India's very own premier boxing promoters Marine Pro Boxing Promotions has joined hands with FITE TV, a leading global digital network which broadcasts sporting events to over 2.5 Million audiences across the globe.
US-based FITE TV has broadcasted for some of the world's prominent sports properties like WWE, UFC, ONE Championship, Top Rank, Match room Boxing, AEW Wrestling, Impact Wrestling, Bare Knuckle FC among others.
“We will be exploring the PPV (Pay Per View) format in India & see the results since our Indian audience has showered their love to other sports apart from Cricket like MMA, Football & NBA to name a few which has shown high viewership. So before professional boxing hits the commercial Sports television networks we thought to look at how do we perform on Digital Networks and we couldn't find any better live-streaming network than FITE. Thanks to their team who has shown great enthusiasm & valued advice on how we could make pro boxing stream to a wider audience in India,” Devraj Das from Marine Pro Boxing Promotions noted in an exclusive statement.
Marine Pro Boxing Promotions have already held multiple events in both India and abroad and was expected to return on August 1 in Mumbai. The event, however, had to be postponed due to the on-going health crisis and the team is expected to co-promote with Evolution Fight Series in Thailand this month itself.
