Mark Burnett’s The Contender looks like it’ll be heading to Disney’s sports channel ESPN. “ESPN said Monday it was close to acquiring the rights for a second season,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A move to ESPN was rumored way back in late May, although HBO was also later mentioned as a possible home for the series.
