UK boost for SA super show

Box Nation, the big-time boxing subscription service in the UK and Ireland, will broadcast this weekend’s big double-header live from Emperors Palace.

Subscribers will get to see the full “Repeat or Revenge” card, a boon for local boxers given that they will sit alongside the Vasyl Lomachenko-Jose Pedraza and Isaac Dogboe-Emanuel Navarrete bouts taking place in New York. This show will also be broadcast on Box Nation.

“This is great exposure,” said promoter Rodney Berman, “but it goes without saying that the fighters must perform.”

Unbeaten IBO welterweight champion Thulane Mbenge defends his belt against Miguel Vasquez in the co-main feature with the rematch between Tommy Oosthuizen and Thabiso Mchunu the other big draw.
