By Media Report on Doghouse Boxing (April 27, 2010)
Las Vegas (April 27) - With the Mayweather vs. Mosley: Who R U Picking? mega-fight this Saturday, fans now have something extra to look forward to on fight night, as a free undercard preview will be broadcast by several satellite and cable providers, including DirecTV, Dish Network, inDEMAND and TVN. The "free-view" will feature two of the exciting non-televised undercard fights before the pay-per-view telecast begins. The special one and a half-hour show will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. PT.
The two fights included in the broadcast will be Mayweather Promotions' fast-rising star Jesse Vargas (9-0, 4 KO's) vs. Arturo Morua (25-13-1, 14 KO's) in an eight round junior welterweight fight and Golden Boy Promotions' undefeated junior lightweight prospect Eloy Perez (16-0-2, 4 KO's) vs. Gilberto Leon (23-7-2, 7 KO's) in a ten round NABO title fight. The free telecast will feature color commentary by "The Colonel" Bob Sheridan and Dave Botempo.
"Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions both have young talent featured on this show that we feel deserve a chance to showcase their talent," said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. "Both of these fights are expected to be competitive and exciting, and will be a great start to what is going to be the biggest night in boxing this year."
"May 1 is going to be a great night of boxing from start to finish," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "The Mayweather vs. Mosley undercard is so packed with talent, we wanted to give fans a chance to see even more than what is already being offered on the pay-per-view telecast."
