GCP Announces Multi-Fight Deal with CBS Sports Network

GREG Cohen Promotions (GCP) announces a multi-fight deal with CBS Sports Network to telecast live professional boxing.

“Championship Boxing” will debut on CBS Sports Network on April 17 at 10:00 PM, ET at the Grand Casino in Hinckley, Minnesota.

In the ten round main event, Ireland’s WBA #12 and IBF #11 rated Dennis Hogan (20-0-1, 7 KOs) will face Philadelphia’s hard-punching Tyrone Brunson (22-4-1, 21 KOs) for the WBA Oceania Championship.

In the televised co-feature, Canada’s world rated and fast-rising lightweight star Tony “Lightning” Luis (19-2, 7 KOs) will make the first defense of his WBC Continental Americas Championship.

“I am extremely proud to be unveiling this series with CBS Sports Network,” said Greg Cohen. “This is a huge next step in the evolution of GCP. This is going to be a great year for televised boxing and it’s an honour to be working with such a prestigious television partner to make it happen.”

CBS Sports Network, the 24 hour home of CBS Sports, is available across the country through local cable, video and telco providers and via satellite on DirecTV Channel 221 and Dish Network Channel 158.

“This relationship with CBS Sports Network allows GCP to move to the next level, to deliver our already great shows live into homes across the country and the world.” Said Cohen. “With a strong stable building in Australia, the opportunity to part of this global coverage could be game changer for boxing in that part of the world.”

“GCP has proven a commitment to boxing in Australia, Europe and across Asia,”

“Boxers within all those regions will now get a chance to shine and further their careers on the biggest of stages. We’ve built a strong, professional and hard working team within GCP, it’s going to be a big year as we now have all the pieces in place to add the GCP stamp to an already exciting 2015.”
