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.

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.

The first episode, which is out now, saw Chairman of Matchroom Boxing, Eddie Hearn, join the hosts in-studio to preview last 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.

“We’re incredibly excited at DAZN to launch this brand-new boxing show, ‘From the Corner’, in partnership with JOE Media,” said Alfie Sharman, Head of Subscriptions at DAZN. 

“Since launching in the UK, JOE have been an excellent partner to us 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 an amazing energy and enthusiasm to the show, we can’t wait to push on and deliver a fresh and unique series highlighting the many inspiring stories in the sport.”
