Eubank vs Smith Opens The 2023 Calendar Year For BOXXER And Sky Sports Boxing

A source has told NoSmokeBoxing that contracts haven’t been signed yet but if the highly-anticipated 160-pound domestic clash between Brighton’s Chris Eubank Jr (32-2, 23 KOs) and Liverpool’s Liam Smith (32-3-1, 19 KOs) gets finalised, it will take place on Saturday 21st of January, 2023 at the 20,000-capacity AO Arena in Manchester, England. (The date was first reported by International Boxing News)

Eubank vs Smith will headline a major BOXXER event on a Sky Sports platform. Various reports have suggested that the middleweight fight will land on Sky Sport’s pay-per-view platform: Sky Sports Box Office at an undetermined price point.

Should Eubank Smith be on PPV, it would be the first of two BOXXER PPVs in a 3-week period with the rematch between Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall on February 4 also expected to be a box office offering.

KSI is also expected to compete on DAZN PPV on Jan 14 likely against Joe Fournier and the 3-belt light heavyweight championship contest between Artur Beterbiev and Anthony Yarde may also be a BT Sport PPV event on Jan 28.

There will be clarity on both events over the weekend but that could mark 4 British boxing PPVs in 4 consecutive weekends, albeit KSI’s audience is different. With the current financial climate being the way it is, this is definitely less than ideal, to say the least.
