ESPN Boxing Broadcasts

Anybody caught any of the ESPN Saturday night boxing broadcasts? As someone who has enjoyed boxing over the years, it's nice to see some decent cards and not have to pay for a pay per view. The fights have been decent. The only downside is that ESPN seems to pick their "golden boy" for the fight and blow him up your keester for a week until the end of the fight, like a bunch of cheerleaders. Otherwise, it's nice to see decent boxing and not have to pay extra for it, though some of the upcoming fights are on EPSN+.

Sure was. They sure are in love with Lomachenko. I think the play by play guy wanted to make babies with him.

That's pretty much the "M.O" for ESPN in any sport.

ESPN's currently trying to promote individual athletes in hopes things with their career pan out and they can move said athlete's content to their paid channel. It's not about the story anymore, it's about the dollar.

My problem with ESPN+ is that I already over $9 a month in a cable subscription for their channels. Its part of every package and I can't block it. In order to view the additional content I'll have to pay another $4.99 bringing my total to over $15 a month. If I were to cut all the other channels I could watch everything on ESPN for $4.99 via streaming.

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out for them.
