From The Corner is a weekly boxing entertainment show, which offers expert opinion, analysis and debate on the biggest events in the boxing calendar and the most exciting names in the sport.
The show is presented by David Alorka, an exciting young talent who has interviewed the likes of Diego Maradona, the late Kobe Bryant and former unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. Alorka’s co-host is Swarzy Macaly, a TV and breakfast radio presenter who founded Too Much Source, regularly fronts coverage of British basketball and was last year nominated as a Black History Month Next Generation Trailblazer.
The show is filmed exclusively at the JOE Studios in London with a bespoke set and curation. Each episode sees David and Swarzy play host to a variety of in-studio and remote guests from boxers and members of the DAZN on-air talent team, through to celebrities from outside the world of boxing who share an insight into their love of the sport.
From the Corner is initially scheduled to run for 16 weeks and will coincide with a stacked autumn-winter schedule of boxing on DAZN. The first episode, which is out now, sees Chairman of Matchroom Boxing, Eddie Hearn, join the hosts in-studio ahead of this weekend’s highly anticipated event headlined by Kid Galahad and Kiko Martinez in Sheffield.
The show’s launch comes just a few months after DAZN, the world’s biggest sports streaming platform, announced a ground-breaking partnership with Matchroom Boxing, establishing DAZN as the new home of boxing in the UK and Ireland.
Alfie Sharman, Head of Subscriptions at DAZN said: “Since launching in the UK and Ireland, JOE have been an excellent partner and it’s great to see such a unique collaboration come together to highlight the sport of boxing. Hosts David Alorka and Swarzy Macaly bring a genuine energy and enthusiasm to the show, we can’t wait to push on and deliver a fresh and unique series showcasing the many inspiring stories in the sport.”
Tom Slater, Brand Partnerships Director at JOE said: “This is JOE’s biggest foray into boxing to date and what a way to enter the ring. DAZN is the undisputed home of boxing and, as such, is the perfect partner for this show, while together we will bring credibility to the show’s content for which JOE is renowned.
“The show is a brilliant combination of entertainment, humour and unfiltered opinions on everything from the sport’s biggest stars, personalities and high-profile fights to the latest controversies and breaking news.”
