Six world title fights in 10 hours of non-stop boxing is planned by Sky Television for 9 November, half of it by a pounds 9.95 pay-per-view subscription.

Sky will first show three of the world title bouts on Frank Warren's Manchester promotion, then switch to pay-per-view for the triple heavyweight championship show from the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.

It is Sky's second subscription venture, the last being Frank Bruno's WBC defence against Mike Tyson in March. Warren's promotion features Nigel Benn v Steve Collins (WBO super-middleweight), Prince Naseem Hamed v Remigio Molina (WBO featherweight), and Ronald Wright v Ensley Bingham (WBO light- middleweight). King's bill has Mike Tyson v Evander Holyfield (WBA), Henry Akinwande v Alexander Zolkin (WBO) and Michael Moorer v Frans Botha (IBF).
