"When we started Golden Boy, we made a promise to only do business with the best companies out there," said De La Hoya, president of Golden Boy Promotions. "To be partnered with Fox on this sensational series is a great fit. We look forward to working with Fox Sports 1 for years to come in giving fans the best boxing matches available."
