DAZN, the global live sports streaming service, expanded to over 200 countries and territories on Dec. 1
One of boxing's blockbuster names will fight shortly after the launch, as Anthony Joshua defends his IBF, WBA (super) and WBO titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev from London's O2 Arena on December 12.
“From the UK to Mexico to Australia, we’ve seen an encouraging level of interest in our key events since first launching in 2016,” said DAZN EVP Joseph Markowski. “We’re looking forward to introducing the DAZN platform around the world this December with an exciting schedule of fights.”
Joshua (23-1, 20 KOs) comes back to make the first defence of his belts since regaining them in December when he won a lopsided decision over Andy Ruiz Jr. to become a two-time unified heavyweight champion. Pulev (28-1, 14 KOs) is ranked the No. 1 contender by the IBF.
To ensure a maximum audience, the main event will start about midnight GMT/7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
Also coming to DAZN is rising star Ryan Garcia vs. 2012 Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell for the interim WBC lightweight title. That fight is scheduled for Jan. 2.
Garcia vs. Campbell won’t be available on DAZN in Poland. Joshua vs. Pulev won’t be on DAZN in the UK or Ireland but will be available via a domestic broadcaster.
