Boxnation Deal With TopRank
LONDON (April 4) – BoxNation has agreed an exclusive output deal with leading boxing promoters Top Rank which will see the channel continue to air the world’s best fights.
‘The Channel of Champions’ is living up to its name after reaching an agreement with the American promoters to show all events which are available to the UK, live and exclusive on the undisputed home of big time boxing.
The agreement will start next month when BoxNation airs Mexican superstar Juan Manuel Marquez’s battle with the skilled Mike Alvarado on May 17th, before Filipino hotshot Nonito Donaire moves up to featherweight to challenge Simpiwe Vetyeka for his WBA Super world title on May 31st.
The deal with Top Rank will ensure that BoxNation continuously delivers the biggest and best bouts, and comes hot on the heels after the channel secured the two biggest draws in boxing in Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.
BoxNation has a jam-packed schedule over the coming weeks, starting with Carl Frampton’s bout against Hugo Cazares tonight, before Pacquiao takes on Tim Bradley next weekend, with Mayweather’s monster May 3rd card against Marcos Maidana the jewel in the crown.
Further top names on the channel include IBF world champion Bernard Hopkins as he looks to unify the light-heavyweight division against WBA Super title holder Beibut Shumenov on April 19th, Amir Khan against Luis Collazo on the Mayweather bill and knockout king Adonis Stevenson defending his WBC light-heavyweight belt against Andrzej Fonfara on May 24th.
Plus, in other exciting news for BoxNation viewers, the channel has secured the rights to the WBC heavyweight world title eliminator between Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne on May 10th.
The pair do battle at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, to see who will the man be to take on the hammer-fisted, brash-talking, all-American sensation that is Deontay Wilder.
With the prize a shot at Vitali Klitschko’s recently vacated WBC crown, both Arreola and Stiverne will be ready to leave it all in the ring, with BoxNation being the only place to see how the heavyweight tale unfolds over the coming months.
With Tyson Fury taking on Dereck Chisora on July 26th, on boxing’s number one pound-for-pound channel, BoxNation is the home of the heavyweights, with only one set to emerge as the rightful heir to the Klitschko throne.
