As previously reported by BoxingScene.com, a new reality boxing show has received the go ahead by a major cable network to begin filming early next year. The casting will take place in the boxing capital of the world, Las Vegas, Nevada from January 4th through 6th. As previously stated, the round robin style tournament will be in the sport's hottest weight divisions, super lightweight, junior welterweight and welterweight.
BoxingScene.com recently sat down with the executive producer who has agreed to do an exclusive full length interview with us next week that will provide us with the details of the show. BoxingScene.com was also presented a signed, executed contract to prove the show has been picked up by a major cable network.
As we previously reported, Floyd Mayweather Sr. is on board to be a celebrity trainer. BoxingScene.com can now also confirm that Yoel Judah, father of former two-division champion Zab Judah, has agreed to be a trainer on the show. The final world-class trainer will be revealed in the next few weeks.
Next week's interview will also provide information for boxers interested in participating in the Las Vegas casting call.
