Digicel, TV3 partnership team up to broadcast Parker-Ruiz fight in Samoa

New Zealand-Samoan heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker’s fight against Andy Ruiz on December 10 will be broadcast live on TV3 in Samoa.

The free broadcast of the fight has been made possible through a partnership between Digicel Samoa and Apia Broadcasting Limited, owners of TV3.

Digicel Samoa CEO Rory Condon, TV3 owner Hans Joe Keil and TV3 Managing Director Verona Parker officially announced the partnership on Friday with a sponsorship of the broadcast worth approximately $30,000 tala.

“Usually these fights are pay per view overseas and in those countries they have to pay to watch. However, Samoa our people are big supporters of Joseph Parker and his boxing career and TV3’s owner Joe Keil and Digicel are partnering up to bring Samoa the game for free,” said Mr Condon.

“It is a part of our service to the country and it’s not just about boxing but a way to acknowledge the support our people have for Parker and his boxing career,” he added.

Mr Keil said the hope is to be able to give people the chance to witness something great.

“It’s always a goal to try and bring what our people want to watch to Samoa, and that’s what this partnership with Digicel is about,” he said.

Duco Events and Promoters are close partners with TV3 and the broadcasting rights of Joseph Parker fights in Samoa are with TV3.
