Sky Sports is out and DAZN is officially in as the broadcast partner of Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing in the UK and Ireland. Sky Sports had been the exclusive home of Matchroom in the UK and Ireland since 2012.

The deal was first reported by The Athletic’s Mike Coppinger in the early spring and was confirmed today. The deal is worth over $100 million for five years.

The deal includes 16 cards with the action beginning on July 31. The deal doesn’t include Anthony Joshua’s services. Joshua has one fight remaining on his Sky Sports deal.

The Matchroom events will also be streamed in the United States by DAZN.
