MUMBAI: Sports broadcaster Sony Six and Fight Sports will once again bring the best fights in the business to India. The sports channel is set to showcase the most anticipated fight of the year featuring current world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. against WBA welterweight interim champion, Andre Berto.

This fight, which takes place in Las Vegas, will be telecast live and exclusive on 13 September at 5:30 am IST, and is expected to last for three hours. With great anticipation of this being Mayweather?s last bout, should he win, he will match the 49-0 record of former heavyweight great Rocky Marciano. The fight will be live on both Sony Six and Sony Six HD.

The acquisition of the event features as another stellar follow-up to Fight Sports and Sony Six working together to bring India the Fight of the Century featuring Mayweather against Pacquiao in May 2015.

Sony Six and Sony Kix business head Prasana Krishnan said, ?We are committed towards driving and building a differentiated offering, and this fight is a definitive addition in making Sony Six truly ?the Home of Fight Sports?. Boxing, as a sport promises sheer inimitable thrills and it?s that innate quality of the sport that is resonating with our viewers who are hungry for such high intensity action. We are absolutely thrilled to bring to our viewers in India, what can clearly be defined as the most-awaited fight of the year.?

He added, ?Sony Six has established itself as a premier destination for showcasing superior combat sports such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), GLORY, World Class Championship Boxing events and TNA.?

The first week of August saw Mayweather announcing that Haitian/American Berto would step into the ring with him in Las Vegas, with the unbeaten champion aiming to equal Rocky Marciano?s fabled 49-0 record. In one corner, Andre Berto, is a former welterweight world champion, and is expected to step into the ring as a heavy underdog after losing three of his last six fights. In the other corner, nicknamed ?Money?, Floyd Mayweather Jr has been hailed as one of the greatest boxers of this era. The 38-year-old fighter remains unbeaten in 48 professional fights since 1996. However, it remains to be seen how the two fighters perform in the ring and if Berto could finally create a dent in the legacy of the forever polarizing ?Money?.
