Let me start by saying, I'm not a sports person. Growing up, my favorite sport was wrestling. Which is extremely fake on television. At least the shows I've watched.
But for awhile, and especially so since 2016, I've been interested in boxing. But for the life of me, there's like six things you need to get, to watch everything.

HBO, Showtime, that weird new subscription service, unspecified other things...
It's ridiculous! Do any of you watch it, and if so, how?

I love Boxing as much as i hate wwe. They are bunch of fake clowns while UFC & MMA are providing real entertainment.

Boxing requires mental and physical sharpness. It's a cerebral sport that requires planning, adaptation and a lot of conditioning. And unlike in team sports, you have to do everything yourself. You're both the commander and the army.

There's a certain serenity to the whole thing. Staying cool in the moment, seeing clearly through the violence, identifying your opponent's options and adapting in anticipation. Having a punch fly past your face as you slip for the counter is one of the greatest feelings in watching ufc online.

There's no better adrenaline rush. You just love boxing, it's something somebody has inside them.

pennylessz :
HBO is actually phasing out boxing now so all you need as far as TV is Showtime. The streaming services are indeed becoming completely ridiculous. I have ESPN+ for college football and MMA,WWE Network,HBO Now,TubiTV,PlutoTV,Shudder,and soon when HBOMax launches I'll have that too since it will be free for Directv subscribers(Which I happen to be).

I love boxing as well but the promoters and multiple title belts is why most casual fans have been moving over to MMA for the last 10 years. Promoters protecting their fighters from possible losses vs other skilled competitors is the prime example of why the fans are switching. UFC is the big dog as far as MMA is concerned and whoever Dana White tells them who they are fighting they have no choice but to do it,No ducking,no excuses,the best fight the best and that's the way it should be.

I've been a Deontay Wilder fan for a long time now and it's obvious that Anthony Joshua doesn't want to fight him.In the previous negotiations to make the fight happen Wilder gave him a MUCH bigger share of the purse and agreed to all his demades..and he suddenly starting making excuses through his promoter.

But anyway on to your question,I stream it through certain websites that operate in a gray area and I'm not sure I'm allowed to post the link in here,if now you are free to PM me and I'll be more than happy to help you out with it.

I used to be pretty big into boxing but I lost touch with it recently since I don't have TV or Wi-Fi at home, but someone at work likes occasionally watching during work so I watch too.

The last big match that I saw was the Pacquiao vs Broner in Vegas and I saw that one up close so it was super intense.

I've never really got to much into boxing just seeing some fights here and there. I don't know why I do find it entertaining to watch I guess I'll just blame it on laziness.

I watch some boxing highlights on Youtube but I rarely watch full fights. I think the only ones I watched from beginning to end were the KSI vs. Logan Paul ones.

Not because I'm European but I supported KSI in both of them. He should have won the first one instead of it being a draw and I'm glad he won the second one. Logan Paul is just such a dickhead and I'm glad he got what was coming to him. It's pathetic how he landed illegal punches and then tried to appeal the verdict like hello?

Though credit where credit is due, aside from the illegal shots Logan did way better in the second one and he's only 10% of the dickhead that is his brother Jake. Garbage human being that one.

I've never really watched boxing although that is mainly because I never really had the chance to get into it in the first place although I would like to at least try to get into it at some point.
