Channel 5, Ladbrokes and Wasserman boxing have joined hands to provide free coverage of a minimum of six fights this year.
The two companies partnered last year as well, covering as many as five bouts. The schedule for this time around starts with the coverage for the bout for the IBO World Lightweight championship on March 24 from the University of Bolton stadium. Lyndon Arthur will be going up against the current champ in the Lightweight category, Argentina’s Braian Nahuel Suarez. It will be followed up by Harlem Eubank and Christian Uruzquieta’s bout on March 31, at the London York Hall.
Wasserman head of global boxing Kalle Sauerland has promised that there will be many exciting bouts to look forward to, which will be available for free on Channel 5.
Ladbrokes is one of the world’s leading entertainment brands and we’re delighted to be working with them to bring first-class, free-to-air boxing to the British public.
