New York, NY - This past Wednesday and Thursday, the famed New York Golden Gloves finals took place before a packed house at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Following the completion of the finals, it was officially announced that the New York Daily News and DiBella Entertainment have entered into an exclusive joint partnership. The broadcasts of the finals will be shown on SNY as well as Comcast affiliations as part of DBE's popular Broadway Boxing series.
"DBE is thrilled to forge this partnership with the New York Golden Gloves. The Gloves are one of the preeminent amateur tournaments in the world and a New York institution. Broadway Boxing has become the home for many former New York Golden Glovers. It is natural for DBE and Broadway Boxing to join forces with the Golden Gloves to bring this exciting action to our viewers," said Lou DiBella, who served as the lead commentator on the broadcast both nights.
"Lou DiBella, being the great friend that he is, has committed to giving this exposure to these amateurs and it's truly appreciated by all of us involved with the Gloves. Lou understands the value of NYC grassroots boxing and we are thrilled to have him involved in this capacity," said Brian Adams, the New York Daily News Golden Gloves director.
"SNY is excited to add the Golden Gloves to our Broadway Boxing television package", said Kevin Sornatale. "The rich history of New York Golden Gloves enhances our overall boxing programming in 2014 and adds to our profile as the television home of all things New York sports."
