Boxxer to air boxing events to over 100 international territories in new TV broadcast deals
Boxxer, the UK’s next-generation boxing promotion, has announced a plethora of new broadcast agreements which will air live Boxxer programming to over 100 international territories.
Boxxer shows air live and exclusively on Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland, after the UK sports broadcaster signed Boxxer as its exclusive British provider of boxing content in a landmark four-year deal in 2021.
Across the pond, ESPN will air Boxxer’s upcoming 11 June event, headlined by Richard Riakporhe in a cruiserweight title shot eliminator against Fabio Turchi, making the event available to 75 million households in the US and up to 30 million households in Canada.
Agreements are also in place for this event with Mola TV in Italy, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore; Proximia TV in Spain; TV3 in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia; Canal+ in Poland; Nova in Bulgaria; SportKlub in the Balkans and many more.
The new agreements double the size of Boxxer’s global footprint, with further deals set to be announced in the near future. A full list of territories and broadcasters will be available at Boxxer.com shortly, along with a How To Watch section for worldwide fight fans to find their regional carrier.
Boxxer founder and CEO Ben Shalom said: “Boxxer’s international growth has been significant over the past few months. We’re now able to bring our events and fighters to more fight fans than ever. Our ambition is to make the sport more accessible than ever before and these significant international partnerships help make that vision a reality.”
With partnerships in place with premium broadcasters across mainland Europe, south-east Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Latin America, Boxxer gives international fight fans a new level of access to top-tier boxing while enabling the new generation of standout British boxers to showcase their skills to viewers around the world.
The Boxxer stable includes world champions, elite contenders and Olympic medallists. Following yesterday’s announcement that silver medalist Ben Whittaker has signed an exclusive promotional agreement, Boxxer is now home to four of the six Team GB medallists from the Tokyo Olympics.
Boxxer’s next event takes place Saturday 11 June at the SSE Arena in Wembley, London. Riakporhe and Turchi headline in a world title shot eliminator, with the card also featuring a highly-competitive welterweight clash between Chris Kongo and Sebastian Formella, the pro debut of Olympic gold medallist Lauren Price and an English Super-Middleweight Championship clash between Zak Chelli and Germaine Brown which has ‘Fight of the Year’ potential.
