 Showtime Thursday outlined its boxing event slate for the next five months, highlighted by its June 27 Gervonta Davis-Mario Barrios super lightweight championship fight.

The Davis-Barrios PPV fight is one of nine fights the network has outlined as part of its live boxing telecast lineup that runs through September. The fight cards feature such marquee fighters as Jermall and Jermell Charlo, Guillermo Rigondeaux, David Benavidez and Nonito Donaire, according to the network. 

Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza said the fights will take place before a live audience, keeping with applicable COVID-19 safety protocols. 

“High-impact, meaningful fights amongst many of the biggest names and brightest stars in combat sports ...that is what Showtime promises and that is what we are delivering,” Espinoza said in a statement. “With an opportunity to crown an undisputed world champion at 154 pounds, a highly anticipated super bantamweight title unification, a stacked pay-per-view showdown and more than a dozen fights between 118-168 pounds, Showtime is presenting boxing’s best young fighters, all daring to be great by putting their world titles and undefeated records on the line.” 

Showtime’s boxing lineup comes amid the network's April launch of the Bellator MMA franchise, offering at least two live MMA cards a month on the network as part of a multi-year agreement.
