The Irish-language terrestrial channel will air a portion of the 18-fight – 17 finals, 1 international contest – card from the National Stadium this weekend.
It is another encouraging move into boxing from TG4 who last week
Boxing has been afforded just over a two-and-a-quarter hours slot. This is slightly down on the two-and-a-half hours that featured on RTÉ2 last year where five finals were shown.
The broadcast will begin at 8:45pm and end at 11:03pm
Senior finals night will be returning to TG4 for the first time since 2015 and commentary will be provided by Seán Bán Breathnach – commentator for both pro shows which featured on the channel last year.
Today the IABA also released a running order for the night which states that boxing begins at 5:45pm.
The schedule does not specify which bouts will be shown live on TG4 – however it can be ascertained that it will be a selection of contests from the latter portion of the bill.
The running order, of course, is subject to change.
