FITE TV save British fans from UK TV blackout for Charlo double-header

Charlo brothers Pay Per View

FITE TV has agreed on a deal to broadcast the forthcoming Charlo brothers Pay Per View from the United States to many audiences around the world, including the UK.

British fight fans faced a blackout for the split-site showdown as Jermall and Jermell Charlo prepare to star in separate PPV’s on the same night.

Sky Sports and BT Sport both avoided securing UK TV rights. The situation left FITE TV free to offer fans the chance to purchase the event.

Jermall will face top contender Sergiy Derevyanchenko headlining part one of the doubleheader. While Jermell takes on WBA and IBF 154-pound champion Jeison Rosario in the main event of part two of the twin bill presented by Premier Boxing Champions.
