    The new season starts here tomorrow stateside. So if I'm not mistaken you get the fights there sometime in the middle of next week.

    Dyah Davis vs. Alfonso Lopez is the headline fight.

    Not sure which of the other cards they're going to show, probably either
    Steve Martinez vs. Denis Doughlin
    or
    Dannie Williams vs. Fernando Trejo
    or maybe both.

    I'm at work I can't check my tv.

    Now it's just FNF, and maybe a little snippet on their news shows. They used to have Wednesday Night Fights, and I think a long time ago Monday Night Fights as well. I loved WNF, but the viewership just wasn't there. On a super rare occasion they will have a special event on a Saturday, but that's only once every few years or so. In the states there are a bunch of ESPN channels, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, ESPNU (college sports), ESPN Classic (Replays of big events from the past) and ESPN3 (Web based streams of tons of sports available in the US only). ESPN Classic plays a lot of Tyson's fights and other big name guys like RJJ from back in the day.

    ESPN Classic is good to watch the first time I saw them including Ali v Liston, Fraizer and Foreman but seen all of them and they just keep repeating them over and over. I have not seen any repeat of Roy Jones, now that would be classic.

    BTW the boxing is on ESPN America.
