BoxNation to offer pay-per-view event through Sky

UK pay-television broadcaster BoxNation will offer pay-per-view coverage of a boxing event via pay-television operator Sky for the first time next month when Tyson Fury takes on Wladimir Klitschko in a heavyweight world title rematch.

BoxNation Box Office will be available via the Sky platform for the first time.

The fight will take place in Manchester on October 29.

Fury v Klitschko 2 will still be available to current BoxNation monthly subscribers as part of their normal package on all platforms, including Sky.

George Warren, chief executive of BoxNation, said: “Box Office has been an area which we were keen to explore and are very happy that we can now offer this option to fans who wish to book the fight as a standalone event through their Sky box. We are looking forward to offering BoxNation Box Office for the biggest fights and will strive to continue delivering the very best service for our customers.”
