MANHATTAN, N.Y. - May 22, 2015 - PRLog -- Xtreme Breakdancing Sports Inc., producers of World Bboy Battle™, the world’s premier extreme breakdancing sports league, announced today its partnership with ESPN to deliver its 2015 season on ESPN3.

“It was important for us to partner with the worldwide leader in sports to broadcast our Bboy sports competitions to over 85 million homes. Working with ESPN3 makes it easier for fans who want to watch exciting and engaging extreme breakdancing sports action across their digital devices and television,” said XBS President Frank “Sirswift” Hernandez, creator of WBB and former pro Bboy pioneer who danced and tour with RUN DMC and Africa Bambattaa back in the 80’s during the birth of Hip Hop.

“World Bboy Battle™ is a very important sports league which gives fans the opportunity to see their heroes in action as well as emerging stars who can be the future of extreme breakdancing sports.”

Following in the footsteps of UFC and Street League Skateboarding, World Bboy Battle™ was created to help pro Bboy athletes achieve their dreams and earn a living from Bboy sports while showcasing their gravity defying floor routines to high energy breaking music in an action-packed, extreme breakdancing sports format for memorable sports entertainment experiences mainstream millennials can enjoy.

The World Bboy Battle™ 2015 Pro Bboy Sports Championship Season is scheduled to begin in August in New York City where the historic World Bboy Battle #1 took place.  Competitions will run each month thereafter and conclude at the annual championship event in December to determine the 2015 Champion. ESPN3 will deliver all 5 monthly competitions totaling over 30 hours of sports programming including qualifiers and main events. World Bboy Battle™ plans to award over $150,000 in total cash prizes to its winners during the 2015 season, the largest cash prizes in extreme breakdancing sports history.

Competitions are 2-day events showcasing the world’s best Bboy athletes qualifying in day one and competing for the grand cash prize as much as $25,000 in the main event on day two. Two hosts, live DJ’s, three judges, a referee, and two commentators provide play-by-play, replays and color commentary duties throughout the battles. In-competition interviews add audience engagement and half-time music performances from talented artists add gala and concert to each event. Dates and locations to be announced.

In comparison to ABC’s America’s Best Dance Crew which averaged over 2 million viewers for each episode, over 1 million viewers are projected to tune in to watch the World Bboy Battle 2015 Season on ESPN3, a very conservative projection. Eli Rosenberg from the NY Daily News may very well be on point when his article “Bring home the breakin” mentioned that World Bboy Battle™ could be the next “breakout sport”.
