WBSS: UK, Germany TV details, start time revealed for Inoue v Payano

World Boxing News 06/10/2018

With just 24 hours remaining before the first punch is thrown, the World Boxing Super Series revealed the broadcast details for this weekend’s launch.

Naoya ‘Monster’ Inoue headlines the maiden event of Season II in Yokohama this Sunday, and until now, TV details were unconfirmed for several countries.

DAZN hold the rights for the USA, although the UK and parts of Europe were still wondering about streaming online.

That is until the WBSS made a special announcement via social media on Saturday. It’s good news for fight fans in the UK and Germany.

“Confirmed. We will be streaming the Yokohama Fight Night LIVE in the UK and Germany on worldboxingsuperseries.com, Facebook.com/WBSuperSeries and the WBSS youtube channel. The show will start at noon UK time on Sunday,” said the World Boxing Super Series.

On Saturday, Inoue and Payano and the co-feature between Kiryl Relikh and Eduard Troyanovsky made weight in Japan. The Ali Trophy Quarter-Finals kick-off on October 7 at the Yokohama Arena, Yokohama, Japan.
