About 40 years ago, ABC sports announcer Howard Cosell announced he was no longer going to call boxing matches. He said he was “deeply troubled” by the sport and he would step away from the mic.
“I’ve had it. No more,” he said.
Of course, in the intervening years, boxing has gone from bad to worse. Kickboxing, cage matches, anything goes. It’s brutal and it’s ugly.
But Howard would be very happy to know that on Jan. 29, 2022, there will be a live, pay-per-view telecast of the Pillow Fight Championship. That’s right. pillow fighting.
The broadcast will feature toned and muscular men and women in a ring hitting each other with pillows. It looks as silly as it sounds. But the head of the PFC, Steve Williams, said he thinks professional pillow fighting can have “mainstream appeal.”
“The only difference between our fights and MMA fights is that nobody gets hurt,” he said. “The fighters don’t like to get hurt, and there’s a lot of people who don’t want to see the blood. They want to see good competition; they just don’t want to see the violence.”
How refreshing is that? A sport in which nobody gets hurt. Nobody is writhing in pain on the field, no blood spurting and there is no need to break away to commercial while medics take care of an injured player.
Why, even Joe Buck could announce such a sport and not be criticized.
Now if you wonder if this will catch on, the PFC announced that the January contest in Delray Beach, Florida, has been sold out.
And ticket holders will be watching adults whack each other with pillows like kids at a sleepover.
My question is how do they know somebody won? Obviously, there will be no knockouts. I doubt anyone will be lying prostrate on the mattress.
It’s unlikely a referee (and, yes, they have them) will stop the fight because one of the fighters has an eye swollen shut (“Cut me, Mick!”).
And if this sport becomes mainstream, will the networks bid for the rights? If we’ll watch corn hole and darts, why not pillow fights?
Will the My Pillow guy be working the concession stand?
Will there be a professional pillow fighter on a box of Wheaties?
I’m sure there is a lot to work out, but this is an encouraging sign in a world where bloodsport is king.
All I hope is that they use hypoallergenic pillows.
On Saturday, December 18, 2022,Pillow Fight Championship took part in the card at Deuces Wild II from The Casino at Dania Beach in Dania Beach, Florida.
PFC featured two highly competitive contests that showcased what professional pillow fighting is all about.

The Softer Side Of Combat Sports <3
Quite frankly, whether or not the PFC qualifies as a “combat sport” is subject to some very worthy debate. Both the “combat” and the “sport” terms could be disputed on some level. After all, anything that can be done in a slumber party will rarely if ever be joined with the aforementioned two terms. Yet, the PFC might just be the literal one exception to this rule.
“It’s not something where you sit there and laugh and feathers are flying,” PFC’s CEO Steve Williams told Reuters. “It’s serious. It’s hardcore swinging with specialized pillows.”
And unlike that barbarous “MMA” and “boxing” you degenerates love, the PFC likes to ensure that their athletes make it back home in one piece.
“The fighters don’t like to get hurt, and there’s a lot of people who don’t want to see the blood,” Williams said. “They want to see good competition, they just don’t want to see the violence.”
PFC contests are scheduled for three rounds. The next PFC event, PFC 3: Pound Down takes, place January 29, 2022, and is available on FITE TV.
New York, NY and Boca Raton, FL (November 16, 2021)– FITE, The premier global streaming platform for sports and entertainment, in concert with FightPFC, the first Professional Pillow Fight Championship League, announced their plans for the brand’s first-ever live show, “PFC3 Pound Down” from Miami Florida on January 29, 2022 at 9 p.m. ET. The show will be available on live streaming global pay per view, exclusively on FITE mobile/OTT/ Smart TV apps/partners and online at FITE.TV. FightPFC’s previous event, PFC2 will be available in its entirety as a free offering prior to the live PFC# PPV event on FITE.TV.
FightPFC Pillow Fight Championships quickly evolved into a popular sport as combatants armed with personal strength, speed, stamina and strategic skills, akin to more brutal combat sports but with a massive amount of fast action which attracts and retains consumers. Within the past three months, PFC grew to over 23k TikTok followers and tallied up over 10 Million views via their own social media and partner coverage. With media articles and features from Fox TV broadcasts to the New York Post to ESPN and SportsCenter Snapchat shows that interest in the sport is booming.
Ironically, many of the PFC fighters are professional MMA athletes, drawn to the intense fights and that require top level cardio and skillset workouts but without the injuries of MMA and Boxing. It’s a sport for male and female fighters of all ages and weight classes. The extension into international expansion has already begun with FightPFC recently conducting three separate PFC events in Sao Paulo Brazil in October. It’s not just a pillow, the specialized, patent pending combat pillows are configured with durable handles and rip stop nylon to make a fast and hard hitting fight possible and with exciting sound when a strike is made.
“The “PFC3 Pound Down” is going to be an amazing event, featuring the World’s first bracketed championship fight with a purse. We will also have some very entertaining theme fights with internet influencers and celebrities,” said Gary Jaffe – VP PFC Events and Content. Mark Keys, Head of Digital for PFC remarked, “The excitement around FightPFC has been amazing. We’ve received thousands of comments from people around the country who want to fight. Our goal is to bring pillow fighting to the world so everyone can participate or watch and have fun with a sport they all grew up with.”
Kim Hurwitz, CMO of FITE, said, “I was surprised at how well this new alternative sport endeavor was put together as PFC has a great management team behind it and they seem to be making all the right moves. We think it’ll become quite popular and that’s why we stepped up to the plate. We foresee FightPFC carving out an entirely new audience that wants all the fast action of a great fight without blood or broken bones.”
PFC is taking the world by storm, creating buzz all over the world following the announcement of PFC3: Pound Down.
CNN International’s Bianca Nobilo recently featured PFC in a segment in a recent edition of The Global Brief.

Nov. 19, 2021 (Reuters) – Pillow fighting is moving out of the bedroom and into the boxing ring when Pillow Fight Championship (PFC) holds its first live, pay-per-view event in Florida on Jan. 29.
Steve Williams, the man with the dream of turning childhood horseplay into a professional combat sport, said PFC delivers all the drama of hand-to-hand combat without the gore of mixed martial arts or boxing.
“It’s not something where you sit there and laugh and feathers are flying,” Williams, CEO of PFC, told Reuters.
“It’s serious. It’s hardcore swinging with specialised pillows.”
Although the male and female competitors in January’s event mostly hail from the cutthroat worlds of MMA and boxing, children will still sleep soundly after seeing the bouts.
“The only difference between our fights and MMA fights is that nobody gets hurt,” he said.
“The fighters don’t like to get hurt, and there’s a lot of people who don’t want to see the blood. They want to see good competition, they just don’t want to see the violence.”
The fact that so many people grew up bashing their siblings, friends and parents with pillows makes the sport relatable, which he hopes will help tap into a new audience.
“You can call it an alternative sport, but we think it’s going to have mainstream appeal,” he said.
“Think about how they mixed country music with rap music and brought these diverse audiences together. That’s what we’re doing, and we hope it brings in a different kind of viewer.”
The three-round bouts will be available to view on sports streaming platform FITE.
