Sky Sports has extended its TV rights deal with Matchroom Sport until 2021, meaning viewers can look forward to 120 nights of live boxing over the next six years.

Subscribers will be able to follow the progress of the next generation of British boxers, including James DeGale, Kell Brook, Lee Selby, Kevin Mitchell, Scott Quigg, Luke Campbell and Anthony Crolla.

Under the new agreement, Sky Sports will gain even more exclusively live access to one of the strongest stables in world boxing.

Fans of the sport will be able to enjoy 20 cards each year and follow all the build-up across Sky Sports' channels and digital outlets.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said the broadcaster is "the home of boxing".

"We’re thrilled to be able to offer a further five years of fights and fighters," he stated.

"A huge commitment to online and digital content will mean a more interactive experience for all fight fans, who will continue to enjoy the best quality and excitement of boxing on Sky Sports.”

Eddie Hearn, Managing Director of Matchroom Sport, said that the company's partnership with Sky Sports has taken British boxing "from small hall shows to filling major arenas all over the country".
