BoxingHow to watch

Watch boxing matches on Sling TV

Sling TV is our top choice if you want a cable replacement. With Sling Orange, you’ll get ESPN, ESPN2, and a bunch of other channels, and if that’s not enough, you can upgrade to Sling Orange + Blue. What makes Sling TV so good for boxing is the fact that you can buy PPV events, which is not possible with other streaming services. You can also add Showtime, which is a must-have for some of this year’s top title matches.

Watch boxing matches on ESPN+

ESPN+ is home to a huge number of free and PPV boxing matches, and is a must-have for any boxing fan who wants to cut cable. It’s very affordable, too. PPV events cost extra, of course, but that’s still not a bad price, especially considering all the on-demand and other content you get. It’s also the home of the UFC, so MMA fans who also love boxing will get the whole package.

Watch boxing matches on DAZN

DAZN is another top streaming service if you want to watch boxing matches live without cable. It also broadcasts a lot of MMA, so it’s a good option in general for fighting sports enthusiasts, similarly to ESPN+. It’s a bit more expensive, though. However, there are no extra fees for PPV fights. They’re all included in your subscription, which is nice.

Watch boxing matches on FITE TV

FITE TV is similar to ESPN+ and DAZN, but it’s pretty much exclusively focused on combat sports, with some automotive sports sprinkled in for good measure. While it doesn’t have as many fights as its competitors, it still hosts more than 1,000 competitions every year. Its basic subscription costs $7.99/monthly or $69.99/yearly, though there are some PPV matches and additional upgrades available.

You can only watch FITE TV on one device at a time, but that’s not a problem if you’re not sharing your account. It also has a DVR, which ESPN+ and DAZN lack, so you can save events for later viewing. Device support includes iOS and Android, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, web browsers, and quite a few more devices. It also offers a free 7-day trial, so check it out and see if you like it.
