Is This Golden Boy/DAZN Card NOT On DAZN?
Fear not friends…
You don't have to be confused about this Golden Boy/DAZN series that's starting up….Yes, portions of the Thursday, April 25 fight card advertised as a Golden Boy/DAZN mashup will be shown on a video platform.
No, the scraps, topped by an Yves Ulysse v Steve Claggett main event will NOT run on DAZN.
You can watch on the RING website, or on Golden Boy's Facebook page.
And, also, on select regional cable stations. But not DAZN. There's a reason for that…
Those shows will air on regional sports networks around the country, because DAZN helps fund them for the branding benefit of being on linear TV across the country.
Basically, it's like this: the DAZN crew knows that many folks who watch boxing can be found where they are already watching boxing. In this case, on linear TV. They are marketing to those folks, assuming they might ALSO like to watch on a stream, on their computer, or mobile device or off a ROKU on their big screen.
Ulysse and Claggett have done this before, in 2017, with Claggett getting the nod in a fun rumble:
