NBC / Versus Back in Boxing?

Ok, after technical glitches prevented me from updating the blog yesterday, I’m back. The big news is that it looks like Main Events and NBC / Versus is on the verge of announcing a six fight deal to televise boxing in 2012.

The word is that the license fees will be in the six-figures and some of the fights will be on NBC. Best part about this deal is that the fights just wont feature those from Kathy Duva’s small roster of boxers, but other companies.

To me, this is the best way to go. I’ve seen too many deals( like the one Versus struck with Top Rank a few years ago) where quality control became a problem as Top Rank showcased Tye Fields, one too many times. The hope is that this is just a launching point and that NBC decides to make a bigger commitment to boxing and that other networks follow suit.
