Tyson Fury’s rematch with Wladimir Klitschko will be made available via BoxNation Box Office to Sky customers for the first time.
The development will see the fight, taking place on Saturday October 29th in Manchester, being accessible to Sky’s 12 million customers who will be able to order the BoxNation event via pay-per-view.
Fury v Klitschko 2, as well as a host of world class fights, will still be available to current BoxNation monthly subscribers as part of their normal package on all platforms, including Sky.
The addition of BoxNation Box Office, Sky Channel 490, will allow sports fans the option to buy the bout as a one-off event up to two weeks out by pressing the Box Office button on their remote and selecting the Sports and Events tab.
BoxNation is currently available on a number of platforms including Sky, Freeview, Virgin, TalkTalk, online and apps, for just £12 a month showing the very best live fights both internationally and domestically, as well as non-stop 24-hour quality boxing programming.
Fury’s eagerly anticipated rematch with the formidable Klitschko will see the Manchester ace fight at home as he looks to prove that his stunning victory over the Ukrainian, who had dominated the division for over 10 years prior to his loss, was no fluke.
The match-up will see the two best heavyweights in the world collide, with the launch of BoxNation Box Office offering fight fans the chance to not miss a moment of the action from the Manchester Arena next month.
Frank Warren, Chairman of BoxNation, said: “Since BoxNation launched in 2011 we have constantly strived to grow the channel by showcasing the very best live fights and content but have also looked closely at improving accessibility for customers. As such, BoxNation is now available on a number of platforms such as Sky, Freeview, Virgin, TalkTalk, online and through apps. We are now delighted to be able to offer Sky customers the chance to order Fury v Klitschko 2 as a one-off box office event via their remote control. Fury v Klitschko 2 is the biggest fight this year and will determine the genuine number one heavyweight on the planet and we are very pleased to have the fight exclusively live on BoxNation and now BoxNation Box Office.”
George Warren, CEO of BoxNation, said: “Fury v Klitschko 2 is the perfect fight to launch BoxNation Box Office, which will be available via our pay-per-view channel 490 on Sky. Box Office has been an area which we were keen to explore and are very happy that we can now offer this option to fans who wish to book the fight as a standalone event through their Sky box. BoxNation monthly subscribers will have the same access to Fury v Klitschko 2 as those ordering the fight via BoxNation Box Office. In addition, they will continue to enjoy further world class live fights and quality boxing content at just £12-a-month. We are looking forward to offering BoxNation Box Office for the biggest fights and will strive to continue delivering the very best service for our customers.”
