Default Saturday 12/13 boxing PPV ?

I see that neither HBO or Showtime is promoting this PPV. I'm assuming it's all DKP.

Anyone know who will be doing the announcing?

King shifts into high gear!
By Scott Shaffer
It’s less than a week away from Don King’s “eight on the scene, five on the screen” boxing show in Atlantic City and the 72 year old promoter is operating at a pace that would exhaust most men half his age. King spent the morning in court, where he is defending himself in a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed by ex-champion Terry Norris. During the trial’s lunch break, instead of sitting around and worrying, King headed uptown to announce a deal with Voom, the company that will broadcast the five pay-per-view championship fights on the screen for high density television. King also is dealing with complications to his plan for a two-way hook-up to the troops in Iraq. They can get the satellite signal out to Iraq, but King also wants the broadcast to include shots of the 101st Airborne Division in Mosul, Iraq and there have so far been technical snags requiring his attention. After the press conference, King went back to court for more arguments, but somehow found time to make plans to attend Vice President Dick Cheney’s Christmas party in Washington on Wednesday. After that, its on to Atlantic City, where ticket sales have gone so well that the local pay-per-view blackout has been lifted, allowing Southern Jersey fans to buy the broadcast or attend closed circuit telecasts. King jokingly told Fightnews.com that he has dealt with so many different personalities when putting together the show he calls the greatest of his career from top to bottom that “I deserve the psychiatrist of the year award.”

I just did some digging and have the answer to my own question.

Barry Tompkins will do the play by play with Chris Byrd and James Carville also on the scene.
