Hall of Fame boxing announcer Al Bernstein will serve as play by play announcer and host of the telecast of the Four State Franchise Boxing Show on Saturday, May 30 at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma. The syndicated broadcast will air on over the air television stations and on Cox cable throughout a number of Midwest states including Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.
Joining Al on the broadcast as color commentator will be former World Lightweight Champion Sean O’Grady. Al said: “It will be great to work with Sean again—he is one of great ambassadors for the sport and a wonderful guy. I also love switching over to do play by play and host shows, so this will be extra fun. The Buffalo Run has a great tradition of excellent boxing shows and this new series will be no exception. I look forward to doing the telecast and getting a chance to interact with the boxing fans at this event.”
