PPV.COM MAKES ITS 2024 DEBUT LIVE STREAMING THE JOSHUA-NGANNOU HEAVYWEIGHT RUMBLE!

PhilBoxing.com





Jim Lampley and Kevin Iole to Co-Host Exclusive Live Viewer Chat
and Provide Fight Week Features
Friday, March 8, Beginning at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT

NEW YORK (February 23, 2024) -- PPV.COM, which does not require a subscription, returns to the ring, in its 2024 season debut, live streaming to boxing fans, in the U.S. and Canada, arguably the most intriguing fight in recent memory -- the heavyweight battle between former two-time unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and MMA legend and newly minted World Boxing Council Top-10 heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou -- Friday, March 8, beginning at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT. The Joshua-Ngannou heavyweight rumble will emanate from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Priced at $69.99, the Joshua-Ngannou event can be ordered by clicking here PPV.COM | Joshua vs. Ngannou.

The PPV.COM Joshua vs. Ngannou live stream will once again feature Hall of Fame broadcaster Jim Lampley, who will be paired with award-winning combat sports journalist Kevin Iole, co-hosting an exclusive viewer chat in real time. Jim will also be providing exclusive fight week commentary and reports for PPV.COM's website and social platforms.

"Joshua vs Ngannou is the fight which should tell us whether the surprising result of Fury vs Ngannou was more about surprisingly good Ngannou or surprisingly bad Fury," Lampley said. "If Fury’s inability to master a decided underdog was caused by negligent training, inattention to detail, taking an MMA-origin opponent lightly, then an alert, attentive, trained and ready Joshua should handle that opponent with relative ease, and re-establish that boxing is a different craft than the craft through which Ngannou earned his identity. But if Ngannou is the rare ring competitor who can transfer MMA skills over to boxing, he should show it against Joshua, who is slightly smaller and less physically imposing than Fury. My first guess is Ngannou’s showing against Fury has created an incentive which will re-light Joshua’s fire, just what he needs after two losses to the superior technician Oleksandr Usyk. That doesn’t mean Ngannou won’t have his moments -- he’s proven he’s a formidable competitor. But it does mean that in most instances boxers fighting within boxing rules have the edge against MMA gladiators, and Joshua has enough left in his tank to gain a form of public relations victory over Fury by beating Ngannou. I say that from a distance, and I reserve the right to modify that outlook when I have had a chance to see them up close."

PPV.COM, which does not require a subscription, will offer Fury vs. Usyk in the U.S. and Canada. iNDEMAND, the parent company of PPV.COM, will also be carrying the event through its network of cable and telco operators in the U.S. and Canada via providers including, Xfinity, Spectrum, Contour, Optimum, Fios, Rogers, Bell, SaskTel, and Telus, among others.
