HBO Boxing and Showtime will share US broadcast rights for Joshua vs Klitschko on April 29th at Wembley Stadium.
The super-fight has been shared by the US broadcasters due to Joshua having a deal with Showtime whilst Klitschko has an exclusive deal with HBO.
Showtime will broadcast the fight live at 4:15 p.m. ET/1:15 p.m. PT.
HBO will then broadcast the fight later that evening at 10:45 p.m. ET/PT.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn was pleased to get the deal over the line.
It takes a special fight to break down barriers and boundaries but also networks and executives who believe in working with the best interest of fight fans in mind.
With the obstacles in place it would have been any easy resolution to not air the fight in the States but I want to thank HBO and Showtime for their perseverance and allowing America to see one hell of a fight at our national stadium.
