London, UK (3 September 2020) Hennessy Sports are excited to announce the extension of it’s successful partnership with leading boxing digital publisher Seconds Out for this Saturday’s show headlined with the European Super-Featherweight Championship showdown between Samir Ziani and Alex Dilmaghani.

The undercard fights will again all feature in some capacity in the programme.

Promoter Mick Hennessy, who brokered the agreement with Seconds Out for his event two weeks ago – headlined by Shakan Pitters against Chad Sugden for the British Light-Heavyweight Championship – is thrilled to continue the partnership.
He said, “I was delighted with the original content produced by the Seconds Out team for the build up to Pitters v Sugden and look forward to them joining us for a great show this Saturday night headlined with Alex’s challenge for the European Super-Featherweight title. The whole undercard featuring Idris, Michael and Stevie can be viewed exclusively live on the Seconds Out YouTube channel and then switch over to the main event live on Channel 5 between Samir and Alex plus Isaac and again an opportunity to see the undercard. For the boxing fan, this is great news as it will guarantee that they will get to see every fight live on the night.”
“As a forward-thinking digital brand, Seconds Out is continually looking to create added value for our viewers,” said SO Director of Content Danny Flexen. “Providing boxing fans with the opportunity to watch an exciting set of fights, live and at no cost, is the latest example of this. We are grateful to Channel 5 and Hennessy Sports for their assistance in giving back to the boxing community in these extraordinary times.”
