WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has joined the broadcast team for CBS Sports Network’s new monthly professional boxing series titled Knockout Night at The D, which officially launches Saturday night, March 12, at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.
JR – who will be the main play-by-play commentator – will be joined by Al Bernstein who will be handling color commentary. Former world featherweight champion Kevin “Flushing Flash” Kelley will conduct post fight and celebrity interviews.
“I am beyond excited to have this opportunity to broadcast big time, world-class boxing from the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas,” Ross remarked. “Working with Boxing Hall of Famer Al Bernstein, the best analyst in the game, and with the ’Flushing Flash’, Kevin Kelley, equates to a unique broadcasting trifecta. Ring the bell…it’s Slobber Knocker time!”
Eight Knockout Night at the D events are planned in 2016.
Jim Ross will be hosting a private sold out event for Wrestling-Online.com on Saturday, April 2, in the morning at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas.
