September 25, 2017

Showtime has secured the US broadcast rights for Anthony Joshua’s upcoming world heavyweight title bout against Kubrat Pulev.

Joshua is set to defend his WBA and IBF titles when he faces the Bulgarian at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on October 28th.

Undefeated WBC champion Deontay Wilder’s clash with Luis Ortiz on November 4th will also broadcast on Showtime as part of a ‘double header’ of heavyweight boxing.

Stephen Espinoza, executive vice president and general manager of Showtime Sports, said: “There’s so much to be excited about in the sport of boxing, and it all comes to a fever pitch on consecutive Saturdays this fall on Showtime.

“This has been a great year for boxing. More specifically, it has been a great year for Showtime boxing. There’s no better way to end it than with two major heavyweight world championship events.

“We are proud to be in business with the two biggest punchers in the sport, Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, and the rest of the talented and hungry heavyweight challengers of today.”
