TELEVISION X LAUNCHES BARE KNUCKLE BOXING ON PAY-PER-VIEW
Leading UK adult TV channel Television X has joined forces with BKB – the only legal bare-knuckle boxing company in the world – to showcase an exclusive combat sports event.
The highly anticipated showdown, BKB 15, will be broadcast live on TVX Pay Per Night, Sky Channel 900, on Saturday 26 January 2019 from 7pm (encrypted from 8pm) and guarantees to be a night of high-octane action.
Being billed as “Knock one out – the boys’ night in”, pay-per-view customers will get all the fight action, plus the bonus of a night of TVX movies across 3 Sky channels when the BKB event ends. Television X pornstars Rebecca Jane Smyth and Ava Austen will be in attendance on the night to glam up proceedings and lead out the fighters.
Television X draw on their past experience of running boxing pay-per-view channel, Primetime, which screened fights from the likes of Mayweather, Khan, Pacquiao and Hatton. “I’m thrilled about our return to pay-per-view sports. And what better way to make our mark than with bare knuckle boxing,” said TVX CEO, Chris Ratcliff.
BKB has taken bare knuckle boxing from its controversial underground roots to the glitz and glamour of Indigo at the O2. The sell-out shows banish the notion of illicit backroom brawls and embrace the ethos of licensed, regulated sports, while losing nothing of the raw brutality of toe-to-toe combat.
BKB bosses, Jim Freeman and Joe Brown, have 11 red hot fights lined up, pairing fighters from BKB, traditional boxing and MMA. BKB 15 introduces the opening round of the sport’s first ever ‘Prizefighter’ tournament. The last fighter standing will net a cool prize pool of £10,000 – and a shot at the world super-middleweight championship recently vacated by pound-for-pound king Jimmy ‘The Celtic Warrior’ Sweeney.
Viewers can purchase the event by calling 0871 271 5599. Available on TVX Pay Per Night, Sky Channel 900. Pay-per-view from 8pm priced at £9.99. T&C’s apply.
BKB – the gloves are off!
