Spence, Garcia, Charlos Get Mainstream Exposure Via FOX Deal

By Lem Satterfield

IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence and four-division title winner Mikey Garcia appeared FOX's telecasts of the past two Dallas Cowboys victories over The Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints in advance of their March 16 clash on FOX Pay Per View  (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

“The Truth” Spence Jr. (24-0, 21 KOs) pursues his third defense and 12th straight knockout against Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs), who will make his 147-pound debut in an attempt to earn a fifth crown in as many divisions.

The 28-year-old Spence posed with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones during the team's November 22nd Thanksgiving Day, 31-23 victory over the Redskins, and the 30-year-old Garcia was shown in attendance during the Cowboys' 13-10 victory over the Saints on November 29.

The Cowboys-Redskins contest drew an estimated 30.8 million viewers, and Cowboys-Saints, a 14.6/25 share in overnight ratings -- the highest-ever for a Thursday Night Football game, according to a report by Kenneth Bouhairie on The Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) website.

Last weekend’s series of college and NFL games on FOX included commercials for the December 22nd PBC on FOX event (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) featuring the 28-year-old Charlo twins -- Jermell (31-0, 15 KOs) and two-division title winner Jermall (27-0, 21 KOs) -- in defense of their WBC 154- and 160-pound championships at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Jermell pursues his fourth defense against repeat title challenger Tony Harrison (27-2, 21 KOs), and older-by-a-minute Jermall, his initial interim defense and fourth straight stoppage against southpaw Willie Monroe (23-3, 6 KOs).

The Charlo card opens with 2012 Olympic heavyweight and former title challenger Dominic  Breazeale (19-1, 17 KOs) going after his third straight stoppage win against Carlos Negron (20-1, 16 KOs).

Negron has scored seven straight knockouts since losing by third-round KO in September 2011 to Epifanio Mendoza, a first-round stoppage loser to Breazeale in December 2014.

The Charlos' advertisements were seen by 23.4 million viewers during the NFL’s Sunday late afternoon games; 14.4 million during the early afternoon game; 8.8 million during Saturday’s Big Ten Championship and 4.1 million during the Pac 12 Championship, according to PBC, which has four- and three-year deals with FOX and Showtime, respectively.
