The heavyweight boxing rematch between Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora will be broadcast in the US on Showtime, despite the partnership between the fight’s promoter Matchroom and the streaming service DAZN.
Although the joint-venture between DAZN and Matchroom – Matchroom USA – does not include all Matchroom UK events, it was expected to feature many of the more high-profile UK bouts.
The landscape of US boxing has had a whirlwind six months, in which several major media-rights deals have been agreed.
Showtime is showing a renewed appetite for heavyweight boxing, after earlier this month broadcasting the WBC heavyweight title bout between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.
The Whyte-Chisora fight will be live at 17:30 ET in the US.
