Indingo-Crawford to slug it out live on NBC
The long-awaited Julius Indongo and Terrance Crawford boxing fight will be broadcast live on the Namibia Broadcasting Corporation (nbc) on nbc1 at 02H00 on 20 August.
The national broadcaster announced the move this week and said that since the signing of the channel distribution agreement with Kwesé Free TV Limited, the NBC has been able to provide the nation with a host of live international sporting events on its DTT platform. Kwesé Free Sports on nbc6 is the latest addition in channels on the nbc DTT platform.
Local son of the soil, and Unified WBA Super, IBF and IBO Super Lightweight Champion of the World, Julius Indongo will trade leather with Terrance Crawford at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The winner of the Crawford-Indongo fight will then become the unified light welterweight champion and will hold all four (4) of the major titles in the weight class.
NBC Executive Producer: Sport, Sackie Shikufa reiterated: “As promised with the launch of Kwesé Free Sports on nbc6, the live free-to-air coverage of some of the best in global sports is now available to the Namibian public at large. Our mandate to educate, inform and entertain remains our number one priority; hence the nbc team worked hard to attain the rights to this boxing match.”
The NBC holds the bragging rights in being the only local television station to broadcast the match and clinched a sub-license agreement which will allow the broadcaster to simulcast the boxing match on nbc1. The most anticipated boxing match of the year will air on nbc1 at 02H00 on 20 August 2017.
