UniMas (formerly Telefutura), Top Rank and Tecate announced today the launch of the latest incarnation of “Solo Boxeo.” The 90-minute broadcast will air 26 telecasts live on the UniMas network on Saturdays. The series will debut tomorrow night (Saturday) beginning at midnight ET/11PM PT, from the McCallen Convention Center in McCallen, Texas, with a show headlined by undefeated top-10 contender Jose Felix Jr. risking record and rating in a 10-round lightweight bout against battle-tested Geraldo Robles.
The Solo Boxeo series will not only offer boxing action, but will allow fans to follow these fighters as they return from victories, marching up the ratings toward world title shots. Former world champions, world-class contenders, and up-and-coming prospects are scheduled to appear in future shows. The February 2013 schedule includes telecasts on February 2, February 16 and February 23.
