As we see it, there’s two types of boxing you can enjoy. There’s the traditional no-holds-barred traditional British classics, and then there’s the more fancy stuff from across the pond. You can catch either of them at boxing pubs, by using MatchPint's pub finder.
The UK show-downs, like Prizefighter and Fight Night, are normally shown on Sky Sports (though ESPN sometimes like to chuck in a bit of the old fisty-cuffs). The glamour nights in Vegas and New York tend to be Box Office numbers and they’re notoriously difficult to find. If you don’t want to fork out and get it on the box at home, then your best bet is to head down the pub, or a nearby sports bar, and catch the fight with a beer in your hand. Option B is to find a good local by looking through our full list of sports bars and checking their opening times and then give them a ring. Who knows, when you ask, even if they weren’t going to, they might decide to stick it on.
It’s an exciting time for British Boxing with Amir Khan whipping up all kinds of action inside and outside the ring, and there are other boxers with plenty of points to prove – Carl Froch and Kell Brook topping that list. Then there’s the question of what on earth David Haye is doing with himself. Not sitting pretty with his feet up as he’d have us believe.
