Fight Network Presents Big Knockout Boxing Live on Saturday, June 27

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release

TORONTO (June 26, 2015) — Fight Network, the world’s premier 24/7 television channel dedicated to complete coverage of combat sports, presents the third live installment of Big Knockout Boxing this Saturday, June 27 at 10 p.m. ET immediately following a live Canadian broadcast of the UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Romero prelims at 8 p.m. ET from Hollywood, Florida.

 

Fight Network’s live broadcast of BKB 3 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas will air nationwide in Canada and globally in over 30 countries across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

 

The BKB heavyweight title is up for grabs in the main event as unbeaten Julian Pollard (6-0) faces Rodney Hernandez (7-2-1), a late replacement for combat sports superstar Tyrone Spong.

 

The exciting card also features a junior middleweight bout pitting hardened veteran Jesus Soto Karass (28-10-3) against Adrian Granados (13-4-2), a middleweight clash between Shane Mosley Jr. (4-1) and Jason Kelly (3-0), a junior middleweight tilt between Janks Trotter (9-1-1) and Ed Paredes (35-5-1), plus Kyrgyzstan native Urmat Ryskeldiev (10-3-1) throws down with Florida native Marcus Willis (14-4-2) at junior middleweight.

 

BKB is a revolutionary concept in the sweet science with fighters competing inside a pit with a 17-foot diameter. With no ropes and no corners, there’s no choice but to engage, and with a fighting surface half the size of a traditional boxing ring, there’s nowhere to hide. Strap in for two-minute rounds of pure intensity, plus HitChip sensors in the fighters’ gloves measure the speed and force of every punch they throw, so you can see the impact of every hook, jab and haymaker.

 

BKB 3 kicks off at 10 p.m. ET this Saturday, June 27.
