Every sports fan dreams of the day they may get a chance to talk to their favorite athletes. Lucky for boxing fans, that day begins tomorrow and continues through Thursday.
Goldenboy Promotions has teamed up with CraveOnline, RingTV, UStream and Yahoo! to bring fans a live online broadcast hosted by RingTV's Doug Fischer. Doug will be sitting down with "Action Heroes" fighters, Guerrero, Katsidis and Malignaggi, as they break down their experiences in their most classic past fights.
The famous fights will be streamed live with commentary by Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero, Michael Katsidis “The Great” and Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi, including the opportunity for fans to live chat with the fighters!
“This is one of my favorite new projects and I wish technology like this was available back when I was a kid,” said Oscar de la Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions. “Can you imagine hearing Muhammad Ali or Roberto Duran talk about their greatest fights while you watched with them during a fight week? I’m very excited about the ‘Classics’ Live Web Stream and giving fans the opportunity to watch a fight while hearing commentary from their favorite fighters as well as interacting with them.”
During the broadcasts, Fischer will present questions submitted by fans through Twitter, Facebook and Ustream, giving them the once in a life time opportunity to chat live with some of boxing’s top stars.
Opportunities like this DO NOT come up often, so be sure to take advantage this sure-to-be-amazing experience!
