UCN Week in Review – MayPac, PBC-CBS, GGG
The three hottest story lines in boxing came to a head all in the same week. The week began with Al Haymon making a multiplatform deal with CBS and Showtime for his Premier Boxing Champions, then the announcement for the fight of the century when Floyd finally announced his May 2nd showdown with Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas. The week ended with Gennady “GGG” Golovkin continuing his dominance and global rise as boxing’s next great superstar.
