Saturday’s Matchroom Boxing world title triple-header, featuring a trio of women’s world title fights with Katie Taylor in the main event, will be available free on multiple digital platforms for those in the United Kingdom, part of Sky Sports’ commitment to women’s sport.

Along with airing on Sky Sports for subscribers as normal, those who aren’t subscribers can watch the fights free on as well as the network’s YouTube and Facebook pages.

Those in the U.S. will still have to have a subscription to DAZN.

“We’re delighted to be able to make Saturday’s triple-header of women’s world title fights, a world first, available to a wider audience to showcase some of the brightest talents in the sport,” Sky’s Adam Smith said. “We’ve been with Katie from the beginning of her journey and are proud to be a part of the boom we’re seeing in women’s boxing. Through live streaming the action, we are able to bring more boxing fans closer to the hard-hitting action than ever before with this world first.”

“This is more ground-breaking news that helps us push women’s boxing to where it needs to be. The momentum of the last few years led by Katie Taylor has been special to watch but we have still got a long way to go,” said Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn. “Nights like Saturday change the narrative of the sport, and as I have said before, it’s not men’s boxing and it’s not women’s boxing, it’s just boxing. Katie Taylor is a trailblazer and it is only right that she headlines this card on Saturday on a moment that we have all been working towards for a very long time. The key is to give these great fighters the platform to become stars and achieve their dreams.”

In the main event, Ireland’s superstar Taylor (16-0, 6 KO) will defend her undisputed lightweight crown against Spain’s Miriam Gutierrez (13-0, 5 KO). The co-feature will see WBC junior lightweight titlist Terri Harper (10-0-1, 5 KO) defend against Katharina Thanderz (13-0, 2 KO), and the vacant WBA bantamweight title will be at stake between Rachel Bell (6-1, 0 KO) and Jorgelina Guanini (9-1-2, 1 KO).

The show will also feature a super middleweight bout between John Docherty (9-0, 7 KO) and Jack Cullen (18-2-1, 9 KO), plus returns for light heavyweight Thomas Whittaker Hart and bantamweight Kash Farooq.
