For months, we have been trying to figure out what premium cable network would air Joshua-Klitschko. Anthony Joshua has a deal with Showtime, but Wladimir Klitschko has a deal with HBO. Well, it has been resolved. According to the networks, the fight, which is April 29th at London’s Wembley Stadium, will air live on Showtime at 4:45 p.m. ET., while HBO will televise the re-broadcast of the fight at 10:45 p.m. ET.
