Fox aired the first episode of its reality show The Next Great Champ on Tuesday night. The show's format calls for the lowest-rated boxer to call out one of the top three, with the one-hour show culminating in a four-round bout that eliminates the loser from future episodes. The big winner in episode one was Chicago's David Pareja who defeated Arsenio Reyes and pocketed $35,000, a figure higher than world-class boxers get for ESPN-level main events. Reyes, from Florida, had a pro record of 3-0 coming in (according to Fox's website), while Pareja was making his pro debut. Pareja earned $10,000 by winning a sit-up contest and an additional $25,000 for winning his bout, which he was awarded by unaimous decision. The rules of the show provide that the higher-rated boxer gets $25,000 if he wins his bout while the lower-rated boxer competes for survival only.
