LOS ANGELES – When FOX Sports presents its first-ever Pay-Per-View for the Premier Boxing Champions title fight Saturday night, including delivering a full on-site studio show, the production power will be in a weight class all its own.

The main event, live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, matches unbeaten IBF welterweight world champion Errol Spence Jr. (24-0, 21 KOs), defending his title against four-division world champion Mikey Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs).

“We have a history of super-sizing ‘firsts’ at FOX Sports, and our initial Pay-Per-View effort with the PBC will live up to that reputation … and then some,” said Michael Davies, FOX Sports SVP, Field and Technical Operations. “With a fight of this magnitude, in a venue of this scale and status, we will be holding nothing back.

“Our FOX Sports team has a lot of experience coming to this amazing facility, covering Cowboys football,” Davies added. “We are excited to deliver the big-event feel this audience expects.”

With seven Super Motion cameras, SkyCam in the venue and three-axis DynamiCam mini-cable camera flying over the ring, the FOX Sports 22-camera arsenal also features a pair of live digital-cinema units for capturing epic, explosive imagery.

In order to capture the magnitude of an enormous prizefight, ensuring 24’ x 24’ ring doesn’t get lost in the massive stadium, FOX Sports and the PBC are constructing a major lighting package to be used for the show and for the main-event walkouts.

The show features four fights and runs from 9:00 PM ET – 1:00 AM ET on Saturday night. The action gets started at 8:00 PM ET, with preliminary bouts on FS1.

FOX Sports’ New College Football Studio Analyst Reggie Bush Joins THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD

Today on THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD, new FOX Sports college football studio analyst Reggie Bush discussed highlights from his college football career, his relationship with USC, upcoming prospects and more.

On the legendary USC vs. Notre Dame matchup in 2005:

It was one of the only times I actually cried after a game. I just broke down in emotions because we had put so much into that game and everything leading up to it and the way we won. Knowing that was one of the greatest games I had ever played in – I realized that right after the game. There were a lot of great players in that game, obviously Brady Quinn, and it was such a great game.

On his relationship with USC:

USC will always have a special place in my heart because I made so many relationships with players who are still some of my best friends to this day; with coaches who are still some of my best friends to this day; and people who still work at the university who I still talk to. It was a great place for me. It was a great landing spot. It was truly meant to be… There was something intuitive – the feeling in my gut that this is where I was meant to be. I committed right there on the spot. Then fast forward a couple of years and I was able to win the Heisman Trophy and play in a lot of great games. I said in high school that I was going to win a Heisman Trophy, so this wasn’t something that was just on my mind when I got to USC. This was something I had put out into the atmosphere long before that. It is true that words do have power.

On Kyler Murray and his skillset: 

All Kyler Murray’s been told his whole career is that he’s too short and too small – and look at how far he’s gotten to this point. You don’t win the Heisman Trophy, you don’t get drafted in baseball, soon to be the No. 1 pick in football, by not having tremendous leadership and tremendous work ethic… Talk to the people who know him. Talk to his head coach, talk to his family and the players who play with him, because they all say something different. They all say this guy can play and he makes the guys around him better. To me, when I turn on the film, I see a great player regardless of his size.

FOX Sports Unveils Star-Studded College Football Pregame Show Coming this Fall

Hour-Long Program on FOX Features Urban Meyer, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn and Host Rob Stone

NEW YORK – Today, FOX Sports announces plans for its new college football pregame show, featuring some of the biggest names to have played or coached the sport in the last 15 years. Host Rob Stone sits alongside a panel of analysts comprised of three-time national championship coach Urban Meyer, USC legends Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart and record-setting Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn. The one-hour show airs each Saturday during the college football season on the FOX broadcast network beginning Week 1. Today’s announcement was made by Mark Silverman, President, FOX Sports National Networks.

“With a head coach that won three national titles in 10 years, two of the most successful college quarterbacks in recent memory and one of the sport’s most electric running backs, our new college football pregame show has the game covered from all angles,” Silverman said. “Not only will this all-star cast resonate with viewers because of their recent on-field accomplishments, but this group is going to have a lot of fun discussing the games each week.”

Meyer and Bush are new additions to FOX Sports, while Quinn spent the last five seasons calling games for the network. Stone and Leinart have contributed to FOX Sports’ college football coverage since 2013.

“Urban and Reggie will make fantastic additions to our already impressive college football roster, and we’re looking forward to seeing Brady shine in his new role,” Silverman added. “We think that this entire lineup will educate and entertain viewers with the unique FOX attitude that viewers are familiar with.”

One of the sport’s most successful head coaches, Meyer won three national championships – with Florida in 2006 and 2008, and with Ohio State in 2014. At Utah, he coached quarterback Alex Smith to the No. 1 overall NFL Draft Pick and at Florida, coached Tim Tebow to the 2007 Heisman Trophy. A 17-year Division I head coach, Meyer amassed a 187-32 record (.854 win percentage) at the helms of Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State. No stranger to sports television, Meyer worked as a studio analyst for one season with ESPN, in 2011, between positions at Florida and Ohio State.

Bush is one of the most prolific running backs in college football history. In three seasons, he was twice named a consensus All-American and the Pac-10 Player of the Year, and following the 2005 season, in which he averaged an impressive 8.7 yards per carry, he was named the Associated Press College Football Player of the Year and won the Walter Camp and Doak Walker awards. An 11-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl champion as a member of the New Orleans Saints, Bush also works as an analyst on NFL Network and has appeared as a guest on multiple FOX Sports studio shows.

Quinn joined FOX Sports prior to the 2014 season and called a full schedule of college football games with play-by-play partner Joe Davis since 2015. A four-year starting quarterback at Notre Dame, he set numerous records, led the Fighting Irish to two BCS bowl appearances and finished fourth (2005) and third (2006) in the Heisman Trophy voting.

A Heisman Trophy winner and College Football Hall of Famer, Leinart first made appearances on FOX Sports programming in 2013 and moved to the network’s studio desk full-time in 2015. He quarterbacked USC to a BCS title and remains one of the most decorated players in Trojan and college football history.

A multi-sport star for FOX Sports, Stone anchors the network’s college football, college basketball and soccer studio coverage and is the lead play-by-play voice of the Go Bowling! Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour on FOX and FS1. A standout on the Colgate soccer pitch, he was recently inducted into the CT Soccer Hall of Fame.

FOX Sports will announce additional college football coverage information, including its full list of game broadcasters, at a later date.
