TVA Sports and promotional firm Eye of the Tiger Management (EOTTM) have extended their boxing galas broadcast agreement for another three years, it was announced on Monday.
The agreement, initially signed in 2018, will allow boxing enthusiasts from Quebec to continue to follow the performances of the Quebec pugilists of EOTTM, in particular Steven Butler, Simon Kean and Yves Ulysse junior, as well as the rising stars Lexson Mathieu and Arslanbek Makhmudov .
This renewed partnership thus provides for the broadcasting of three EOTTM boxing galas per year on TVA Sports, including at least one at the Videotron Center in Quebec. In addition, it will allow complementarity between EOTTM’s online webcasting service and TVA Sports television broadcasting.
“TVA Sports is delighted to extend its partnership with EOTTM, with whom we have had great success in recent years,” said TVA Sports CEO Louis-Philippe Neveu in a press release. “The history of boxing in Quebec is very rich and fans have always attended important galas, testifying to the continued interest of Quebecers in the sport.”
“I am very happy and proud to continue to build a dream team with our longtime partner and thus continue this fruitful relationship with a long term contract. I am convinced that our tigers will shine under the lights of TVA Sports ”, for his part mentioned the President of EOTTM, Camille Estephan.
In recent years, TVA Sports has notably recorded audiences of up to an average of over 300,000 viewers for duels involving Kean.
The dates of the next EOTTM boxing galas presented live on TVA Sports will be announced at a later date.
