TVMS boosts boxing in Africa
With the return of boxing on the stages of the world, TV MEDIA SPORT has acquired, for Sub-Saharan Africa, exclusive rights of the most prestigious competition of the moment: The World Boxing Super Series, better known as the Muhammad ALI Trophy. MP & Silva, the sports media rights agency, acted as the sales agent on behalf of the World Boxing Super Series.
With an exceptional prize purse of US $ 50 million, 16 of the world's most successful boxers and 14 fight nights in the biggest capitals, TVMS has secured, for three years, the full package of media rights, on pay TV, free-to-air, digital and mobile for 47 African countries, with the objective of putting back boxing on the African screens.
For eighty years, the African continent, in love with this noble art, has been involved in some twenty world championships of the four major international federations, and has won medals at the Olympic tournament and amateur world championships.
The rarity of boxing on African national or private channels will finally have the opportunity to be fulfilled by this spectacular event which will feature qualifying rounds, quarter-finals, semi-finals and two finals for each season closing.
"TV media sport, a sports and television operator specialized in the African continent, is positioning itself on an innovative axis of a major popular sport," says Hédi HAMEL, TV Media Sport’s President. It will be very soon reinforced and strengthened by the launch of the boxing AFCON, for which we handle the rights for the 54 African countries."
