'The Next Great Champ' (2004)

FOX rushed this copycat boxing competition series, fronted by Oscar de la Hoya, onto the air in the fall of 2004 to get ahead of NBC's similar show "The Contender" (which was announced first but didn't debut until early '05). Neither series managed any kind of decent ratings, so maybe "Next Great Champ" did its job. It was KO'd in the ratings, though, lasting only a couple episodes before being shipped to Fox Sports Net to play out the string.
