Meet the entire DAZN fighter roster for 2018-2019
DAZN kicked off their partnerships with Matchroom Boxing and Comosa AG on September 22 as heavyweight king Anthony Joshua defended his world titles in London.
Joshua pushed his undefeated record to 22 bouts when stopping Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium.
The headliner represented the first boxing event to be streamed exclusively on DAZN and marked the beginning of a deal with promoter Eddie Hearn to showcase some of the most talented fighters in the world.
Hard-hitting top division ruler Joshua was a feature attraction, and subscribers to DAZN can now get ready to watch more top action on October 6 from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago as part of a one-month free trial.
Sign up to DAZN to enjoy yours now, and DAZN is then available for $9.99 per month thereafter. A host of event dates already penciled in before the end of the year.
Here’s a rundown of the talent subscribers can expect to see on DAZN in the future.
