Who is Kate Abdo and why did DAZN boxing presenter leave Sky Sports News?

KATE ABDO is becoming the face of PPV boxing Stateside.

The British broadcaster left her role at Sky Sports in 2015 to join FOX in the US and is now fronting DAZN's coverage online – including the Canelo Alvarez vs Callum Smith bout.

At Sky, Abdo hosted the pay-per-view boxing events, Champions League Football, as well as Sky Sports News coverage, including Deadline Day.

But after being loaned to Fox to help cover the Women's World Cup, she ended up joining permanently in 2017.

The Manchester-born relocated to America to host their Champions League, Europa League, World Cup, FA Cup, and Bundesliga coverage.

Abdo also helped cover Premier Boxing Champions including their 'Inside PBC Boxing' on Fox.

But after Fox lost MLS rights and the cancellation of ‘Inside PBC’, Abdo left the American broadcasters.

She then came back to the UK to work for CBS Sports as the host of the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, according to Wikipedia.

Abdo did return to cover boxing, however, as she worked for DAZN in Texas to cover Canelo Alvarez's fight against Callum Smith.
