Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

It's going to be the most expensive Pay Per View event in history in the UK. I'm surprised Sky think they'll get the buys on this, of course it's the biggest fight in 20 odd years, however there's no Brits fighting plus it'll be on at about 4 o'clock in the morning. I can't see anyone other than the die hard boxing fans will be forking out for it. I guess they'll push it big in the coming weeks, I'll be interested to see the final viewing figures.

For the last few Mayweather fights I've recorded them off DMAX and then watched them "as live" the next morning. They've been pretty dull affairs so I've been glad that I've not stayed up for them. Will probably do the same for this fight, as although the event itself will be spectacular, I expect the fight to be disappointing.

Just wake up as normal on Sunday morning and you'll find it in glorious HD on all the usual torrent sites.
Put the coffee on, warm some croissants, let the cat out and then enjoy

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Most matches I watch on Boxnation iPad app, but seems they are not showing it due to Sky having the rights. Pity HBO isn't showing it in regular programming.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Balls. Sky have won the rights to screen the fight in Germany so it won't be on DMAX. Looks like I'll have to torrent it the next day whilst avoiding learning the result

Looks as if Sky Sports will win the bidding war to show the fight.

Sky Box Office (PPV) just won the rights to screen the fight in the UK. Still no news about who will be broadcasting in Europe, though I very much doubt it'll be PPV.

Old news.
Just because Sky won the rights in one country it doesn't mean they have them in another e.g. Klitschko vs. Haye, shown on Sky Box Office in the UK but on RTL in Germany.

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

How can I watch this fight? We have UPC Cablecom and none of their sport channels have coverage....

Is there a reliable online site where I can stream this even if it's for a fee?

Hello everyone!
For Zrh boxing fans, I read a suggestion to try out these Pubs, I already called them and the problem is not that they don't want to show it but that there is no news of any Swiss tv broadcasting it. Anyway, no harm in calling, eh?

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Was watching Sky in Germany over the weekend and they're really pushing this fight. €20 they want there and it'll be the first PPV event ever in Germany. Like I said already, I can't see them getting many buys in Germany at least as these two just aren't household names.

Couldn't agree more - I cannot see many Germans interested in a non-heavyweight fight without German participation. Only a fraction of a percent would shell out 20 EUR for that...

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather - How to watch

Good afternoon boxing fans, ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLEEEEE?

No dissrespect to anyone but i must say my oppinion.
I am a huge boxing fan for the last 15 years and i have watched all of the fights of both fighters. I think that Floyd is a way way more superior deffensive boxer than Manny and there is no way that Manny could win this one. Anyway i think that Money Matweather is chasing that rocky Marciano record 49 wins 0 loses which obligate him to have two more figts after Pacquiao. Maybe thay trying to prepare us for another great boxing triology,who knows.
Anyone thiks the same?

Yes, more or less that Floyd has the advantage and is favored. But there are good days and bad days for everybody, and such is the opportunity for underdogs. I particularly like Pacquiao's narrative over Floyd, and would like to see Floyd humbled. Any which way, Pacquiao has already succeeded in defeating the Goliath of his life story.

I'd hate for it to be a contrived "draw" just so they can milk more money from a later fight. I'm sure if it draws or Floyd loses, there will be a rematch.

I'd also like to see Justin Bieber lose, but that's just me.
