I want to follow boxing like I used to long ago, but it seems most fights are bought up by SkySports and a number of other channels I don't have.

Any creative ways that I can still watch? Failing that, what's the best magazine/website to get into the habit of going to?

You can watch most fights online, but the streams are always a bit dodgy and the websites come and go. Google "free live sports streaming". You can get a lot of sports coverage free-to-air on European satellite - a basic kit starts at about £50 and is easy to install. There are various ways of pirating Sky Sports and other premium channels for a small fee, google "cardsharing" to find out how.

If you don't mind watching everything slightly delayed, worldboxingvideoarchive.com has high quality torrents of every fight there is, and they are usually up pretty sharpish after a fight.

Manny Pacquiao is fighting a young American, Tim Bradley, on 12 April. Pacquiao's fights have always been entertaining, and I regard the guy as one of the main reasons to watch boxing. He's practically a national hero in the Philippines. Trains hard, talent for KOs, graceful in public, smart, gives to charitable causes, etc.

Anyway, this fight is meant to be him getting back to his more aggressive style of boxing after a year of training and playing it safe. He suffered a couple of heavy losses, one controversially by points and another by a big knockout from a longtime rival, Juan Manuel Marquez. I'll be watching because I've followed his career for a long time now, and a win over Bradley would set him up to fight Marquez for a fifth time, meaning the two have been competing for over ten years.

Also, Bob Dylan seems to like him as well.

I'm just going to keep posting in this thread until someone gets interested, because I'm beginning to pick up the sport again. Again a big thank you to >>4744, it's a very good place to rekindle the interest.

Another interesting fighter right now is the Mexican 'Canelo' Alvarez (his nickname means 'cinnamon'), who had an awesome fight back in March with Alfredo Angulo. Canelo is on the heavier end for his class and hits very hard, but Angulo just shows such immense fortitude in this fight that he's won my respect. If any of you like to see people engaged in a battle of willpower, this is the fight for you. It ends in some controversy, too, but I agree with the decision all the way.

WBVA keeps tabs on ratios, but some 'free' torrents are offered where you can just leech after signing up. If anyone is looking for somewhere to get back into it, here's the first match to really capture me in a while. It's one of those 'free' torrents:


The fight also opens up interesting possibilities between Pacquaio facing Canelo, which again might lead on to another Marquez match. There's also been speculation for years about setting up Pacquaio versus Floyd Mayweather. Canelo lost to Mayweather, who admittedly is in the top two or three of his class, but has a toxic approach to the sport. What makes a Pac and Mayweather fight so interesting is that they're more or less the two best pound-for-pound fighters right now. Everything big in boxing seems to be happening at the welterweight and light-middleweight divisions.

Regular boxing is for ladies in case they break a painted toenail. But what are some of the big upcoming fights? I basically lost interest after I realised the judging was basically rigged.

>Regular boxing is for ladies in case they break a painted toenail.

Depends who you're watching. If heavy hitters are what you're about then take a look at the fights of Gennady Golovkin. He's fighting on the 18th.

I'm really only following Pacquiao at the moment, because I find him interesting all around as a public figure. On 22nd November he's fighting Algieri, a self-promoted American who really shouldn't pose much of a threat. Still, every fight he has is another step to either Marquez or Mayweather.

Here's a stream link, but the fight will be at 10pm ET (or 3am BST).

I'll just wait until tomorrow, I think, and use WBVA to get it.

For what might be the first time in .gs history, here's a spoiler tag that actually hides a spoiler:

Rubio gets knocked down in the second round, and doesn't make a convincing effort to get up in time for the count. Part of me thinks this was all strategy, knowing he couldn't hold it against Golovkin. He didn't make weight for the fight, and he was even smiling after a little bit of theatre over it.

That being said, Golovkin was still impressive. There's genuine power in his punches, and this is his 18th knockout on the trot. Boy is no joke.

I don't know if this question is acceptable for this thread, so I'll spoiler it in case it's a distraction.

Is organised crime still a big deal in British boxing? I get the impression that's how a lot of money laundering is done ('I made this money by selling boxing tickets, m'lud') but I wouldn't know.

Pacquaio and Algieri are competing in a weeks time. Training videos don't necessarily indicate who'll win a bout but they're fun exhibitions of skill.

On Pacquiao and Algieri: Pacquiao thoroughly outclassed Algieri, for anyone keeping track. It's worth downloading for anyone wishing to see the difference between a good boxer and a great boxer. Wonderful movement on both sides, but Pacquiao just has the superior speed and technique.

The fight also contained one pretty comical moment in the 9th where the commentators were interviewing Algieri's trainers. Just as he was launching into some script about how Algieri was being 'let out of the cage' and would start being more bold with Manny, Algieri takes a massive left cross and falls back on the canvas. It was brutal but to be expected with the gap in experience between them.

Pacquiao and Mayweather is now actually looking like a possibility sometime mid-2015, including some pretty neurotic clauses in the contract thanks to Mayweather's team, including a guaranteed rematch if Manny wins.

Here we go. May 2nd Pacquiao and Mayweather will be fighting in Vegas. Some would say that the fight is coming years too late, but this still makes for one of the most interesting fights in boxing history.

This is about as big a deal as it gets in terms of the sport.

He is alright, would buy him a pint and a curry, but he is just daft. He gave the mouth foaming mob a stick to beat him with and the other mouth foaming mob a champion of their "values" by equating homosexuality and paedophilia.

He is a great boxer, but any fight that isn't in Las Vegas will be marred by fights in the crowds as other Travellers set up matches of their own for the event.
