Championship boxing finds home on Super Channel

EDMONTON, AB October 28, 2008 – It’s one of the most intriguing world title fights of the year and Canadian fight fans will get a chance to see it all take place, live on Super Channel.

Live from the Trent FM Arena, in Nottingham, England, on December 6, Montreal’s Jean Pascal (21-0, 14 KO’s) and hometown hero Carl “The Cobra” Froch (23-0, 19 KO’s) will put their legacies, reputations, and dreams on the line for a shot at world boxing glory, in a toe-to-toe battle for the vacant World Boxing Council Super Middleweight title.

The action gets underway Dec. 6 on Super Channel at 4 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Pacific.

“We are delighted to be partners with Super Channel for the English broadcast in Canada of this tremendous fight,” Yvon Michel said of the Hennessy Sports promoted main event. “Super Channel has become the place that real fight fans turn to. And I know that on December 6 they’ll see a great bout, and a superstar in the making in Jean Pascal.”

Michel’s counterpart for this fight, Hennessy Sports’ Mick Hennessy, feels that this is the chance for Froch to both make a name for himself on a worldwide basis, and to claim his first world title.

“Carl is truly one of the best fighters at 168 lbs, and he’s been waiting a long time to get his world title shot. Fighters from Jermain Taylor to Denis Inkin to Joe Calzaghe have avoided him like the plague,” Hennessy said. “So full marks to Pascal for stepping up, but this is Carl’s moment, and he’ll make the most of it.”

“Super Channel is quickly becoming the Canadian home for championship boxing,” said Sandy Perkins, Super Channel’s Vice President Programming. “The Pascal-Froch fight promises to cement our status as Canada’s premiere boxing network.”

As evidence to Super Channel’s stature, Perkins points to the recent broadcast of Vitali Klitschko’s stunning performance against Sam Peter to capture the WBC Heavyweight Title, and Chad Dawson’s convincing vanquish of IBF Light Heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver.

PRESS RELEASE: BOXERS BATTLE FOR OKLAHOMA LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE

On November 24, 2008, catBOX Entertainment will present professional boxing at Remington Park Racing and Casino. The fights will start at 7:00p.m. This will be the fourth fight card promoted by catBOX Entertainment at Remington Park Racing and Casino located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

For the MAIN EVENT, two undefeated boxers battle in a championship bout for the Oklahoma Lightweight Title. Lightweights Noah Zuhdi (4-0, 4 KOs) and George Colbert (2-0, 2 K0s) will be fighting to win and claim the current vacant Oklahoma State Lightweight title belt. Sanctioned by the Oklahoma Boxing Commission, the bout is scheduled for six rounds and is certain to be an exciting match up between these two popular Oklahoma boxers. "Getting to fight for the Oklahoma Lightweight Title is a tremendous opportunity,” Zuhdi stated. “A victory on November 24 would allow me to be one step closer to accomplishing my ultimate goal of becoming a world champion.”

Welterweight local favorite Kyle Sherman (10-1-1), who routinely delivers an exciting match, will also be fighting on the card. Sherman’s last fight at Remington Park was a slugfest that had the crowd on its feet and went the distance.
