Former two-time unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will sign a new multi-year, multi-fight deal with the streaming service DAZN.
The Brit will be leaving Sky Sports, the only broadcasting partner he was in business with since the star of his pro career. The exact extension and the number of bouts that Joshua will fight in his new contract is yet to be announced, but it’s believed he’ll be fighting twice a year for the next 3-4 years.
DAZN signing Joshua will help bring in a ton of new subscribers in the UK, as long as he starts winning again and is consistent.
“Two-time heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua will confirm this week that he is cutting ties with Sky Sports after nine years as a pay-per-view star with the broadcaster and will switch allegiance to sports streaming service DAZN, the new and increasingly influential player in the digital era in the sports entertainment market,” said Gareth A Davies of the Telegraph about Anthony Joshua to sign a multi-fight deal with DAZN.
Joshua is scheduled to fight the reigning unified heavyweight champ Oleksandr Usyk this upcoming August in Saudi Arabia.
