The Queensbury Boxing League have confirmed today that they have signed an exciting distribution agreement with one of Asia’s leading sports broadcasters the All Sports Network to broadcast their UK based boxing events into multiple Asian markets.
Launched back in 2010 by former English Welterweight champion Ross Minter and promotional partner Alan Foley as a new boxing platform for British based boxers outside of the amateur and professional ranks to compete in, the league has firmly established itself over the last eighteen months as an exciting alternative to the more established organisations.
The deal with ASN who are recognised throughout Asia as one of the biggest providers of premium sporting events including the pinnacle of the American Football season the Super Bowl and also the Stanley Cup, will see all six of the promotions main event shows from their 2012 season broadcast into millions of homes across some of Asia’s biggest territories including China, India, Thailand and the Philippines.
“This is a fantastic coup for the league and it’s a massive step towards establishing the Queensbury’s exciting brand of boxing on a big international stage which we are very excited about, “ commented Queensbury’s head of promotions Alan Foley.
“I think the league’s action packed format coupled with the shorter rounds and highly competitive contests seems to have established a winning formula here in the UK with both ardent boxing fans and casual observers, and I’m sure once its exposed to ASN’s viewers they will really embrace the league’s format”
With the league already in possession of a broadcast deal with British Eurosport who are currently showing their 2012 season of boxing the show looks set to cement its position as a new force on both the British boxing scene and potentially to a much wider audience.
