Press Release: The Undercard App is all set to have their debut broadcast this Saturday, September 8th at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. They have now officially announced their broadcast team.The team will be lead by color analyst and longtime boxing insider Rick Glaser and blow by blow commentator Chris Henderson, as well as on site correspondent Ricardo Mohamed.
Glaser, has been in the industry for well over two decades and worked beside some of the biggest names in the sport including a huge chunk right beside the legendary Don King. His stories about the sport are stuff of legend. Here’s a few things he had to say in regards to the announcement;
“I’ve said the apps were the future of the sport. First it was ESPN with their app, then DAZN made their announcement. The Undercard App is actually debuting before DAZN. They’re having their first show on September 22nd and we’re having ours at The Undercard on September 8th.” Said Glaser.
“Going forward, I’m excited, I’m excited to be working with quality people, this great team. I believe this is something that will do very well as boxing enthusiasts should enjoy it.”
Glaser is well known for speaking his mind. He’s not one to pull many punches and says he won’t be pulling any now.
“I’m gonna show the same straightforward approach that I’ve always displayed on various podcasts, Facebook and any other time. It’s just the way I am.”
Henderson, a contributor to many platforms such as ESPN Radio, The CounterPunch Show and currently the Director of FightZoneNews.com, is known for his no nonsense unbiased approach.
“I’ve known Michael Cameron for some time now and watched him progress through the sport itself as a manager, when he first approached me with this idea I thought ‘Man the sport really needs this for the prospects and for overall exposure of all fighter’s, not just the Floyd Mayweather’s or Canelo Alvarez’. As far as working side by side with Glaser, I’m gonna love it! We don’t always see eye to eye but hey a little debate is great, right? Me and Rick have always debated with maturity and I’m sure we’ll bring you the best boxing broadcast you can find, period. A New Yorker and a Georgia guy? Yeah we’ll have a blast and I can’t wait! “
“I’d also like to thank Michael and Kyle for this opportunity to be apart of their vision.” said Henderson.
Mohamed, a former amateur, was trained at the Windy City Boxing Gym on Chicago’s south side by the late Mr. Clarence Griffin who was the father of the former 2x Light Heavyweight Champion of the World and 1992 Barcelona Olympian, Montell “ICE” Griffin. In 1983, Ricardo left Chicago to join the United States Army where he was he was stationed at Scholfield Barracks, Hawaii. One of the highlights of his military career at this duty station was boxing for the 25th Infantry Division Pacific Command.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of the UNDERCARD APP!! I look forward to interviewing the up and coming talents of boxing and future World Champions to be! I would like to take time to thank My man Michael Cameron for such a great opportunity and believing in me and my work to have made this possible for me, I would like to also thank Kyle Lyles and all parties involved for voting me in. I’ve been Montell Griffin’s Publicist pretty much since he turned pro in 92! I have also been David “ The American Dream” Reid’s as well. I come to “The UnderCard “ with experience as a fighter, a Publicist & a Boxing manager, so I know exactly what probing questions to ask the fighters during their one on one with me, I also cover talking points on their personal lives outside the ring and all the other accolades they have accomplished outside the square! These are things fans want to know about their favorite fighters. I truly believe that this App “The UnderCard” will definitely reshape the future of the sport of boxing and introduce to all boxing fans the best thing they could have ever hoped for. In closing I think the entire “UnderCard” App staff and our supporters. “ LETS GO UNDERCARD!”
With the team announced, the upcoming card at the Showboat set, and Rising Star Promotions and The Undercard App ready to go, let’s do this! We’ll see y’all live from Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 8th!
