Digital combat sports platform FITE announced today that it will be offering the Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) boxing match-up between Manny “PacMan” Pacquiao and Keith “One Time” Thurman on Saturday, July 20th, live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The WBA Welterweight Championship title will be on the line when the eight-division world champion Pacquiao takes on undefeated champion Thurman in the PBC on FOX Sports Pay-Per-View main event.

The live Pay Per View event will start at 9:00 PM ET. FITE is pleased to provide the event to viewers in the U.S. and Canada, and together with ITV to viewers in the UK and Ireland.

“FITE is built around bringing our users the most exciting events, and this PBC event is another perfect example,” said Kosta Jordanov, CEO of FITE. “This PBC event enables us to provide the premium digital destination for fans of all combat sports.”

PBC’s fight roster features the most talented athletes and most watched matches in the sport, aiming to bring boxing back to its roots to reach a new generation of fans. Leading up to the Pay Per View event, FITE will be offering exclusive pre-fight content including PBC Fight Camp, a four-part series that takes fans behind the scenes with Pacquiao and Thurman as they prepare for the July 20th title fight. This in-depth series, along with the Event Press Conference and Official Weigh-in will be available on the FITE platform.
