticipated SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecasts and two installments of ShoBox: The New Generation, almost every weekend features a can’t-miss event. It kicks off when undefeated super middleweight prospect and 2004 Olympic Bronze medalist Andre Dirrell (17-0, 12 KOs) takes on Derrick Findley (13-2, 8 KOs) on Saturday, March 28, in a 10-round super middleweight fight in a special Saturday edition of ShoBox: The New Generation. Exactly one week later, SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING showcases a world championship unification bout when WBC 140-pound champ Timothy Bradley (23-0, 11 KOs) takes on WBO champ Kendall Holt (25-2, 13 KOs) on Saturday, April 4, live from the Bell Centre in Montreal with a special start time of 10:45 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) to accommodate fans watching the conclusion of the 2009 NCAA® Men’s Final Four®. On Friday, April 17, ShoBox brings fans another stylistic matchup with world title implications when Yuriorkis Gamboa (13-0, 11 KOs) squares off against Jose Rojas (25-6-1, 17 KOs) for the interim WBA featherweight title. To top off a spectacular month of April, SHOWTIME gives fans another world championship fight the following night on Saturday, April 25, when WBC super middleweight champ Carl Froch (24-0, 19 KOs) takes on former middleweight champ Jermain Taylor (28-2-1, 17 KOs) live from MGM Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Conn.

    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.
