Default Boxing Coverage

Good day all
I am writing about this subject in this sub-forum and not in the SS sub-forum due to the observation that MC does not even bother to reply to queries in it. I am an avid fan of quality international boxing. SS used to provide us with a fair amount some time back. However with the introduction of more and more football channels the boxing content has dwindled more and more. What we're reduced to now is some local fights and some fights from around Africa. SS has become SABC for the boxing fans. Probably because SABC has given over these rights to MC because they cannot afford even these rights anymore. What a sad state of affairs we now find ourselves in. Care to comment MC?

Hi there, I've moved this back to the SuperSport section and will prompt them to answer. This is about the availability of rights for those fights (they are not always available to buy) and the price of the rights when they are available. There is a reason why they charge a pay-per-view fee overseas for international boxing fights.

Will leave the rest to SuperSport to respond.

Hi Francet,

Despite our best efforts to acquire all of boxing’s mega bouts, we’re not always successful.
Fights involving Anthony Joshua and Gennady Golovkin were acquired by another broadcaster in a bundled deal. When the rights become available again we’ll be pitching for them.
SuperSport continues to bring its viewers quality international bouts involving elite-level boxers. This year to date we’ve shown live;
WBA / WBC Welterweight Unification: Keith Thurman vs Danny Garcia
WBC / IBF Super Middleweight Championship: James DeGale vs Badou Jack
WBA Featherweight Title: Carl Frampton vs Leo Santa Cruz
