Matchroom Boxing are delighted to announce Bolton-based online electricals retailer AO as an associate sponsor for Saturday’s historic World Title triple-header topped by Katie Taylor vs. Miriam Gutierrez and Anthony Joshua’s Heavyweight World Title defence against Kubrat Pulev on Saturday December 12.
Irish star Taylor puts her Undisputed Lightweight crowns on the line against Mandatory Challenger Gutierrez at The SSE Arena, Wembley this weekend at the top of a bill that also sees Terri Harper defend her WBC and IBO Super-Featherweight World Titles against Katharina Thanderz and Rachel Ball take on Jorgelina Guanini for the vacant WBA Bantamweight Title.
Unified Heavyweight World Champion Joshua defends his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO World Titles against Mandatory Challenger Pulev in his first fight on UK soil in over two years after recapturing his crowns with a masterful unanimous decision victory over Mexico’s Andy Ruiz Jr at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia last year.
David Lawson, AO.com Managing Director, commented on the announcement: “After the rollercoaster few months we have all experienced, we can’t wait to bring some Saturday night entertainment to homes across the UK through our partnership with Matchroom. We look forward to introducing new customers to AO and maybe even helping them choose a new TV so they’re ready to watch the big fight in style.”
Eddie Hearn, Matchroom Sport Managing Director, said: “It’s brilliant to have eletricals retailer giant AO onboard as an associate sponsor for two mammoth events, starting with our historic World Title triple-header this weekend topped by Irish icon Katie Taylor that will be broadcast to millions around the world on Sky Sports and DAZN. Unified Heavyweight star Anthony Joshua puts his belts on the line against Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev on December 12 as we close out a difficult year with a blockbuster schedule of action.”
