Ives will now take the lead for the coverage of the highly anticipated unification fight in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

She will be working alongside Carl Frampton, David Haye and Steve Bunce to analyse the fight action.

She is no stranger to the sporting world having worked for Uefa, Discovery Sports and TNT.

The presenter has also starred for Premier League Today and ITV during an impressive career.

Her love of sport “stems from her teenage years, where she competed as a High Board Diver, and swimmer to a County and National standard, an avid football fan”, according to her LinkedIn page.

Ives has not only starred in front of the camera but has also hosted sporting events such as the United Legends dinner event for Manchester United and the ‘Road To Victory’ Awards celebration Dinner for West Ham last year.

She also refers to herself as a “professional talker.”

She has built up an impressive following on social media with over 25k fans on Instagram.
