Irish fight fans will get to watch Dennis Hogan’s attempt to become Ireland’s latest world champion this weekend.

The Kildare native challenges Jermall Charlo for his WBC world middleweight title in the Barclays Center this coming Saturday.

The PBC promoted card will be aired Stateside on Showtime.

It was feared Irish fans may not get the chance to take the fight in live on TV, as no domestic broadcaster had taken up the Irish rights.

However, Irish fight fans with a Sky Box can watch the show and thus Hogan’s massive bout.

Premier Sports have picked up the rights to the card and will broadcast it across the UK and Ireland in the early hours of Sunday morning.

If you want to watch the Australian based fighter attempt to dethrone the undefeated American ‘Hitman’ tune into Channel 412 or 429 on your Sky Box.

Also on the card will be former Spike O’Sullivan foe Chris Eubank Jr, who takes on the man Andy Lee beat to become middleweight champion of the world Matt Korobov.

Those in American can watch on Showtime.
