AL BERNSTEIN CELEBRATES PPV ANNIVERSARY

PhilBoxing.com


When Hall Of Fame boxing broadcaster Al Bernstein serves as ringside analyst on the May 4 SHOWTIME Pay-Per-View telecast of Floyd Mayweather vs. Robert Guerrero he will celebrate a significant milestone. It will mark 30 years since he did his first major pay per view match in 1983—Marvin Hagler vs. Roberto Duran.

In those 30 years Al has also called PPV matches featuring the likes of Sugar Ray Leonard, Tommy Hearns, Manny Pacquiao, Evander Holyfield, George Foreman, Mike Tyson, Miguel Cotto and many other champions. Now reigning pound for pound champion Floyd Mayweather joins the list. “It’s exciting to get to chronicle the final portion of Floyd’s career,” Al said. He added, “This fight with Robert Guerrero starts his final push to complete his career undefeated and add to his boxing legacy. Guerrero presents an intriguing challenge to Mayweather because of Robert’s innate toughness, bruising style and the fact that he is a lefty.”


Bernstein also said he believes this fight is the center of a boxing “storm” of great fights that may end up making this a banner year for the sport. Al explained the year this way: “We have seen several fight of the year candidates already in 2013 and scores of other great fights. There are at least a half dozen potentially superb matches already scheduled for the coming months, and more will be added. 2013 has the earmarks of being one of boxing’s best in the last decade.”
