SuperSport scooped Mayweather Jr. versus Conor McGregor for DStv. The epic boxing fight will be broadcasted exclusively to viewers across Ghana and Africa.
The show entitled ‘The Money Fight’ is to be broadcasted on DSTV only and will air live on SuperSport2 and Maximo 1 on Sunday, August 27. Subscribers of DSTV premium will be allowed a treat of the ringside view when SuperSport crosses to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Highlights of the show will be available on DStv’s Catch Up service in the hours following the event.
Cecil Sunkwa Mills, General Manager, MultiChoice Ghana said, “Unlike in the US where the fight will be available on pay-per-view in HD for $99.95, DStv customers will enjoy the event as part of the DStv Premium offering, at no extra cost.”
SuperSport has been in the forefront of delivering the most-anticipated events in the world of sports with the traditional showcasing of super-fights like Mike Tyson vs Michael Spinks to Mayweather vs Pacquiao.
Chief executive of SuperSport Gideon Khobane said, “This has been at the top of our list ever since the fight was announced. People continue to talk of the great fights we brought to viewers in the 1980s and beyond. But this is more than a fight, it’s a mega-event with layers of controversy, excitement, and intrigue. We’ll also be putting together great background programming for our valued DStv customers around the fight.”
