DAZN, Golden Boy Promotions Ink Multi-Fight Deal
DAZN and U.S.-based boxing powerhouse Golden Boy has announced a multi-year, multi-fight partnership to deliver championship boxing and unearth the next generation of boxing talent.
“We are delighted to extend our partnership with Golden Boy,” says Ed Breeze, EVP Rights, DAZN.
This venture expands on the relationship that started in 2018 with a five-year deal, establishing DAZN and Golden Boy as the leaders in sports entertainment in the U.S. market.
The partnership will include championship fight nights alongside a new prospect development series – Golden Boy Fight Night on DAZN – a monthly boxing series hosted by boxing broadcaster Beto Duran and boxing Hall of Famer Bernard Hopkins. Additional blockbuster events to follow in 2022 will include the return of undefeated superstars Jaime Munguia, Ryan Garcia, and Vergil Ortiz in June, July, and August, respectively.
“Golden Boy has an excellent stable including some of the hottest prospects in boxing, and their shows always feature non-stop action from the first bell to the last,” adds Breeze. “As part of our new partnership we will be looking to unearth the next generation of boxing talent in our new development series ‘Golden Boy Fight Night on DAZN’.”
