Boxing promoter Frank Warren and Boxing Channel Media launches their dedicated boxing channel tonight on Sky channel 456.
BoxNation, presented by Richard Keys, will showcase its first live fight between Liam Walsh and Paul Appleby from York Hall in London’s east end.
The channel will mostly feature two LIVE championship promotions from the UK and around the world each week. Live boxing will also include major amateur tournaments starting with the mouth watering World Amateur Championships from Azerbaijan and then the Royal Albert Hall Cup from London.
Earlier this week, Frank Warren said: “This is what all boxing fans have been waiting for – a dedicated channel, 100% percent committed to showing the best fights from around the world. It’s a big challenge in my career, but I’m really excited by BoxNation and it takes me back to my early years when I was at ITV doing a show a week.”
The channel will initially be free-to-air, but will become a subscription channel before the end of the year and will be available at just £10 per month.
Jim Rosenthal, Paul Dempsey, Steve Bunce and John Rawling will also be apart of the new channel..
