Boxing superstar Floyd 'Money' Mayweather and UFC champion, Conor McGregor trash talk one another ahead of their multi-million dollar bout.

Cape Town - World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and SuperSport have announced a new, multi-year agreement to broadcast WWE programming live for the first time in more than 50 countries throughout sub-Saharan Africa.

Starting Monday, August 28, SuperSport will air WWE's flagship shows Raw and SmackDown as well as WWE specials, including WrestleMania and SummerSlam.

"WWE is a global phenomenon, so securing the broadcast rights for SuperSport is a terrific coup," said Gideon Khobane, chief executive of SuperSport on their website.

"The athletes involved are larger than life figures who command huge followings. At long last our viewers will get to share in this entertainment spectacle in high definition. I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with WWE."

SuperSport channels S3, S4, S9 and SS10 will televise Raw on Tuesdays and SmackDown on Wednesdays, offering both live telecasts and same-day re-airs, and will broadcast all WWE specials live.

WWE programming will also be made available across some of DStv's general entertainment channels.
