FIGHT fans in the UK should expect to have to pay to watch the mouth-watering clash between unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez on September 16.

The fight – which is the biggest that can be made in the sport – was yesterday confirmed for the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with HBO broadcasting on pay-per-view in the US.

All the major broadcasters in the UK will be scrambling to win the rights, though that decision has not yet been made. Promoter Eddie Hearn, linked with Sky Sports and their Box Office branch, believes that wherever it goes, it will be pay-per-view.
