Buffer to Serve As Voice of Fight Night Promotional Campaign

First Broadcast of Boxing Match on NBC Since 2004

Main Event Featuring Tomasz Adamek vs. Steve Cunningham

Co-Feature Includes Tor Hamer vs. Vyacheslav Glazkov

NEW YORK – December 12, 2012 – NBC Sports Group and Main Events continue the Fight Night series on December 22 at 4 p.m. ET on NBC, and will feature Hall-of-Fame ring announcer Michael Buffer, who is famous for his “Let’s get ready to rumble” phrase. In addition to serving as ring announcer for the event, Buffer will serve as the voice for NBC’s promotional campaign and tune-in spots leading up to the broadcast.

After six successful Fight Night telecasts on NBC Sports Network, the event on December 22 will air on NBC and become the first boxing broadcast on the network since 2004.

“It’s always great to announce a good fight, but for me, as a fan, it’s even better when it’s an excellent match up like we’re going to see on NBC with Adamek and Cunningham, on December 22nd,” said Buffer.

The main event features current IBF North American Heavyweight Champion Tomasz “Goral” Adamek (47-2, 29 KO’s) of Kearny, N.J. vs. Steve “USS” Cunningham (25-4, 12 KO’s) of Philadelphia, Pa., in a 12-round heavyweight fight at Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pa. The two heavyweights will fight for Adamek’s IBF North American Heavyweight Championship belt and the vacant No. 2 IBF heavyweight position.

In the co-feature, Tor Hamer (19-1, 12 KO’s) of New York, N.Y., steps in to the ring against undefeated Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (13-0, 9 KO’s) of Langansk, Ukraine, in an eight-round heavyweight bout.

NBC Sports Groups’ Fight Night broadcast team of Kenny Rice (play-by-play), Hall-of-Fame boxing trainer Freddie Roach (analyst), cruiserweight contender B.J. Flores (analyst) and Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix (reporter) will call the action.
