Sky Sports and Matchroom Sport have extended their current contract for live boxing to 2021.

The new agreement, exclusive in the UK and Ireland, will bring Sky Sports viewers 120 nights of action over the next six years.

Next generation British boxers including James DeGale MBE, Kell Brook, Lee Selby, Kevin Mitchell, Scott Quigg, Luke Campbell MBE and Anthony Crolla will now be exclusive to the channel. Viewers will also be able to watch gold medallist Anthony Joshua MBE, one of Britain’s most exciting sporting prospects.

Sky Sports Managing Director Barney Francis said: “As the home of boxing we’re thrilled to be able to offer a further five years of fights and fighters. A huge commitment to online and digital content will mean a more interactive experience for all fight fans who will continue to enjoy the best quality and excitement of boxing on Sky Sports.”

Sky Sports viewers can look forward to watching 20 shows each year and follow all the build-up across its channels and digital outlets.
