How Spanish Language TV Is Saving Boxing In 2016

Viewing habits are changing for some fight fans

Let's face it - we like watching boxing. All kinds of boxing. Especially on the weekends. Unfortunately the powers that be are not giving we English speaking American fans much boxing this 2016. I know, I know, things are supposed to get better. Temporarily, at least. We'll see.

To the point - Spanish Language television has saved boxing for us fight fans this year. Want to watch boxing? Better hope there's some Spanish language stations on your cable lineup. Otherwise you may well find yourself out of options.

Make no mistake about it, UniMas, BeIn2, Fox Deportes and other outlets that broadcast in Spanish are pretty much the only reliable sources for boxing lately. Forget about English speaking American pay cable networks, American mainstream networks or American basic cable networks. They just ain't delivering.

So, let's give some credit to those networks most of us Americans who only speak English rarely watch. They're keeping the sport alive in a way our English speaking networks can't or simply won't. In other words, they're boxing friendly. And they've no doubt gotten themselves some new viewers,

Quite a feat when you step back and think about it.
