The UK’s only dedicated 24/7 boxing channel also featured ring-king Manny Pacquiao’s return against all-action star Brandon Rios on 23rd November.
“Our partnership with BoxNation provides pubs and clubs with more boxing content than ever before and an even wider choice of live sport to drive value for their businesses,” said David Rey, Managing Director of Sky Business, of the new arrangement.
BoxNation offers live and exclusive boxing action from the UK and around the world and the new agreement permits live boxing to be broadcast on Sky Sports throughout the year, from small hall shows featuring up-and-coming fighters to glamour occasions with the world’s best boxers from Las Vegas. All live boxing on Sky Sports is complemented by a schedule of support programming including The Gloves Are Off series, Behind the Ropes and the weekly magazine programme Ringside.
Over the last two years, BoxNation has shown more than 100 big fights including World, European and British title fights, as well as major US fights.
