BoxNation, Top Rank Reach Big UK TV Agreement
The Channel of Champions BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546) is delighted to announce that it has secured the LIVE broadcast rights for a further two massive Top Rank World Championship boxing events this month.
BoxNation will break new ground when it televises LIVE the first ever world title fight from Macao S.A.R, China, this Saturday (6th April). An action-packed double-world title show from the CotaiArena features exciting WBO World Super-Featherweight Champion Roman Martinez defending his title against Diego Magdaleno, plus WBO/WBA World Flyweight Champion Brian Viloria putting both titles on the line against Juan Francisco Estrada. The night’s special attraction features China’s top amateur boxer, Zou Shiming, the double Olympic Gold Medalist, who will make history when he becomes the country’s first ever boxer to turn professional. Coverage starts on BoxNation from 2.30am on Sunday 7th April.
Then the following week, on Saturday 13th April, the action switches to the world famous Radio City Music Hall in New York for LIVE coverage of the explosive unification showdown between WBO World Super-Bantamweight Champion Nonito Donaire and undefeated WBA World Champion Guillermo Rigondeaux in one of the most highly anticipated fights of this year. Coverage starts on BoxNation from 2am on Sunday 14th April.
Last month BoxNation televised two Top Rank events with both main event fights already being heralded as Fight of the Year contenders: WBO World Welterweight Champion Timothy Bradley’s thriller against Ruslan Provodnikov and last Saturday nights edge-of-your-seat fight between Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado.
The addition of both marquee events further solidifies BoxNation’s position as the best boxing channel in the UK with an unrivaled schedule that features world title action in the coming weeks with the world’s best fighters: Floyd Mayweather Jnr., Amir Khan, Sergio Martinez and Nathan Cleverly.
