WAPA America Steps Into Ring With World Boxing Championships

With an emphasis on fighters from the Caribbean, WAPA America this week will air two hours of matches nightly from the World Boxing Championships from Milan.
In partnership with Universal Sports, WAPA America will present the amateur boxing action in Spanish from Sept. 8 through Sept. 13 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. The channel, which carries the best programming of WAPA-TV, Puerto Rico's leading broadcast network, will use sports anchor Rafael Bracero and Jose Sanchez, sports reporter for El Nuevo Dia, Puerto Rico's largest newspaper, to call the matches, presented on a one-day delay basis.

Among the guests scheduled to appear on the Sept. 8 telecast are Puerto Rico's Secretary of Sports & Recreation Henry Newman and world champion Juanma Lopez.
For its part, Universal Sports in October will showcase encore presentations and packages from the competition, which began on Sept. 1 in Milan's Mediolanum Forum, and is sanctioned by the AIBA.
WAPA-TV is a portfolio company of Leo Hindery's private equity firm InterMedia Partners, which is a joint venture partner with NBC Universal in Universal Sports.

In Puerto Rico, WAPA is the affiliate for Universal Sports, with its digital multicast channel WAPA2 carrying the Olympic sports service.
