Ladbrokes backs Wasserman hot prospects on Channel 5

Ladbrokes has entered an exclusive partnership with legendary promoter Wasserman Boxing to offer the public free-to-air fights to be broadcast live on Channel 5 for British terrestrial audiences. 

The deal between Ladbrokes, Wasserman Boxing and Channel 5 will see a minimum of six free-to-air fights take place in 2023 featuring the best British boxing prospects for men’s and women’s boxing.

Wasserman Boxing’s 2023 schedule kicks off with a huge World Title fight for Manchester boxer Lyndon Arthur, who takes Argentina’s Braian Nahuel Suarez for the IBO World Light Heavyweight Championship on Friday March 24 at the University of Bolton Stadium.

The showdown will be followed by a must win contest for Harlem Eubank, who will be looking to establish himself as the latest star name from his famous fighting family when he returns to London’s legendary York Hall to take on Mexico’s Christian Uruzquieta on Friday 31 March.

“Ladbrokes is one of the world’s leading entertainment brands and we’re delighted to be working with them to bring first class, free-to-air boxing to British public,” said Wasserman Head of Global Boxing, Kalle Sauerland.

“We have an action-packed schedule planned for 2023, that is going to see huge fights, big names and upcoming stars all feature, live and free on Channel 5.”

Kelly Rose, Head of Brand Marketing at Ladbrokes, commented: “We’re thrilled to partner with Wasserman Boxing bringing entertaining, top-drawer free-to-air fights on Channel 5 in 2023. It’s going to be an incredibly exciting year ahead and we can’t wait for the knockout action to get underway.”
