The partnership will see former two-weight World Champion Carl Frampton’s future fights on BT Sport in addition to former WBO Super-Welterweight World Champion Liam Smith and former WBO Lightweight World Champion Terry Flanagan, along with up-and-coming stars such as Heavyweight sensation Daniel Dubois and Light-Heavyweight knockout artist Anthony Yarde.

BT Sport Box Office, which has already been allocated Sky HD channel 494 will be offered on BT TV and Virgin Media from later this year, with a number of events promised for that channel. In the meantime, Fight Nights during May and June will continue to be available on the main BT Sport channels, at no extra cost for subscribers.

Andy Haworth, managing director of strategy and content, BT Consumer, said: 
“It is a golden era for British Boxing and never has the Warren stable of fighters looked more exciting, with a great line up of established names and up-and-coming young fighters.BT Sport subscribers can look forward to a fantastic summer of boxing.”
