Amir Khan and Devon Alexander are set to fight on December 13 on Showtime, on the same night Timothy Bradley squares off against Diego Chaves on HBO. When two opposing networks air a bout at the same time, its statistically proven to drop ratings significantly.
De La Hoya told Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, “[Airing both fights at the same time] couldn’t be avoided, so there will be different start times. I’ve talked to HBO about it. I’ve talked to [Top Rank president] Todd duBoef about it. I’ve talked to Showtime. We have so many dates and so many fighters, this couldn’t be avoided, but the good thing is, we’re giving the fans a great show and that’s the most important thing.”
