Money Mayweather and The Notorious One are set to go head to head on the 26th of August as one of the most hyped fights of 2017. The question on every South African fight fans lips is: WHERE CAN I WATCH THIS FIGHT?
Supersport (and Showmax) have confirmed they have gotten the rights for the super-fight of the year. Just like they have with every major boxing event over the past 3 decades. For those of you with Supersport, the fight will be shown on Supersport 2 and Maximo 1. We’ve got some great news for non-DSTV subscribers over the course of the next 2 weeks.
The average PPV (pay per view) price will be close to $100 (R1,300) but having a Supersport account will save you the PPV trouble. So make sure you’ve got your alarms set and you’re ready to wake up nice and early. Otherwise, head out for a night on the town and plan an all nighter, up to you.
“SuperSport will cross to Las Vegas at 3:00 (CAT) for the action-packed undercard, with the main bout expected to start after 5:00.
The entire tournament will be broadcast to DStv Premium subscribers only in high definition.
This has been at the top of our list ever since the fight was announced,” said Gideon Khobane, chief executive of SuperSport.
