Matchroom To Launch 'Fight Pass' Streaming Service

By Shaun Brown

Matchroom Boxing’s new Fight Pass service, which will provide at least ten boxing shows a year streamed online, could have its first date on August 30, followed by a second show on September 12 with venues and fights to be confirmed.

With an announcement to be made at a Matchroom media day in a fortnight, promoter Eddie Hearn told that not only would fans get non-televised shows as part of their annual subscription but also access to their old library of fights and a priority purchasing service to all Matchroom shows for subscribers to this new service.

“We’ll also announce that we’re working with two, probably three promoters in partnership,” he added.

“There’s all kinds of things that Fight Pass is for but the other thing is to give the promoters that we’re working with some support and to help them develop their shows as well.

“We’ve got plans to invest in the very grass roots through the amateur body which you’ll hear more about in the next six months. Obviously we’re involved in the top end but I just feel that there’s more fighters I’d like to sign who can’t get on the number of shows they need to progress. I’m talking about fighters like Johnny Coyle, Sam Eggington… these kind of guys could go on to be top quality fighters but aren’t given the chance to progress properly. A lot of these shows will feature our big boys who are potentially coming back from something as well.”

Go-fight is doing this but at least it airs their bouts delayed on cable. More profitable and serves as free advertising(hint hint).

This is great news. I'm most excited about being able to purchase tickets to the big shows before the casuals sell them out.

10 a year? :pat: Don't overdo it, Matchroom. I mean, getting regular boxing streams online might *shudder* help the sport. You don't want that! Just to siphon money out of the fans.
