London, England (August 25, 2023) – BOXXER is delighted to announce a new partnership with IFX Payments, who will become the Official Foreign Exchange and Payments Partner of BOXXER. 

Founded in 2005, IFX Payments has grown to become a leading global foreign exchange, payment and financial technology provider. Headquartered in London and with offices around the world, IFX delivers advanced payment, treasury and financial management solutions – with the view to provide a frictionless and complete digital payments experience for businesses of all kinds. 

BOXXER shows air LIVE and exclusively on Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland, after the leading UK sports broadcaster signed a four-year deal with BOXXER in 2021. The rapidly-growing promotion is home to a world-class stable of fighters including Liam Smith, Joshua Buatsi, Chris Billam-Smith, Savannah Marshall, Caroline Dubois, Richard Riakporhe, Adam Azim and many more. 

The two-year partnership between IFX Payments and BOXXER will see IFX handle BOXXER’s FX transactions as well as being positioned in 360-degree fashion across a number of BOXXER events each year, with branding on the ring toblerones, press and media backdrops, and in-venue screens; alongside MC mentions during the broadcast. 

The partnership will commence with BOXXER’s next event on 2nd September, as Liam Smith and Chris Eubank Jr finally meet in their hugely-anticipated rematch at Manchester’s AO Arena in front of 20,000 fans – live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK & Ireland, and a further 150+ territories globally, including ESPN+ in the US and Canada. A stacked undercard includes Adam Azim v Aram Fanyan, Frazer Clarke v Dave Allen, Florian Marku v Dylan Moran, Mark Heffron v Jack Cullen, and much more. 

BOXXER’s founder and CEO Ben Shalom said: “We’re delighted to announce this new partnership with IFX Payments, a market leader in foreign exchange, payments and fintech solutions. Their commitment to innovation aligns closely with our own – and we look forward to kickstarting the partnership with a huge show on Saturday 2nd September, as Liam Smith and Chris Eubank Jr go head-to-head in one of the biggest events of the year.” 

Simon Hughes, Sales Director at IFX Payments said:This agreement highlights our commitment to partner with organisations that share our philosophy of delivering best-in-class, customer-centric solutions, and services.

We’re looking forward to working with BOXXER over the next two years and the opportunities this partnership will unlock for our business”.
