Top Rank And ESPN Have A History – And Future – Of Bouts With Clout

Dan Riccio, ESPN’s associate manager of programming, previews Top Rank's big names coming to ESPN this Saturday and in 2020

Saturday in New York’s Madison Square Garden, the historic “Mecca of Boxing,” will once again host Top Rank on ESPN for a live presentation of a special tripleheader headlined by pound-for-pound undefeated king, Terence “Bud” Crawford (35-0, 26 KOs), defending his WBO welterweight world title against mandatory challenger, Egidijus “Mean Machine” Kavaliauskas (21-0-1, 17 KOs).

Front Row caught up with Dan Riccio, ESPN’s associate manager of programming, one of the executives leading ESPN’s combat sports strategy and who has played an integral role in driving ESPN’s relationship with Top Rank.

Jon McLeod and Santa Brito produced the video.
