Golden Boy opens its ESPN2 slate in prime boxing time, Oscar De La Hoya says – Los Angeles Times

The way Oscar De La Hoya sees it, his company has perfectly timed its entrance into a new cable deal to televise fight cards on ESPN2.

In a month when Barclays Center in New York sold out for the Keith Thurman welterweight title victory over Danny Garcia and nearly 20,000 at Madison Square Garden saw Gennady Golovkin edge Daniel Jacobs to retain his three middleweight belts Saturday, excitement over the sport is heightening, De La Hoya said.

“I’m excited about boxing for 2017. We’ve already had several great fights, with more to come. It’s about time,” said De La Hoya, whose Golden Boy Promotions will stage its debut ESPN2 card Thursday night at Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio.

In the main event, Ireland’s Jason Quigley (12-0, 10 knockouts) will test the value of his unbeaten start when the 25-year-old meets veteran New Jersey product Glen Tapia (23-3, 15 KOs).
