The Nordic Entertainment (Nent) Group has acquired exclusive rights in the Nordic region to next month’s boxing world title rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

Taking place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on February 22, the fight will be available live on Nent’s Viaplay streaming service as a pay-per-view event.

Nent will also offer build-up documentaries on Viaplay over the coming weeks.

In their previous meeting in December 2018, WBC champion Wilder and former WBA (Super), IBF, IBO and WBO belt-holder Fury battled to a controversial draw at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
