PBC on Showtime returns for 2021:

MMA isn’t the only combat sport in action this Saturday night—no, sir.

The sweet science of boxing features a three-pack of title fights as Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) begins its 2021 schedule of events on the Showtime premium cable network at 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT this Saturday.

PBC on Showtime: Leo vs. Fulton  originates this week from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT and features four fights all told, including an unaired preliminary bout prior to the start of this week’s broadcast.
