It’s on. On Saturday 26 August two of modern sport’s most spectacular superstars – Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor – will go head to head in Las Vegas for what some are calling the biggest boxing match of the century, live on Sky Sports Box Office on Virgin TV.
Bookings for this epic clash open today for Virgin TV customers (with a TiVo® or Virgin TV V6 box), where they can see the whole thing on Sky Sports Box Office. It costs £19.95 for SD and £20.95 for HD.
With an undefeated record in the ring (49 bouts, 49 wins, 26 knockouts), 11-time champion Floyd Mayweather Jr is rightly considered one of pugilism’s finest ever practitioners. The American’s legacy is already secured, but is he about to have it tarnished by UFC idol Conor McGregor? The fiery Irishman has taken the world of mixed martial arts by storm and thrives on confounding expectations. He’s a dangerous fella alright, and he could cause a shock next weekend in front of what’s expected to be record-breaking worldwide pay-per-view audience.
Notes to editors
Virgin TV V6 box, powered by TiVo
The new Virgin TV V6 box is Virgin Media’s smallest, smartest and fastest box yet. It is half the size of the previous TiVo box with 10x the power and packed with a load of extra features. It allows people to record six programmes while watching a seventh recording or stream from services such as iPlayer or Netflix. The Virgin TV V6 box is designed so that recordings can be accessed and streamed on other TiVo boxes around the home and support 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD) TV with Netflix and YouTube available in 4K from launch and more programming coming soon.
