LONDON (Feb. 4) – One of boxing’s biggest showmen Tyson Fury makes his BoxNation debut next Saturday night.
The heavyweight sensation faces off against Argentine bruiser Gonzalo Omar Basile from the Copper Box Arena, on a bill which also features Dereck Chisora’s showdown with American Kevin Johnson.
Ahead of the Fury’s eagerly anticipated ring return, live and exclusive on the ‘Channel of Champions’, BoxNation will be bringing subscribers a special one-off show titled, ‘Fists of Fury’, which will showcase the last seven bouts featuring the rising heavyweight star.
Airing this Saturday 8th February from 6pm GMT, the show will start with the enthralling encounter between Fury and Chisora in front of a sold out Wembley Arena in July 2011 and will feature all Fury’s fights since – up until his latest conquest against Steve Cunningham in his US debut.
BoxNation will also bring a ‘not to be missed’ programme, free-to-air to all Sky TV customers, in which viewers can get an up, close and personal look at the often outspoken and charismatic Fury.
‘BoxNation meets – Tyson Fury’ airs on Thursday 13th February at 7.30pm GMT and will lift the lid on one of the sports most colourful characters as it gives a unique insight into the man many believe is set to become the next heavyweight champion of the world.
Further exciting news for BoxNation subscribers is that they will be able to watch Fury’s ring return at the Copper Box Arena on February 15th in glorious high definition, at no extra cost, on Sky channel 449, providing they are already HD enabled.
