Wilder vs Washington: Stream Tonight’s PBC Heavyweight Title Fight In VR

by Charles Singletary • February 25th, 2017

NextVR seems to be quite the busy bee. The virtual reality company continues to be a constant when it comes to live streaming major events, having just wrapped up highlights from New Orleans for NBA All-Star Weekend.

This weekend, VR users will have the best seats in the house as FOX Sports and NextVR partner up to stream three Premier Boxing Champions matches including the long-awaited fight between undefeated fighters Deontay Wilder and Gerald Washington for the heavyweight title.

FOX Sports regularly broadcasts big sporting events. For example, they’ve had a running partnership with the UFC for headlining fights or even the fights leading up to pay-per-view cards. The partnership with the PBC is one that was established last year when NextVR and Fox Sports teamed up to broadcast Garcia vs Guerrero. This year they’ll be giving us a look into three matches, topped off with a meeting between two undefeated heavyweights:

  • Match 1: 10-round heavyweight fight between hard-hitting Dominic Breazeale (17-1, 15 KOs) and undefeated Izuagbe Ugonoh (17-0, 14 KOs).
  • Match 2: Junior middleweight title fight between once-beaten Tony Harrison (24-1, 20 KOs) and undefeated Jarrett Hurd (19-0, 13 KOs).
  • Match 3: Title fight against undefeated heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (37-0-0, 36 KOs) as he defends his world title against unbeaten contender Gerald Washington (18-0-1, 12 KOs).

The live broadcast starts tonight at 8 p.m. ET and can be accessed via the NextVR app on Oculus Home or Google Play.
