MSG NETWORK TO RE-TELECAST WBA HEAVYWEIGHT WORLD TITLE BOUT:

ALEXANDER POVETKIN VS. CEDRIC BOSWELL

Tuesday, January 3 at 8:00 p.m.

Legendary Trainer Freddie Roach Joins the Broadcast Team

New York, NY (December 30, 2011) – MSG Network will ring in the New Year with a special re-telecast of the WBA Heavyweight world title bout between Alexander Povetkin versus Cedric Boswell. The fight, which originally aired on EPIX, will debut on MSG Network on Tuesday, January 3 at 8:00 p.m.

Undefeated heavyweight Povetkin scored an eighth round knockout of Boswell to successfully defend his WBA heavyweight title on December 3 at the Hartwell Arena in Helsinki, Finland. Boswell, after 17 years as a professional boxer, finally got his world title shot, but after suffering an injured shoulder early in the fight he eventually fell to the increasing pressure and barrage of punches from the Russian champion in the eighth round. The fight was Povetkin’s first defense of his WBA title.

Povetkin improved to 23-0 (16 KOs), while Boswell (35-2, 26 KOs) lost for the first time since 2003.

The broadcast team consists of former MSG boxing broadcaster and current WNBC sports reporter Bruce Beck, ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael and legendary trainer Freddie Roach, who called the original EPIX broadcast from the MSG Network studios.
