    PRESS RELEASE -- SHOWTIME Sports and Premier Boxing Champions today unveiled a loaded five-month boxing schedule of nine high-stakes world championship events beginning Saturday, May 15, live on SHOWTIME. The schedule delivers two events per month through August. Thirteen matchups have been announced thus far with no less than seven world title fights, and 12 fighters defending undefeated records. The lineup features many of boxing’s best young fighters taking on career-defining challenges in their primes. All fights on the schedule will take place before a live audience, keeping with applicable local COVID-19 safety protocols.

    The sizzling summer run features the dynamic Charlo twins as undefeated electrifying champion Jermall Charlo defends his WBC middleweight world title against Juan Macias Montiel in a special Juneteenth homecoming in Houston on Saturday, June 19, live on SHOWTIME.

    The following Saturday, June 26, unbeaten Mayweather Promotions star Gervonta “Tank” Davis moves up two weight classes for a chance to become a three-division world champion when he takes on fellow undefeated champion Mario Barrios for his super lightweight world title in what will be Davis’ second pay-per-view showdown.

    The next month, WBC, WBA and IBF 154-pound charismatic world champion Jermell Charlo looks to make boxing history when he takes on WBO junior middleweight world champion Brian Castaño in a mega-fight to crown the first four-belt 154-pound world champion.

    Really nothing to get too excited about here folks. The B-side names read like a who’s who of boxing obscurity and will these Charlos brothers ever step up and take over? I can’t decide who fights worse competition, them two or Andrade. Boo Boo has had a “world title” belt now for how many years and his best opponent is still Vanes from forever ago and he got dropped. What DA?!?

      I'm on board with KO: "nothing to get too excited about." Eddie Hearn called Jermall Charlo vs. Juan Macias Montiel a disgrace, or words to that effect.

      There are only two fights on this list that get my juices flowing: Donaire vs. Oubaali which I think will be very competitive and Gervonta vs. Mario Barrios even though I have trouble imagining Gervonta losing.

      There's a great line in the latest Thomas Hauser story. Asked if he thinks he will regret saying goodbye to boxing, Bart Barry said, "seeing the current boxing calendar makes leaving the sport easy."

      Bart Barry makes a good point.

      And he is absolutely right. Boxing, from my point of view is back in that dark period of disinterest after Tyson retired but before things got red-hot again in 2011 to about 2019, with 2013 one of boxing’s best ever. It’s all strange exhibitions now, old guys still lingering around who need to go away, mismatches, and the slow shaking off of an old guard to make way for the fantasy of a new 4 Kings at lightweight or an undisputed heavyweight champion. Boxing can come back but I’m not hopeful. What we’re seeing is a “great reset” across all spectrums of previously free human association and the social engineers are in control of boxing as well as everything else and it will be used to force their view of reality onto the rest of us. Boxing is not quite the despicable NBA or NFL just yet but there is pressure already on the sport’s power brokers to implement the great reset or be brutally cancelled.
