Whisper, the UK-based sports production firm, has been appointed to deliver the host broadcast feed of the Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury boxing fight in Saudi Arabia on February 26.

Whisper has said it will provide “ambitious and entertaining” coverage to worldwide audiences, with international coverage already secured through arrangements with broadcasters including BT Sport Box Office in the UK, and ESPN+ pay-per-view in the US.

The Whisper host broadcast feed will be enhanced by a deal with the Chapter 3 Graphics firm, which will provide audio-visual effects.

Last year, the production firm produced host broadcast coverage of a rematch between heavyweights Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk.

Whisper’s chief executive, Suni Patel, has said: “This fight has been a long time coming, and we are thrilled to have been chosen to deliver the world feed host broadcast by Skill Challenge Entertainment after our successful delivery of Usyk v Joshua last year.

“These two fighters are exciting young talents with lots to prove and we can’t wait to capture the energy and emotions, so viewers feel part of the event.”

This latest deal adds to Whisper’s growing portfolio of sports clients, which includes a contract to produce coverage of the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games for Channel 4, the UK rightsholder, struck last year.

In 2022, it delivered the UEFA Women’s European Championships national team soccer competition with the UK’s public-service BBC and was also the host broadcaster for the postponed 2021 Rugby League World Cup.

Whisper, in addition, currently produces broadcast coverage of action from motorsport’s prestigious Formula 1 and W Series, as well as top-tier international cricket and rugby, while in January it struck a two-year deal with the UK's Wimbledon tennis championships.
