A press conference is scheduled for Wednesday at the NBC Studios building in New York City, where powerful adviser Al Haymon is expected to announce an exclusive output deal with NBC Sports, according to several sources familiar with the details.

The agreement for the boxing series could yield around 24 fight dates involving Haymon’s fighters, several of whom were released from their promotional agreement with Golden Boy Promotions as a result of the company’s settlement with former CEO Richard Schaefer, who resigned after 10 years last June.

Although Golden Boy Promotions has reportedly retained the promotional rights of such high-profile Haymon-advised boxers as Amir Khan, Lucas Matthysse and Leo Santa Cruz, it lost promotional ties to other Haymon fighters, such as RING junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia and Adrien Broner.

Haymon’s top attraction is Floyd Mayweather Jr., who is the world’s highest-paid athlete, and is reportedly close to reaching a deal to face Manny Pacquiao.
