April 18, 2024

Fuse Media has expanded its sports portfolio with a partnership between six-division, 10-time World Champion and current Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions and the El Rey Rebel FAST Channel to air some of the most memorable fights in recent history as part of a new Friday Night Fights series launching on the channel on May 3rd.

Kicking off Cinco De Mayo weekend, the new weekly series premieres on the 21st anniversary of the bruising May 3rd 2003 fight between the Golden Boy himself, De La Hoya, and Luis Ramon ‘Yori Boy’ Campas. Rounding out the special double-header launch that evening is the classic 2009 matchup featuring Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton.

Other historic contests in the weekly series will include Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Ricky Hatton (2007); Manny Pacquiao vs Marco A. Barrera (2007); and Saul Alvarez vsJosesito Lopez (2012).
In addition, El Rey Rebel’s Friday Night Fights series will feature events from Fuse Media’s other sports television partnerships with Hispanic Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) sports franchise Combate Global MMA and BYB Bare Knuckle Fighting.
“The early part of the 21st century was a golden era of boxing across a number of weight divisions and fans can now go back in time to rewatch some of the best fighters of that time,” said De La Hoya. “Casual and boxing hardcores alike always tuned in when three guys named Pacquiao, Mayweather and De La Hoya were fighting and now they’ll have an opportunity to see all three in their prime on Friday Night Fights.”
“We couldn’t be more excited that 10-time world champion Oscar De La Hoya and his Golden Boy Promotions are bringing some of the most epic fights in modern boxing history to El Rey Rebel,” added Miguel Roggero, Chairman and CEO of Fuse Media. “With these thrilling matches, Friday Night Fights will be a cornerstone franchise for El Rey Rebel, unleashing the types of raw emotion and adrenaline that the channel’s growing number of viewers are craving.”
