The Mexican mega fight between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr has today been announced that UK fans will be able to watch the fight live on Boxnation on May 6th.
This comes as part of Boxnation’s new lucrative deal with BT Sport, costing in the region of £100 million. We will see the change happen on April 2nd as BT customers will have their bills increased by £1 a month, and in turn they will access to Boxnation and various other sports.
As we all know, Frank Warren has promised 30 live shows to be broadcasted on Boxnation, and 20 of them being promoted in association with BT. They have recently announced another belter of a fight in Keith Thurman v Danny Garcia.
What originally started as good friends has now spun out into a fued as Canelo promises to punish Chavez Jr for comments he has made, and the two will bring an entire nation together on Cinco De Mayo as they square off at the T-Mobile Arena.
