Checkd Dev unveils Boxing News app with bet365 integration

Sports betting technology specialist Checkd Dev, part of award-winning Checkd Group, has launched the new Boxing News app after signing a long-term commercial partnership with leading boxing sports company iD Sports Media.

The cutting-edge mobile app, available on iOS and Android, is set to become the ultimate one-stop-shop for boxing fans around the world. As well as the latest news, views and videos from the world-renowned Boxing News team, the app will feature innovative free-to-play (FTP) predictions games, interactive live scorecards and bet placement journeys with operating partner bet365.

The launch of the Boxing News app is the first from a new multi-year commercial deal between Checkd Dev and iD Sports Media. With boxing in the midst of one of the most exciting periods in the sport’s history, the launch of Boxing News app will coincide with a series of mega-events: including Tyson Fury’s rescheduled undisputed title clash with Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua’s bout with MMA superstar Francis Ngannou and many, many more.

The app will feature exclusive content from the award-winning Boxing News team, providing fans with unrivalled insight into the sport and coverage from the biggest events in the boxing calendar. Launched in 1909, Boxing News has an unparalleled reputation for quality, impartial boxing reporting. The Boxing News app represents the perfect opportunity to fuse cutting-edge technology with the world’s leading boxing publication.

The launch of the Boxing News app is the latest milestone for Checkd Group’s in-house technology division, following on from the successful launch of its proprietary FlashPicks app across North America last year.

Adam Patton, Checkd Dev Managing Director, said:

We think there is a clear gap for a product like this within boxing, and it’s fantastic for us to be able to partner with someone with the credibility and long-standing tradition such as the Boxing News. We are delighted to deliver a product that we believe will resonate strongly with boxing enthusiasts all over the world. The combination of Checkd Dev’s unrivalled knowledge when it comes to sports betting technology and the contacts and expertise of the iD Sports Media team is a winning one. This launch is the first step in what will undoubtedly be a long and successful partnership.

Rob Tebbutt, Managing Director of iD Sports Media, said:

In seeking a partner to deliver the Boxing News app, we looked to identify a developer that could create a compelling product with a slick and intuitive user journey. Checkd Dev has provided an app that succeeds in engaging with the audience we know so well. 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.

Neil Fairweather, Chief Marketing Operations Office at bet365, said:

The team at Checkd Dev have created an app that will help to bring boxing fans closer to the action than ever before. The Boxing News app is a very engaging product, based around a brand identity that has roots going back more than a century. We look forward to working in partnership with both iD Sports Media and Checkd moving forward, as the boxing world prepares for a heavyweight title bout of historical significance.
