If you live in the UK, you’re in luck! The World Boxing Super Series has just struck a deal with ITV which will exclusively broadcast both the super middleweight and cruiserweight tournaments for the WBSS’ inaugural season. The fights will air on both free-to-air and pay-per-view platforms, with Callum Smith vs. Erik Skoglund’s fight in Liverpool to be aired live on ITV4.

Said Kalle Sauerland, Chief Boxing Officer: “It is simply unbelievable that the most loyal boxing fans on the planet - the UK fans - are able to watch every single second of action in the tournament as well as the second to none side programming.”

Chris Eubank Jr.-Avni Yildirim and George Groves-Jamie Cox, two other opening quarterfinals matches at super middleweight are being slated for ITV box office.

As of now there aren’t any US television broadcasts of this tournament, which is sort of a bummer, but hopefully that can be sorted out quickly.
