Sky Deutschland lands Mayweather-Pacquiao rights

Sky Deutschland has secured the exclusive rights to the so-called ‘superfight’ between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

The pay-TV broadcaster will air live coverage of the 2nd May fight via its Sky Select service. Customers will be able to order the fight for an as yet undisclosed fee from 19th April.

Sky’s deal follows last month’s news that its sister network Sky Sports had taken the British and Irish rights to the long-awaited showdown, which is set to be the richest in boxing history.

Reports in the UK at the time suggested Sky had forked out between UK£10 million and UK£12 million for the rights.

Floyd Mayweather, widely regarded as the best pound for pound boxer in the world, will be defending his WBC, WBA and Ring magazine welterweight titles against Pacquiao, whose WBO welterweight belt will also be on the line in a bout that is being dubbed ‘The Fight of the Century’.
