SiriusXM is giving an old-school delivery to a new era in boxing. The satellite radio provider will begin airing Premier Boxing Champions bouts starting with Saturday’s exciting double bill in Brooklyn, New York.
The co-headlining card featuring Danny Garcia against Lamont Peterson, and Andy Lee against Peter Quillin will air on SiriusXM Sports Zone (Channel 92) starting at 8 p.m. ET, bringing boxing back to a national radio audience.
The PBC on SiriusXM broadcast team for Saturday’s fights features blow-by-blow announcer Randy Gordon, former editor of The Ring and New York Athletic Commission chairman, and former heavyweight contender Gerry Cooney as the analyst. Sway Calloway, host of Sway in the Morning on Eminem’s Shade 45 channel, will be the ringside reporter.
SiriusXM will broadcast more than 10 PBC events this year, with upcoming dates being announced later.
“So many of the great moments in boxing history were experienced by fight fans through their radios,” said Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s senior vice president of sports programming. “We’ll deliver that experience again on SiriusXM by bringing the sounds and excitement from ringside into those fans’ cars, homes and phones.”
