A report by USA Today’s Sergio Non stated that Affliction COO Michael Cohen had indicated that Affliction and Golden Boy Promotions’ Jan. 24 event would be a co-promotion with EliteXC that could possibly be televised on CBS or SHOWTIME.

FiveOuncesOfPain.com contacted Cohen Thursday morning as a followup and we were informed by Cohen that the USA Today report is not accurate.

“The report by Sergio Non is not entirely accurate,” said Cohen. “The way that the statement was supposed to read is that the event we’re concentrating on right now is the Oct. 4 event with CBS, SHOWTIME, and EliteXC.

“The question that was asked of me was ‘We understand that you have a Jan. 24 event that’s being planned as well. Will this event be aired on SHOWTIME or through CBS?’ My answer again to him was, ‘We’re certainly looking forward to a long-standing relationship or an ongoing relationship with CBS and SHOWTIME as well as Elite. But right now we’re concentrating on the Oct. 4 event and have not inked a deal for any future events.’”

umm... how did they dispute it when they said this
"We’re certainly looking forward to a long-standing relationship or an ongoing relationship with CBS and SHOWTIME as well as Elite."
