PBC Boxing joining Amazon 2024 story revealed by key insiders near to the situation, following the closing of Showtime Boxing. With boxing bigger than ever in the post Mayweather era, Paramount Networks pulled the plug on Showtime Boxing earlier this month. Over the last year, there had been rumors of Netflix and Amazon looking to step into the ring and battle the UFC. Some were even fearful that DAZN would get the PBC, which has been home to Oscar de la Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions.
Now, reports have begun to leak that Amazon Prime Video will be the home for PBC Boxing, beginning in January 2024. With big names like Deontay Wilder, Canelo Alvarez, Terence Crawford, Errol Spence Jr. and Gervonta Davis awaiting their next fights, Amazon will be looking to expand boxing bigger than ever. Likely, this means that fans will no longer have to wait years upon years for the bouts we’ve wanted.
Yes, Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua will be forced to happen, with Amazon dumping much money into the PBC. Look for concrete details to emerge about the entire deal in the coming weeks.
‼️ Al Haymon's PBC are reportedly now “very, very close” to a boxing broadcast deal with Amazon Prime after Showtime announced that they are set to leave the sport at the end of this year. [According to @ArielHelwani]
