SHOWTIME Sports® will replay last Saturday's remarkable year-end action-packed SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® telecast twice-Tuesday, Dec. 17 (10 p.m. ET/PT, SHOWTIME EXTREME®); and again on Tuesday, Dec. 24 (10 p.m. ET/PT, SHOWTIME EXTREME®). The telecast also is available at SHOWTIME ON DEMAND® and will be available via mobile devices on SHOWTIME ANYTIME®.
The event was promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Leija*Battah Promotions and emanated from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Perhaps the only thing missing during Saturday's stirring four-fight telecast was a post-fight reaction from the usually loquacious Broner. SHOWTIME cameras caught up with Broner after the telecast ended, and the interview will be included on the SHOWTIME EXTREME replays.
In the co-feature, undefeated Keith Thurman retained his WBA Interim Welterweight title with a sensational ninth-round stoppage over tough-as-nails Jesus Soto Karass in a Knockout of the Year candidate. The always-exciting Leo Santa Cruz kept his WBC Super Bantamweight belt with a unanimous decision over determined Cesar Seda in a 12-round slugfest. And WBA Light Heavyweight Champion Beibut Shumenov made an emphatic statement with an impressive third-round TKO over Slovakia's Tomas Kovacs.
