    To be fair US boxing is kinda dead these days. Sadly.

    PBC and Top Rank are on the FITE TV app at the moment.

    Yeah, I'm afraid the good old days are over regarding US boxing on UKTV. Top Rank and PBC on a PPV app and Golden Boy and Matchroom USA on Dazn app. It's a bit sh1t, isn't it ? In saying that, it goes like this. As long as I can remember, in the multi channel world, it's feast followed by famine. I think the next feast is a long time off in this environment though( the PPV buys on Fite Tv must be dire though ).

    The ITV PBC link up was odd really, they didn't give it a long enough chance to build an audience. I thought at the time it was the beginning of ITV stepping back into boxing but it looks now like they just picked up some fights when the rights were cheap.

    Although maybe they didn't get the ratings from those few nights to justify keeping it going?

    Mr Eubank Sr orchestrated that apparently.

    Fights at 3-4 o'clock in the morning are never going to get large enough audiences in Blighty to justify paying rights m8.

    i loved boxnation as well. ahead of the game, ironically by a dinosaur in warren. i also love the fitetv top rank subscription because they show the whole card for 4,99 a month and top rank put a lot of shows on. Not all of them good, but normally they have at least one good fight on the card
