Dana White-produced Boxing reality show debuts this Thursday


Recommended Posts

The LA Times reports on a new reality television show about boxers produced by Dana White. The 8 episode season debuts Thursday nights on the Discovery Channel.



“The Fighters” focuses on the fight scene in Boston where White grew up. The reality show is said to be different than other boxing reality shows in that it is more “gritty.” This likely means it will show more than just the glamorous life of being in the ring and the fame that comes with it. The show will feature boxing trainer Peter Welch and his gym in South Boston.





I am always interested in new sports-related reality shows and the preview looks like something with promise. It’s not clear whether White will be on the show but the concept is interesting. I’d rather this not be a gimmicky tournament show but more of a “behind the scenes” type show focusing more on human interest stories which should appeal to a broader audience. We will see if this project will lead to more things outside of MMA with White’s backing.
