Accompaniments to a great night of boxing

To me there are 3 different boxing TV experiences:

1. The Boxing marathon
This is the domestic show followed by the American bill. You need to regulate your alcohol intake and have planned caffeine and sugar rushes. I usually start with a nice meal (curry/chinese with wine/beer then go on to the coffee once the English bill has finised

2. The Big Domestic bill
This is when you can binge on boxing food and booze without worrying about dozing off before the main event - a perfect night for example was the Rogan v Skelton card which was on the same night as the Degale debut. I had strong cider, salt & vineger peanuts after a large kebab. I watch a Sky card live with an ITV4 card mixed in with Sky+. great night

3. The breakfast show (Sky+ American bill)
This is more common now as I can no longer sit up through the night due to age, kids etc. I Sky+ the bill and then get up early on a Sunday morning and enjoy with fruit juice, my pint tea mug, cereal and bacon sarnies.

No.1 is rare these days, but however boxing still has the buzz it always has

depends really,if a couple of lads want to watch it,we watch british bill,get pissed,eat pizza/kebab, sometimes get the gloves out knock the shit out of each other in the back garden(although we are getting to old for this form of inbetween fight entertainment),then drink more beer,watch the undercard buzzing then all fall asleep as the main event comes out then wake up when they announce the fucking result,go home (unless you are watching at your house) and get bollocked of wife for waking her up banging about walking in to stuff.
but this is far and inbetween really,i usually record it and watch in the morning:yep while everybody is in bed ;)
