ESPN senior writer Dan Rafael has signed a new, multi-year agreement to remain at ESPN as the company’s lead boxing multimedia reporter and columnist.
“Dan is an award-winning boxing authority and one of the most respected and dedicated boxing writers in the industry, and we are thrilled that he will continue to lead our efforts in this time-honored sport,” said Patrick Stiegman, vice president and editorial director of ESPN Digital & Print Media. “Whether he’s breaking news or covering big fights or driving the conversation through his reporting and commentary, Dan continues to distinguish himself among boxing journalists — and we are proud that he will keep building on that legacy at ESPN.”
Under the new agreement, Rafael will continue to serve as boxing writer and analyst for ESPN.com and all digital properties, contribute to ESPN The Magazine, and appear on SportsCenter and other ESPN television and audio shows. He will also collaborate with the network’s boxing commentators on special coverage of major boxing events throughout the year.
