With balls, boxing rings and beatdowns, it’s one varied schedule of sporting action this week on Sky Sports
Sky Sports round-up
If, like us, your weeks are all about beaming multiple sporting events from your tellybox to your retinas while surrounded by a plethora of salty snacks, it’s safe to say you’re in for a cracker this week.
Read on below to see what’s in store...
Super League: Castleford Tigers v St Helens
Friday 22 March, 7pm, Sky Sports Arena/HD (CH 518/508)
After narrowly missing out on the title in 2017 and falling to eventual champions Wigan in last season’s play-offs, Castleford have started strong in 2019; winning their first four matches. Thirteen-time champions St Helens, however, are hot on their tails, with this fixture presenting a perfect chance to get an early victory over potential end-of-season play-off rivals.
NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder @ Toronto Raptors
Friday 22 March, 11.30pm, Sky Sports Main Event/HD (CH 511/501)
The Raptors have thrived under new head coach Nick Nurse. Stepping up from his role as Dwayne Casey’s assistant following the former’s departure to head up the Detroit Pistons, the Raptors are on the brink of booking their place in the play-offs. Oklahoma have been equally impressive, with this fixture potentially serving as a warm-up for a match-up in a few weeks’ time.
Over the next few days, you can also tune in to watch Boston Celtics take on high-flying Charlotte Hornets, as well as Houston’s tantalising trip to Milwaukee, while the Lakers face Utah in a crucial clash.
Boston Celtics @ Charlotte Hornets, Saturday 23 March, 10pm, Sky Sports Mix/HD (CH 520/510)
Houston Rockets @ Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday 26 March, 12am, Sky Sports Main Event/HD (CH 520/510)
Los Angeles Lakers @ Utah Jazz, Wednesday 27 March, 2.30am, Sky Sports Main Event/HD (CH 520/510)
Saturday 23 March, 7pm, Sky Sports Main Event/HD (CH 520/510)
See future stars of British boxing in a bumper night from Stratford’s Copper Box Arena. Charlie Edwards defends his WBC Flyweight title for the first time against Spaniard Angel Moreno, while unbeaten prospects Joshua Buatsi and Lawrence Okolie feature on the undercard. Buatsi is competing for the British light-heavyweight title, while Okolie is looking to claim his Commonwealth cruiserweight belt back.
T20 Cricket: South Africa v Sri Lanka
Sunday 24 March, 12.25pm, Sky Sports Cricket/HD (CH 514/504)
After two test matches, a whopping five one-day internationals and two T20 face-offs, Sri Lanka will finally end their tour of South Africa with this third and final T20 contest in Johannesburg. It’s been a gruelling few weeks, packed with sixes, catches, scattered stumps and shedloads of all-swinging, all-dancing action. Get set for a suitably thrilling conclusion.
WWE Late Night Smackdown
Tuesday 26 March, 12am, Sky Sports Action/HD (CH 517/507)
What better way to ring in the next working day than getting a seriously early start and digging in to some of the craziest wrestling action around as Smackdown’s biggest stars go fist to fist in front of capacity crowds across the USA.
Golf: 2019 WGC – Dell Technologies Match Play
Wednesday 27 March, 6pm, Sky Sports Golf/HD (CH 515/505)
Golfing superstars are heading to Austin for the second World Golf Championships event of the season. America’s Bubba Watson will no doubt be looking to clinch his second title in succession and bag the eye-watering $1.7 million prize money. To do so, he’ll have to overcome current world number one Dustin Johnson, as well as Brits Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy. No pressure then!
