UFC/Endeavor Meet With Haymon Over PBC

PBC, which features both unified world heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr and WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, as well as welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, have lucrative television contracts with both Showtime and FOX Sports, both of which have a complex history with White.
