“THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP” – HEADLINED BY OSCAR DE LA HOYA – WILL PREMIERE SEPT. 10 on FOX
Twelve aspiring boxers from across the country will lay it all on the line – both in and out of the boxing ring – in the unscripted series THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP airing this fall on FOX. Eight-time World Champion Oscar De La Hoya and television powerhouse Endemol USA have joined forces for a show that will turn young, raw boxers into top prize-fighters.
The hopefuls will push themselves to the limit as they train and slug it out in hopes of winning every fighter’s ultimate dream – a professional contract with De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions and a possible shot at a titleholder.
Each of the 12 fighters will be joined on his journey by someone from his personal life … a wife, girlfriend or family member. That personal relationship will add tension, drama and a first-hand opportunity for viewers to see pugilism through the eyes of a non-boxer.
As the fighters continue their preparations, they’ll undergo a series of workout regimens crafted by legendary professional fighters and trainers – many of whom will appear on the show. Along the way, De La Hoya will be a mentor, friend and motivator to the chosen ones.
Over the course of the series, only those who have what it takes will advance from challenge to challenge, round to round, and fight to fight. The stakes to be the last man standing are high as there can be only one winner — THE NEXT GREAT CHAMP.
