The success of the initial season of the NUVOtv original reality series “Knockout” spawned a second look. On July 8th, 2015 at 10pm ET we will be introduced to nine fighters split into three groups led by trainers Floyd Mayweather, Sr., “Sugar” Shane Mosley, and John “Iceman” Scully.
All three trainers share the experience of having fought in the ring and led fighters to championships. The team rosters are as follows :
Juan Carlos Velasquez – Featherweight
Hylon Williams, Jr.- Lightweight
Dimar Ortuz- Cruiserweight
Mike Oliver- Featherweight
Raphael Murphy- Cruiserweight
There will also be star power behind the mike as well. Roy Jones, Jr. will host the series which will pit these boxers head-to-head until winners emerge in the three weight classes, Featherweight, Lightweight, and Cruiserweight. The prize is to position oneself as a top WBA contender.
The show will include an all-access look at the trainers as well as the fighters and their back stories. Produced by Steve Marcano Holdings, the show is directed by award winning film and TV director Benny Boom.
