Epix joins HBO, Showtime in boxing game

By DAVE SKRETTA, AP Sports Writer
NEW YORK — Move over, HBO. Look out, Showtime.
A new premium cable channel, Epix, is getting into the boxing game.
The year-old network will air Vitali Klitschko’s heavyweight title fight against Odlanier Solis from Cologne, Germany, on Saturday, giving boxing fans in the United States an opportunity to see a fight that might otherwise have been unavailable on television.

“We’re really thrilled to be able to put this fight on this weekend,” Epix president Mark Greenberg said. “The heavyweights have always drawn the casual sports fans, and for Epix, that only launched 15 months ago, this became a great opportunity to explore the boxing world.”
HBO and Showtime helped build their subscriber bases years ago by offering boxing, giving the two premium cable channels sports content that wasn’t available elsewhere.
They’ve since developed into the most lucrative avenue outside pay-per-view for promoters doing big fights, mostly because they’re able to offer the biggest rights fees. But with dates drying up on those two networks, Epix believes it can offer a third option for major fights.
“We think they’re doing a great job of promoting the event,” said Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions, which represents Klitschko and his brother, fellow titleholder Wladimir Klitschko. “It’s going to be a real treat for all the fans in the U.S.”
The heavyweight division has been dominated by the Klitschko brothers recently. Combined with the fact that so few contenders are Americans, it has been quite a while since a title fight found its way to American cable television.
Most of the Klitschkos’ recent fights have been small pay-per-views or streamed online.
Vitali Klitschko’s fight against Solis will air live at 6 p.m. ET on Epix and its website, along with a network replay later Saturday night. Replays will be available on its website and via on-demand afterward, which could also include undercard fights from Germany.
There are even plans to simulcast the fight on video screens in Times Square, giving the network exposure to potentially thousands of additional viewers in New York City.
“We think we have an opportunity to help breath some life into sports, especially boxing and mixed martial arts,” Greenberg said. “We’ll see how this fight does for us. It’s been a great promotional device to get the Epix brand out.”
Epix is a joint venture of Viacom’s Paramount Pictures subdivision, MGM and Lionsgate, with carriage deals on Verizon FiOS, Dish Network and various cable providers, among others. Most of its content comes from a vast library of about 15,000 movies, but there are plans for concerts, documentary films, original series and other programming akin to HBO and Showtime.
A documentary about World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn airs Saturday prior to the fight.
If the blueprint for Epix sounds familiar, it should. Greenberg once worked for HBO as a marketing executive, then spent nearly two decades at Showtime, leading the boxing franchise through high-profile heavyweight fights involving Lennox Lewis, Mike Tyson and others.
He’s hoping the heavyweights can help build Epix, too.
“We announced this venture two years ago, we’ve been on the air a little over a year, and I would say I’ve had every boxing promoter with the exception of one in my office talking about the possibilities,” Greenberg said. “We’ll evaluate what happens this weekend, but I can foresee this being an important part of our mix.”

Vitali Klitschko vs. Odlanier Solis Analysis

Published by Scoop Malinowski | http://www.boxinginsider.com
This could be the most dangerous fight for Vitali Klitschko since the Corrie Sanders fight – and it could be more complicated. Odlanier Solis is such a quality, talented and experienced fighter that he has been able to coast through the heavyweight division with his C game. 

Even though we haven’t seen Solis in 100% top condition in his recent TV fights, we have seen the flashes of brilliance and devastation he is capable of inflicting, like the one-punch KO of Monte Barrett. The Miami-based Cuban is strong as a bull, punches with speed, technique and accuracy. Solis clearly is a tremendous fighter, good enough to win Olympic gold and achieve the #1 WBC ranking, while not even working at full capacity.
I get the sense now that Solis will come in at the best condition of his career and will show an even higher level of excellence than we have ever seen from him as a professional. Solis has to know that this is what it will require to have a chance to defeat Vitali Klitschko.
Klitschko, astonishingly, is still at the top of his game at age 40, but there have been signs of minute decline. The inability to stop the game Shannon Briggs suggest a loss of full snap in the punches of Vitali. Emanuel Steward commented to me regarding the Briggs fight that he noticed that Vitali was not able to put his combinations together as he has in the past. Steward expressed concerns for Vitali about this fight and the different “mental energy” Solis will bring, unlike the recent challengers who competed more like sparring partners looking for a payday. But of course, that is a credit to Vitali and his skills, that he is able to tame and control his opponents in such a manner.
But this time, there is a suspicion that Solis is different from the rest. He is a winner, a champion, who knows how to figure his way out of adversity and overcome it. You have to think Solis will have more ideas and strategies to try to use to solve the seemingly unbeatable style of Vitali Klitschko.
It’s easy to imagine Vitali boxing and jabbing and dissecting and controling the smaller Solis like he has done so many times with other physically disadvantaged challengers. But if any man can change that pattern it’s the explosive and powerful Solis. One perfect punch in the blink of an eye, or a slight loss of reflex, can instantly put Vitali into a position he is unaccustomed to. And then it could be total chaos.
A similar fight that comes to mind was the second round of Lennox Lewis vs. Vitali Klitschko in 2003, when the Vitali right hand staggered Lewis. Until that punch, Lewis had been comfortably dominating the heavyweight division, but that one single Vitali right hand changed everything.
Solis will have to connect that one punch against Vitali if he is to have his chance to make history and end the reign of Vitali Klitschko. Can he? Yes. Will he? I just don’t know.
