Checkd Group Teams Up with ID Sports Media to Launch Boxing News App

Boxing News will feature free-to-play prediction games, interactive live scorecards and bet placement journeys with Bet365

Checkd Group’s sports betting tech division, Checkd Dev, has teamed up with boxing sports specialist iD Sports Media to launch its new Boxing News app. Available on both Android and iOS devices, the new app seeks to become a one-stop-shop for fans of professional boxing.

Boxing News is the culmination of a multi-year tie-up between Checkd Dev and iD Sports Media. The new app seeks to capitalize on the fast growth of the boxing sector, allowing the two companies to tap into the demand for boxing content.

The launch of the Boxing News app is set to coincide with major matches, such as Tyson Fury’s fight against Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua’s game against Francis Ngannou, among others.

Checkd Dev added that, in addition to boxing news, videos and blog posts, Boxing News will feature free-to-play prediction games, interactive live scorecards and bet placement journeys with Bet365. Furthermore, the app will feature exclusive content from the knowledgeable Boxing news team, which will provide fans with insights and event coverage.

The Boxing News app will capitalize on the long history of Boxing News. The boxing news outlet can trace its history back to 1909 and is one of the authorities when it comes to boxing content. The leading publication now seeks to align itself with the modern age and conquer the digital sector as well.

The New App Is Based around a Strong Brand Identity

Adam Patton, Checkd Dev’s managing director, believes that the Boxing News app will fill an important niche. He also noted that his team is excited to be able to partner with “someone with the credibility and long-standing tradition such as Boxing News.”

Patton added that the pairing of Checkd Dev’s tech experience and iD Sports Media’s sports expertise is going to be a “winning combination.”

This launch is the first step in what will undoubtedly be a long and successful partnership.

With 2024 shaping up to be a huge year for the sport, we are convinced the Boxing News app will establish itself as a must-have for boxing fans and become an essential part of fight nights for hardcore and casual boxing fans alike.
