Mayweather vs. McGregor showdown on OSN Sports Box Office HD across ME

OSN, a leading entertainment network in the region, is bringing one of the most anticipated fights of all time to viewers across the Middle East, when Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor face-off in a boxing showdown, live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Fans of the undefeated boxer Mayweather, and UFC lightweight champion, McGregor, can catch the live pay-per-view boxing event as they go head-to-head in Las Vegas, on OSN Sports Box Office HD, on the morning of Aug. 27.
Andy Warkman, SVP, sports & production, OSN, said: “OSN is all about delivering big events and big nights of sport to our customers and none come bigger than this fight. Mayweather vs. McGregor is the most anticipated event of the year and OSN is very proud to be bringing the fight exclusively to MENA.”
Billed as “The Money Fight,” Mayweather retired in 2015 with an unblemished 49-0 professional boxing record. He is widely regarded as one of the best defensive fighters ever, and prides himself on his ability to evade punishment with his skilful movement about the ring.
A win for Mayweather would move him ahead of former heavyweight great Rocky Marciano, who also retired with a perfect 49-0 career record. McGregor, however, is the UFC’s reigning lightweight champion and former featherweight champion, known as much for his technical ability as his explosive knockout power.
The Mayweather vs. McGregor showdown can be purchased at OSN sales kiosks, via the MyOSN app or in advance for the price of $10, or for $20 from Aug.14 onwards.
Additionally, the fight can be ordered by calling OSN.

Bahri’s maritime solutions on show

Saudi shipping company Bahri is demonstrating its commitment to advancing the growth of maritime industry and improving security in the logistics business at the International Defense Exhibition (IDEX) and Naval Defense and Maritime Security Exhibition (NAVDEX).

The events are being held under the patronage of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, president of the UAE and supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces in Abu Dhabi from Feb.17-21.

Khaled bin Hussain Biyari, assistant minister of defense — executive affairs; General Awwad Eid Al-Balawi, director general of Saudi Arabian Border Guards; and other officials visited Bahri’s booth during the events.

As part of its participation, Bahri is showcasing its maritime capabilities and innovation-driven solutions at the largest defense expo in the Middle East. The company is also highlighting its unmanned surface vessels (USVs) at its booth. Powered by MAP Pro technology, which transforms any vessel into an autonomous one, Bahri’s USVs are capable of numerous applications, including gathering data, surveillance and reconnaissance. In addition, the vessels offer significant cost savings and reduce human workload in high-risk operations. 

Bringing together more than 1,310 specialized companies from 62 countries, both events offer a strategic business platform for exhibitors to present their latest naval, maritime and coastal security technology, equipment and crafts, and explore partnership opportunities with local and international companies. 

Abdullah Aldubaikhi, CEO of Bahri, said: “Events such as IDEX and NAVDEX provide a unique opportunity to gather new insights into new security technologies that can help companies thrive in a safe and secure trade. With Saudi Arabia being at the forefront of efforts aimed at maintaining stability and security in the region, maritime security is a key focus area for the Kingdom.” 

Aldubaikhi added: “Bahri’s presence at IDEX and NAVDEX 2019 is part of our strategy to further strengthen our offerings to enhance the Kingdom’s maritime capabilities and support its transformation as the world’s leading logistics hub. The exhibition also provides us with an excellent platform to connect with our customers and explore new partnership opportunities that will further drive our ambitious expansion plans.”

Bahri Logistics, one of the five business units within Bahri and one of the top 10 breakbulk carriers in the world, operates six new state-of-the-art multipurpose vessels that are capable of carrying different types of cargo, including project, ro-ro, breakbulk, equipment, and container cargo.
