Tonight’s NBC Sports Network Fight Night heavyweight clash between, rising star Bryant Jennings of Philadelphia and Tonga’s tough Bowie Tupou is set to be re-telecast at 1 A.M. ET (10 P.M. Pacific) following tonight’s PPV clash between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. Jennings puts his USBA heavyweight title on the line in this 12-round main event battle.
“This is going to be a big night for boxing fans,” said promoter Kathy Duva of Main Events. “While we recognize that millions of people will watch the Pacquiao-Marquez fight live, we want to get the word out to all of those who forget to use their DVR’s to cover both events that they can catch all of tonight’s action from Philadelphia by tuning into NBC Sports Network’s 1 A.M. replay after the big PPV event is over.”
The NBC Sports Network Fight Night show will originally air at 10 P.M. ET with a compelling 10-round junior lightweight crossroads fight between Philadelphia’s Eric Hunter, who puts his 16-2, 9 K0s record on the line against Jerry Belmontes, of Corpus Christi, TX, who is 17-0, 5 K0s.
