Showtime to show Tyson Fury fight on Facebook and YouTube

American television network Showtime Sports has announced plans to stream Tyson Fury’s upcoming heavyweight fight on its social media platforms.

Showtime Boxing International will exclusively live stream the Fury vs Francesco Pianeta bout to US audiences via its Facebook page and on Showtime Sports’ YouTube channel.

Fury fights on a Windsor Park card topped by Carl Frampton, the Belfast boxer’s interim WBO featherweight title defence against Luke Jackson, and the rest of the event, will all be streamed by Showtime.

The 18th August fight night is Showtime’s 24th live boxing offering of 2018, and will mark the sixth time this year that the company has live streamed a fight onto its sports social media platforms.
