Default Calzaghe Kessler coverage?

It's not on Main event and Setanta sports is only available for satelite subscribers so does anyone know if any pubs will have it on in Melbourne?

All it means mate is many of us fans are getting screwed I have emailed both and they are blaming eachother for why Mainevent will not be showing it the fact of it is Main Event want to screen it to everyone but Setanta sports says they can only screen it to cable users.

Either way this sucks for boxing fans.

Don't panic mate, I'm sure one of the 14,000,000 chain faux Irish pubs around will carry it. As a starter, go to the Sentanta website and see what pubs are showing Euro football qualifiers, that will at least give you an idea of what pubs are 'sports-centric'(?) and chances are will put on the fight. As the date gets closer I reckon you'll be able to pick your venue. The healthy expat population out here will guarantee more than a few venues will be carrying it.

My guess is around 3 or 4 Sydney time... They are fighting at 3AM to accommodate the US so it will be live prime time there... Whenever we get big fights from the US they fight starts at around 1:30 or 2 here so add an extra hour for daylight saving and yeah thats it i suppose? I am not sure how big the under card is

Scruffy Murphys will probably be showing it. They get setenta and show a lot of fights.

Hopefully there will be another place showing it though, cos that pub is a shit hole.

Well I have found a pub in Sydney that will be televising the fight it is the Harp irish pub in Tempe (close to home) so they reckon it starts at around 8am and the manin event at midday but they wont open untill 9.00-9.30 but I will be there with my thirst awaiting the big one.

That joint sucks too, but at least your socks don't get drenched in urine when you head to the shitter over there.

Everyone I know only has cable, I think Satelite is only for rural areas or the far outer suburbs.
