Youngest boxing promoter in the World secures TV deal

Goodwin Promotions have signalled their ambition for the new season by securing an exclusive television deal with sports channel Primetime in association with Sports Tonight Live, BoxRec News can reveal.

Under the terms of the agreement, Goodwin Promotions’ shows will be broadcast live and exclusive on Primetime (SKY channel 498) on a free-to-air basis with a two-and-a-half to three hour time slot. Fans can also watch the action on Freeview (channel 112) or online at www.sportstonightlive.com.

The new package includes the provision of studio-based preview shows leading up to the events, featured boxer documentaries and non-televised undercard fights being screened on delay. Goodwin Promotions are aiming to bring shows to viewers approximately every six weeks.

“We are delighted to have signed this exclusive agreement which further underlines the strides that Goodwin Promotions have made in a relatively short space of time,” commented Steve Goodwin to BoxRec News, who heads up Goodwin Promotions along with his daughter Olivia running Goodwin Main Events.

“This television deal is unique for a small-hall promoter as it will provide regular opportunities for lesser established fighters to elevate their careers, whilst making them easily accessible to boxing fans as everything will be broadcast on a free-to-air basis. The latter is very important as we want the public to be able to identify with fighters more and get to know them better which is crucial to boxing’s long term future,” he added.

“the first show will be promoted by Olivia and she will make history by not only being the youngest boxing promoter in the world currently but the youngest boxing promoter ever to secure a free to air tevevision deal”.

Goodwin Promotions’ Primetime debut will commence with their bumper 20-fight show at York Hall in Bethnal Green on 15th September. The bill will feature the vacant Southern Area light-middleweight title clash between Kris Agyei-Dua and Eddie Corcoran. Also slated to appear is unbeaten Ghanaian banger Richard Commey, 12-0 (12) against former Commonwealth super-bantamweight title challenger Kris Hughes and the undercard will also feature heavyweight hopefuls Dillian Whyte and Ian Lewison in separate bouts plus many other exciting bouts.
