Matchroom, DAZN Announce New Broadcast Team Featuring Tony Bellew, Maya Jama, Laura Woods

DAZN

Big things are coming for Matchroom Boxing and DAZN.

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn announced a big money deal earlier this month that would see his fighters leave Sky Sports to be broadcast exclusively on streaming service DAZN on a five-year deal.

The UK launch takes place next month and both parties have pulled out all the stops in terms of their new broadcast and talent team.

For one, radio legend Mike Costello will be the new lead commentator. The likes of Maya Jama and Laura Woods will also be broadcast presenters.

Meanwhile, former cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew and former middleweight champion Andy Lee will join as pundits.

The new team will debut on the first Fight Camp show which is set to be headlined by Conor Benn vs Adrian Granados on July 31.
