FOX Sports and Golden Boy Promotions announced Monday that they reached a multi-media rights extension to televise live boxing in the United States and internationally. The new multi-year agreement keeps Golden Boy Promotions' bouts with FOX Sports and helps establish a new Monday night boxing franchise on FOX's national multi-sport cable channel, which launches Aug. 17. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. FOX Sports has exclusive domestic rights to 48 live two-hour events annually, primarily on Monday nights. FS1 is planning 24 live events per year, with Fox Deportes -- a Spanish-language sports network -- airing all 48 events live. COLLEGE FOOTBALL ---The University of Miami is passing the buck regarding its motion to dismiss the Nevin Shapiro case, according to a report filed by the NCAA's enforcement department. CBS Sports obtained parts of the 42-page report, which read: "From the enforcement's staff perspective the motion to dismiss by the institution and involved individuals are attempts to deflect attention from the significant allegations that remain in the case." SKIING ---FOX Sports announced that former gold medal downhill skier Picabo Street will join the network as an analyst for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. She will provide analysis for all the men's and women's skiing events, and contribute to daily commentary before and during the Games as part of Fox's TV, internet and radio coverage.
