Yeah basically its not televised for home viewing on cable television here.
Only at the pubs & clubs that have paid for the sky ringside ppv event.
No, it is free to get into the Pubs to watch the fight.
Its on early in the morning (Aussie West Coast Time), so most people get a breakfast or early lunch from the Pub's restaurant while watching the fight.

We have a PPV corporate culture here in Australia.
If a match is shown live from USA into homes, its on PPV.
The reason Darchinyan's fight aint available for home viewers is because the PPV timeslot has been taken up by the UFC event instead.

The only live boxing you get on cable is Australian live Friday Night Fights 1-2 times a month. Featuring local talent & some journeyman too.
