Espinoza Intends To Be Frequent Barclays/GBP Partner

By Mitch Abramson

Showtime Boxing chief Stephen Espinoza made it clear that he intends to be a frequent partner with Golden Boy Promotions and the Barclays Center in their presentation of monthly boxing cards in downtown Brooklyn.

The affable Espinoza, the former lead attorney for Golden Boy Promotions, said on Thursday that Showtime will be the dominant network as it relates to broadcasting the monthly boxing series at the Barclays Arena, perhaps even doing another show following the Oct. 20 opener before the end of the year.

“I think that given the relationship that we’re establishing with [Barclays Center CEO] Brett [Yormark],” Espinoza said, “and given that it’s local I think we’ll be collaborating on a number of events going forward. I know Barclays does want to do shows at all levels. We have discussed the possibility of a couple [of] ShoBox [cards] here. We don’t have any sort of formal deal in place, but I think the relationship we have - I think we’ll be in business in many of the events, maybe even an event before the end of the year.

"It will be case by case. But certainly for this level of event and for a ShoBox, we’d love to be able to do as much as possible with them. It’s a beautiful venue. It’s going to have great sight-lines. It’s scaled very nicely and I know it will look great on TV.”
