THE DEFINITIVE BOXING PROGRAMMING LIST - on UK TV

1316 Views 20 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  w;dkm ckeqfjq c
Let me begin by saying that this thread is in no way intended to take the shine of Wallet's legendary "Boxing On UK TV Thread". This is more an expanded version of his idea... as I've noticed that he seems to list only the LIVE Events of his fave and preferred channels (and sometimes we don't see updates for a couple weeks at a time!). So, what I have done here is list a full weekly rundown of all boxing programming on UK TV across all channels without personal preference, hate or prejudice! because there is so much boxing stuff on TV which may be going unseen by users of CHB because you are not aware something is being shown. I'll try to keep this up to date from week to week incorporating wallet's efforts into this list.

So, with this in mind - Let's get the ball rolling...
