British media group Perform invests $1 billion to stream boxing in America

On Thursday, Perform Group​ announced it has invested $1 billion in British boxing promoter Eddie Hearn’s company Matchroom Boxing; the eight-year deal will bring 16 fights per year to America, all shown exclusively on DAZN​ (pronounced “Da Zone”) for subscribers. […] DAZN has grown quickly in markets like Canada, where it streams NFL games, and in Japan, where MLB is its most popular offering. Boxing may not be the most obvious sport to start with for an American launch, and DAZN will be competing with HBO and Showtime in the boxing broadcast business.- Daniel Roberts, Yahoo Finance
