Sky UK to show World Boxing Super Series semi-finals

Pay-television broadcaster Sky has acquired exclusive rights in the UK to the upcoming semi-finals of the World Boxing Super Series.

As part of the deal with Matchroom Sport, Sky will broadcast the three semi-final double-headers.

The semi-finals begin in Los Angeles this Saturday with Nonito Donaire’s bantamweight fight against Zolani Tete and the super-lightweight clash between Regis Prograis and Kiryl Relikh.

Scotland’s Josh Taylor will then take on Ivan Baranchyk in Glasgow on May 18 in another super-lightweight semi-final, while Naoya Inoue takes on Emmanuel Rodríguez in a bantamweight semi-final.

The two cruiserweight semi-finals will take place in the Latvian capital of Riga on June 15, with Yunier Dorticós facing Andrew Tabiti, and Mairis Briedis facing off against Krzysztof Głowacki.
