Fight Sports has entered into an agreement with Saudi Arabia’s Skill Challenge Entertainment Establishment (SCEE) for the exclusive rights in Africa to the upcoming Heavyweight World Championship rematch.

Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz are set to face off for the WBA, WBO and IBF World Heavyweight Titles Live on December 7. The rematch will air on the newly launched Fight Sports channel on e.tv’s OpenView platform in Africa.

Prince Khaled Bin Abdulaziz, chairman of SCEE, commented: “After getting to know the CSI Sports group during the year, we are pleased to have licensed them the rights across Africa to maximize the exposure of the promotion and fighters while building SCEE into one of the leading homes of high profile championship boxing.”

Richard and Craig Miele, co-CEOs of CSI Sports, added: “After establishing a close relationship with SCEE and enjoying their professionalism, we are pleased that SCEE will be part of our immediate plans to grow the sport through wide distribution and exposure across the continent.”
