Under this agreement Super Channel will air live SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING and ShoBox: The New Generation telecasts through 2014 to viewers in Canada.

The first SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING event under the new deal airs this Saturday, Jan 26 at 10 p.m. ET, live from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and features Lucas Matthysse (32-2, 30 KOs) taking on Mike Dallas Jr. (19-2-1, 8 KOs) for the WBC Super Lightweight Interim Championship. In the co-feature bouts, Selcuk Aydin (23-1, 17 KOs) faces Jesus Soto Karass (28-8-3, 17 KOs) in a Welterweight bout, and Jermell Charlo (10-0, 6 KOs) takes on Harry Joe Yorgey (25-1-1, 12 KO's) in a Jr. Middleweight bout.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring SHOWTIME back to our viewers in Canada.  Super Channel’s fight fans let us know just how much they missed these exclusive and exciting events and now we are able to consistently bring them all the SHOWTIME boxing that they want to see, live,” said Sandy Perkins, Super Channel’s Vice President of Programming. “We are very pleased to continue our relationship with SHOWTIME and proud that Super Channel continues to be a place where our viewers can go to see unique programming that can’t be seen anywhere else on television.”

“The Super Channel has been a great partner for us over the years,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports. “The Canadian sports fan has shown a voracious appetite for boxing so we are very proud to present our slate of world-class fights to the nation.  Not only does it increase the awareness of our brand throughout the country, it also gives the elite fighters competing on our network a broader stage on which to perform.”
