    Big Knockout Boxing debuts tonight...

    http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-...816-story.html

    "BKB stages fights of two-minute rounds, scheduled — but not expected to last — seven rounds. The fighting is done inside a 17-foot-diameter circle without ropes. If a boxer is knocked out of the circle, or steps out of it, he suffers a one-point deduction, intensifying his own pursuit of a knockout."

    Don't think it's a debut, unless you're meaning just in Las Vegas. They had a special on the Audience Network (DirecTV) several months back that I recorded. I fast-forwarded through most of it; didn't think the skill on display was very high level. Kind of like the early days of the UFC where you had untrained guys filling slots and embarrassing themselves.

    The writer of the article referred to it as a debut ("The creators of Big Knockout Boxing, a venture primarily funded by DirecTV that debuts Saturday night with a pay-per-view card at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.")

    Was that one on pay per view?

    This one seems to be getting more press, at least to me, because it has Vera and Rosado in it.

    I assume this is the first event with Binkow...who left Golden Boy Promotions after the DLH/Schaefer blow up.
