*NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2018 – *DAZN, the live and on-demand sports streaming
platform, announced it will carry the Ali Trophy Final between George
Groves and Callum Smith in the Super Middleweight edition of the World
Boxing Super Series. The card will stream live in the U.S. on Friday, Sept.
28 at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT from Indoor Sports Hall at King Abdullah Sports
City in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

WBA Super Middleweight tilist Groves (28-3, 20 KOs), back in action after
an unanimous decision win against Chris Eubank Jr., will take on the
undefeated Callum Smith (24-0, 17 KOs) in the third defense of his belt.

the last year and we’re excited to bring the Groves-Smith final to the
U.S.,” said Joe Markowski, DAZN SVP, North America. “When you consider the
fact that we offer a one-month free trial to each subscriber, this will be
