MTG Scores All World Boxing Super Series Fights


MTG’s television channels and Viaplay streaming service have become the exclusive home of the World Boxing Super Series in the Nordic and Baltic regions.

Starting September 9, fans can watch every match live as the world’s top cruiserweight and super middleweight boxers compete for the Muhammad Ali Trophy. Tomorrow’s first quarter-final fight will see Oleksandr Usyk take on Marco Huck in Berlin. The match will be shown on MTG’s Nordic and Baltic TV networks, as well as Viaplay.

Peter Nørrelund, MTG’s executive VP and CEO of MTG Sport, commented: “This tournament is what boxing fans everywhere have been dreaming about—an elimination format with the best fighting the best for a prize named after the greatest fighter of all time. Nine of the boxers taking part have never lost a fight, and the combined record for all 16 participants is an astonishing 423 wins and 294 KOs. Get ready to rumble as we bring fantastic live fight action to our platforms across the Nordic and Baltic regions—the recent Mayweather vs. McGregor fight was MTG’s most successful ever, so we’re even more excited about what’s to come.”
