New York, NY (May 2, 2018) DIBELLA ENTERTAINMENT has announced their upcoming BROADWAY BOXING event on Saturday, May 5 will be streamed live on DBE’s new home for streaming, LIVE.DBE1.COM, powered by the SportsLive OTT service as part of a partnership with CBS Sports Digital. Through the partnership, all Broadway Boxing events and a range of other live boxing content will be streamed globally at DBE1.com.
The entire 10-bout card originating from the Fox Theatre at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut is available across the world for $6.95. Fans can purchase the event immediately by visiting live.dbe1.com.
The show begins at 6 PM ET and is headlined by the highly anticipated United States debut of undefeated and world ranked junior welterweight “FEROCIOUS” GEORGE KAMBOSOS JR, (13-0-0, 7 KO’s) of Sydney, Australia battling JOSE “EL TIGRE” FORERO, (13-6-1, 11 KO’s) of San Francisco, Panama in a scheduled ten rounder.
“DBE’s vision is to bring world class Broadway Boxing events to fans around the world and that is why I am so excited to enter into this partnership with CBS Sports Digital and their SportsLive OTT service,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “The USA debut of a future world champion like George Kambosos is a major event and I expect it to resonate from America all the way back to Australia.”
World ranked #5 by the WBA and #11 by the WBO, the 24-year-old Kambosos is hitting the America shores following a ninth-round knockout of Krai Setthaphon on October 13, 2017 in his native Australia. He is training in Los Angeles under the guidance of a fellow Australian transplant: former heavyweight contender, Justin Fortune.
Also fighting for the first time in the United States, Forero is returning to action following a hotly contested 12-round decision loss to Ibrahim Class in Hangelsberg, Germany on July 1, 2017. The 20-bout veteran lost a razor thin majority decision to former super featherweight champion, Jezreel Corrales, in 2011.
The Kambosos vs. Forero bout will not begin before 9 PM ET in order to accommodate fans in Australia.
