Superfighter founder Stephen Duval said, “We knew we had to launch Superfighter in North America in a major media hot spot and we understood that not everyone could be in New York City on May 22. So, we felt that creating a live video stream of the activities would give all of the important boxing, sports and entertainment media the opportunity to view the proceedings and share in our enthusiasm for and excitement about this unique series in professional prizefighting.”
