LONDON (4 September) – Boxing’s most anticipated fight in a decade when middleweight superstars Canelo Alvarez and Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin collide later this month will be shown exclusively live in the UK and Ireland on BoxNation Box Office from just £16.95.
BoxNation’s current paying subscribers, and any new customers that wish to subscribe instead of buying it via BOX OFFICE, will get the fight as part of their monthly subscription.
Canelo and Golovkin are guaranteeing a real fight between two genuine pound-for-pound boxing stars.
The most anticipated boxing match in years pits together the world’s two best middleweights, with the Kazakh hitman putting his WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO world titles all on the line at the sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday September 16th.
So enticing is the matchup that the fight is drawing comparisons with middleweight classics of the past, with many experts predicting a historic event that will stand the test of time.
Canelo has steamrolled past boxing’s best names on his way to becoming a two-weight world champion, including the likes of Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley, Amir Khan and most recently Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
In Golovkin, however, he faces an undefeated opponent who has built a formidable reputation, knocking out 33 of his 37 opponents while dominating the 160-pound middleweight division.
Fireworks are guaranteed when these two step into the ring, with neither willing to take a back step when the punches begin to fly.
The only way to buy Canelo v Golovkin on Sky is via the Sky remote control and will be available to purchase from Saturday 9th September.
Virgin Media customers can order the event too via their remote control from Monday 11th September.
If you are not a Sky or Virgin Media customer you can buy this fight as part of a monthly subscription to the channel through boxnation.com.
Simply choose your platform: Sky, TalkTalk, Freeview, Online or App and follow the instructions online. There is no minimum term so you can cancel anytime.
Frank Warren, BoxNation Chairman, said: “This is without doubt THE boxing event of 2017, and among the very best fights to be made in the last decade. Canelo v Golovkin was the fight that boxing fans have long called for, The Best v The Best, and on Saturday 16th September BoxNation Box Office will be bringing the UK and Irish fans the not-to-be-missed event exclusively live for just £16.95. We are delighted to offer this historic battle at a very reasonable and competitive price.
In addition to this, BoxNation’s loyal paying subscribers will be able to enjoy the toe-to-toe encounter as part of their monthly subscription. This is a fight that will undoubtedly go down alongside the legendary middleweight fights of the past. Marvin Hagler, ‘Sugar’ Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran and Tommy Hearns all made their mark on the sport. Next week will be the chance for Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin to stake their claim to join such revered company. This is going to be something very special.”
