More boxing coming to UFC Fight Pass in revamp of digital platform?

July 31, 2019

Is a Fight Pass revamp coming?  If so, it will happen this fall.

According to Sports Business Journal’s John Ourand his sources tell him that the digital streaming service is set to relaunch by October.  Without saying, Ourand notes that there will be “addition of boxing programming” on FightPass.

UFC Fight Pass has Roy Jones, Jr.’s boxing promotion on its platform but one might assume that there is more boxing coming.  If we are to piece this together with the recent news that someone has been hired to Zuffa Boxing, it sounds as though that Fight Pass is diversifying to include more boxing.

Fight Pass commercials have hyped more combat sports in addition to MMA.  Ourand inquires as to how this will play with ESPN which has used UFC programming to bolster ratings.  Also, what does it due with DAZN’s streaming business.  Another query would be how Top Rank feels about one of ESPN’s properties becoming a competitor in the field of boxing.

The news is interesting considering that Zuffa Boxing is imminent and appears to have a home on Fight Pass.

Got something to say?
