New Boxing Reality Show Looms: More Details Surface

By Ryan Burton

In life there is always speculation on anything that is new and cutting edge. Questions will emerge such as is it real and will it happen? While the natural reaction from most is to doubt and almost to wish for failure, that is magnified ten fold in the sweet science of boxing.

Go back a few years and the question was asked, will Oscar De La Hoya's promotional company be successful? The answer is obviously yes but it was a legitimate question at the time.

Roughly three weeks ago BoxingScene.com published information on what surely will be the biggest reality boxing show in television history. Yesterday I met with the executive producer and director of the show. We met in Las Vegas at the M Resort. They were in town along with their producing adviser, camera crew and assistants to wrap up details with some of the cast.

As BoxingScene.com previously reported, Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Yoel Judah are on board as two of the three trainers for the aspiring fighters. We can also say that there will be an appearance by 5-time world champion Zab "Super" Judah, his brother Joe, highly ranked cruiserweight contender and boxing analyst B.J. Flores, and former women's champion Christy Martin. The show will be broadcast on a hot new cable channel that is growing rapidly and is currently available in over 35 million homes.

Former IBF junior middleweight champion Kassim Ouma will be at the tryouts for the 154 pound division. Light heavyweight contender Ron Johnson is putting together the sparring for the show and today's big announcement is focused on the trainers.

This week the director is planning to sign Ruben Guerrero to be the third and final trainer.

This is only about one third of the star power that will appear on the show. Check BoxingScene.com shortly for a full interview with the executive producer Steven Marcano and the director Emilio Ferrari.

This show will undoubtedly be great for boxing. It is a reality show that will star real, professional boxers fighting in real fights with guidance by real, world-class trainers. The show will be built around the 140, 147 and 154 pound weight divisions. The winner's of the tournaments in each weight division will then face a top 20 contender to see if they can realize their "Ring Dream".

[QUOTE=killakali]isn't that more than hbo? I thought it is[/QUOTE] HBO has more traffic than most other cable networks in that many homes. Typically a network with only 35m people will be lucky to pass 500k viewers on a very good day.

They need to leave it alone. Dumbasses gonna bring boxing too far into the mainstream light and the safety-firsters gonna regulate it out of existence.
