ESPN+ to carry Dubois-Joyce in U.S.

EjqQJpOWsAEzpbE.0 - ESPN+ to carry Dubois-Joyce in U.S.

The fight will air on BT Sport in the UK.

In an unsurprising but extremely welcome move, ESPN+ will carry the November 28th clash between Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce, which takes place in London’s Church House.

In case the Tweet doesn’t show up for you, the main card kicks off at 5:00 Eastern with unbeaten super welterweight Hamzah Sheeraz against Argentine journeyman Guido Nicolas Pitto. The undercard, which features the return of WBO mandatory super lightweight contender Jack Catterall, kicks off four hours earlier at 1:00.

UK viewers can enjoy the card on BT Sport.

“The future of the heavyweight division will be seen live on ESPN+ Nov. 28,” said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum. “Daniel Dubois is a tremendous young fighter, but Joe is older and had an incredibly successful amateur career. I am glad that American fight fans will have an outlet to watch one of the year’s best fights.”

I don’t think I need to sell you guys on this one; it’s unquestionably the best fight left on the November schedule, a clash between two extremely destructive finishers on the edge of world title contention. Plus, it should finish well before the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. debacle later that evening, so there’s no excuse not to watch besides a lingering Thanksgiving food coma.
