Gervonta Davis and Errol Spence Jr. lead the way as Showtime confirms an extensive lineup of events from now until July.
Today, SHOWTIME Sports and Premier Boxing Champions announced nine boxing events across the first half of 2022, featuring some of the sport’s most accomplished and dynamic stars in highly competitive matchups.
The lineup pits champions against champions and top contenders against top contenders to form a most ambitious schedule.
The robust lineup includes:
Nine marquee events across five months featuring 21 undefeated fighters.
Two world championship unification bouts. One for all four world title belts and the coveted title of Undisputed Champion.
Plus, one for three world title belts. Seven world championship matches with at least 13 world title belts at stake and three world title eliminators.
All of the top-six ranked super welterweights fighting in seven weeks.
Several pivotal crossroads battles from super bantamweight to super middleweight also feature, with an average of two events per month through July.
GERVONTA DAVIS & ERROL SPENCE JR
The massive schedule features the sport’s biggest stars: Errol Spence, Jr., Gervonta “Tank” Davis, Jermell Charlo, David Benavidez, and Jermall Charlo.
There are also 18 fighters aged 27 years and younger, including unified world champion Stephen Fulton, Jr., and highly regarded, undefeated welterweight contender Jaron “Boots” Ennis.
With this emphasis on youth and kingmaking, SHOWTIME Sports and Premier Boxing Champions are well-positioned to carry the sport into the future.
Other high-stakes matches will be announced as individual fight cards fill out.
Stephen Espinoza, President of Sports and Event Programming, said: “It’s a good time to be a boxing fan and SHOWTIME viewer with so many high-level, consequential matchups on our schedule.
“We continue to grow the sport at every level. We grow from our grassroots SHOBOX series to crowning unified and undisputed champions across boxing’s deepest divisions.
“You have to consider the competitive nature of these fights and the star power of fighters. Errol Spence, Jr., ‘Tank’ Davis, David Benavidez, the Charlo brothers, and the youthful vitality of Stephen Fulton, Jr., Jaron Ennis, and Brandun Lee, it’s never been clearer that SHOWTIME is the destination for the most compelling fights.
“It will be for years to come. This SHOWTIME Boxing lineup is hands down the most potent of any network or platform in 2022.”
