Lemieux-N’Dam fight picked up by obscure network, FS2 for June 20th
Eye of the Tiger Management and Golden Boy Promotions in association with King Sports Worldwide announced a television broadcast deal for the vacant IBF Middleweight World Championship match-up between David Lemieux and number one contender Hassan N’Dam. The problem is that the fight will be on FOX Sports 2 and FOX Deportes on June 20 at 10:00 p.m. ET from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada, a network that not many fight fans may know exists, let alone has.
The card will be a triple header with Cuban heavyweight Luis “King Kong” Ortiz in the eight-round televised opener and Dierry “All In” Jean of Quebec, Canada will face Jerry “The Corpus Christi Kid” Belmontes of Corpus Christi, Texas in a 10-round fight for the NABF Lightweight title.
