"Hold Nothing Back!" -- presented by Xyience, Inc. in association with Sports and Entertainment Media, Inc. (SEMI) -- will be broadcast live in North America on cable and satellite PPV beginning at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT. The event is being produced and distributed for North American Pay Per View by Integrated Sports and will be available in more than 50-million homes in the United States and Canada via InDemand, TVN, DirecTV & Dish Network in the US and Viewer's Choice & Bell ExpressVu in Canada. The suggested retail price for the PPV telecast is only $24.95.
Tompkins will be the blow-by-blow announcer, while Bernstein and Hill serve as color commentators, with Benny Ricardo the ringside reporter. Col. Bob Sheridan will handle the blow-by-blow announcing for the International feed; Felix Clavelo broadcasts in Spanish.
"We're proud to have assembled an all-star cast of announcers for the 'Hold Nothing Back!' pay-per-view event," commented Ritch Danner, SEMI Director of Operations. "Virgil will be doing much more than announcing at ringside. He'll be scouting Kenny Keene as a potential opponent for his WBA cruiserweight title. Based on the July 29th turnout, Hill-Keene could be held later this year in Boise."
Jones (49-4, 38 KOs), five-time world champion in four different weight classes, makes his much-anticipated comeback after 10 months of ring inactivity against Prince Badi (25-2-1, 14 KOs), rated No. 6 by the World Boxing Council and No. 7 by the World Boxing Organization.
In other pay-per-view matches, Idaho icon Kenny "The Emmett Eliminator" Keene (51-3, 28 KOs) fights former International Boxing Federation champion "King" Arthur Williams (42-14-1, 29 KOs) in a 10-round Special Cruiserweight Attraction; ex-IBF light heavyweight champion William "KO King" Guthrie (33-3-2, 26 KOs), of Palm Beach Gardens (FL), takes on Luke Munsen (19-5, 13 KOs), fighting out of Spokane (WA), in a 12-round title bout for the vacant IBF International cruiserweight belt.
