White producing boxing series 'The Fighters'


Dana White is the the most well-known and most successful MMA promoter in history, but he started in boxing. It looks like White is getting back to his roots, producing a new reality series for the Discovery Channel along with former TUF producer Craig Piligian:

White told MMAFighting.com on Thursday that the show will premiere on Discovery Channel in 2014 "for sure," however, no specific date has been finalized.

He declined to disclose the format of the show and how many episodes will air in a season. It will, however, only feature boxing, White said.

"The Fighters" represents a return to White's boxing roots. The teaser clip, which he tweeted Thursday afternoon, suggests the show will take place in South Boston, which is where White used to live and also manage a boxing gym. It also features a long-time friend and former business partner of White's, trainer Peter Welch.
