'The home of boxing' BoxNation has raised it's game by reaching an agreement with Golden Boy Promotions - announcing that they will now be airing two live Golden Boy events each month.
This means that fight fans in the UK will be getting much more quality boxing content due to the fact that BoxNation's stable of boxers will be under less pressure to step into the ring to fill airtime and can focus on higher quality fights.
The first broadcast will be on April 21st when Abner Mares takes on Erik Morel in a double world title show that also includes Anselmo Moreno Vs David De La Mora.
This will be followed by the rematch of Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson on April 28th for the WBC world light-heavyweight title.
BoxNation had already announced that they will be televising live from Las Vegas on May 5th for one of the biggest fights of the year between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Miguel Cotto. On the same card will be, Saul Alvarez Vs Sugar Shane Mosely.
The CEO of BoxNation commented on the deal: “This is a tremendous addition to BoxNation’s lineup of world class boxing... Golden Boy hosts the best of the sport from the United States and along with the top action from Europe and the UK now means that we can arguably claim to be the best boxing channel ever.”
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer added:”We are pleased to expand our relationship with BoxNation and bring British fight fans at least two Golden Boy events every month.”
This deal is good news for everyone in Great Britain. That's including the promoters, coaches and fighters but especially the fans. We are getting such a high quality of boxing for just £10 a month. Thanks to this wonderful idea by Frank Warren.
BoxNation is available on SKY 456 and Virgin 546.
