Chris Eubank Jr.’s upcoming defense of his super middleweight IBO title against Arthur Abraham is getting some play Stateside. The scheduled July 15th fight in London will now be distributed domestically in the United States on PPV by Integrated Sports Media -- all for the low, low suggested price of $24.95! The PPV will be available for purchase through both boxing cable and satellite TV providers.
Lee Selby’s IBF featherweight title defense against Jonathan Victor Barros will also be featured on the telecast, with additional fight that have yet to be announced.
I doubt this fight does much business in the States, given that none of the participants are very popular here, but I will say that having moderately priced PPVs is something we should see much more of, generally speaking.
Eubank Jr. (24-1, 19 KOs) is currently riding a six fight stoppage streak since his lone loss to Billy Joe Saunders in 2014, while Abraham (46-5, 30 KOs) has won two straight fights since a poor, poor showing against Gilberto Ramirez in Spring 2016.
