Premier Boxing Champions signs multiyear rights deal with Amazon Prime Video
Premier Boxing Champions has found a new broadcast home.
The top boxing promotion had seen its fights air on Showtime, but the premium network is doing away with combat sports beginning in January 2024. As a result, PBC needed a new media rights deal going into the new year with big-name boxers on its roster such as Canelo Alvarez and Gervonta Davis.
Mission accomplished, as the promotion has landed a multi-year rights agreement with Amazon.
