Nick Cannon, award winning actor, comedian, multi-media mogul, TV and radio show host, and perhaps most importantly of all, husband to Mariah Carey, takes his announcing skills to the boxing ring as the official ring announcer for the highly anticipated Andre Ward vs. Chad Dawson World Championship showdown, set to take place September 8 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California and televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.
Cannon, CEO of NCredible Entertainment who can currently be seen weekly on NBC’s hit talent show “America’s Got Talent” as well as heard on his own nationally syndicated weekend Top 40 Countdown radio show, ‘Cannon’s Countdown’ is thrilled to be bringing his on-air “emcee” skills to sports fans in the arena and watching worldwide.
“As a huge fight fan and follower of the sport, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be the ring announcer and introduce these two incredible fighters to the fans at Oracle Arena and everyone watching LIVE at home on HBO,” said Cannon. “It’s going to be an unforgettable event.”
Fight fans should be able to recall many recent high profile matches with Nick Cannon shown sitting ringside and taking in the action. So, for Ward vs. Dawson, he’ll get an even better seat, and get to be part of the event as well.
