Default Boxing: Klitschko vs Joshua (29 April 2017)

Are we getting this? Please let it be the case. Supersport doesn't seem to show these Sky sports promoted fights anymore. Hopefully they can secure the rights to this one.

No we are not.

I have spoken to @supersportPR on twitter and it it a SKY/Matchbet sport fight promoted by Eddie Hearn.
Hearn made a deal with Kwese Sports Africa on our continent.
Unfortunately Kwese is not available in South Africa.

So we do not have this fight, nor do we have the Brooke v Spence fight in late May.

One would think that Kwese can then sub-sell their rights to someone else (like SuperSport) in countries where they do not operate? Just like SuperSport sometimes sub-sells rights to the SABC.

Or is SS just not prepared to pay the asking price?

Damn! I guess there just isn't enough interest to justify the purchase; at least that's what MC are probably going to say. I miss my Eubank Jnr.

Well, they are willing to burn cash on the most boring sport in the world F1...but most likely they have a cheap deal from sky

Wow, that's great (and surprising) news. From a response in another thread I thought all the Joshua fights were unavailable for now. I guess these channels are chosen as they're SA only and so don't infringe the Africa rights holder in their territory? Anyway, thanks for letting us know.

Just checked the EPG and doesn't seem to be on there yet. I think it'll start at roughly midnight tomorrow (Sat), right? Timing is never precise when it comes to boxing, but hopefully we see a bit of the undercard and buildup too...

edit: now on the EPG (261) from 21:30 to midnight. Although the boxers are supposed to only enter the ring at 10pm uk time (midnight our time) so I guess this will still change.
