DAZN Fighter Signings, Event Dates, Service Price Revealed

There was string of announcements at the Tuesday's press conference to reveal various aspects connected to Perform Group's DAZN streaming service. 

Perform Group signed an eight year deal with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom USA, who are going to provide boxing content for Perform's streaming application.

Hearn has entered into several multi-fight deals with numerous fighters who will appear on the service in the upcoming months. Ring announcer Michael Buffer has signed a multi-year deal to work DAZN events.

The streaming service will run $9.99 a month - which is double of the newly launched ESPN+ streaming service which showcases the majority of the talent from Top Rank. DAZN's service will launch on September 10 with a one month free trial.


As reported a few weeks ago, the first Matchroom card on DAZN, will be Anthony Joshua's defense of the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight titles against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin on September 22nd at Wembley in London.

The first Matchroom USA card, taking place on U.S. soil, will happen on October 6 in Chicago, with IBF light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev making a mandatory defense against Callum Johnson.

Hearn made a deal with promoter Yvon Michel for a three fight co-promotion of Beterbiev.

Also part of that show, and also signed to multi-fight deals with Hearn, former world champion Jessie Vargas will appear in action, Katie Taylor will defend her IBF and WBA lightweight titles against Cindy Serrano.

The next Matchroom USA event will happen on October 20 in Los Angeles with Daniel Roman defending his WBA super bantamweight title against Gavin McDonnell.

Matchroom have made a deal with Roc Nation Sport for a co-promotion on WBO junior welterweight champion Maurice Hooker, and they hope to have him face mandatory challenger Alex Saucedo as the co-feature of that event.

Heavyweight Jarrell Miller and former junior middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade are being positioned to fight in October as well. Andrade appears to be heading to the Chicago card, while Miller could appear on either date.
