This fight, which takes place in Las Vegas, will be telecast live and exclusive on September 13, 2015 at 5.30 AM (IST), and is expected to last for three hours. The fight will be aired live on both Sony Six and Sony Six HD.

On the acquisition of the high-profile fight, Prasana Krishnan, Business Head, Sony Six and Sony Kix, 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 is 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.”

“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,” he added.

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 38-year-old fighter remains unbeaten in 48 professional fights since 1996.
