Just wondering if there is anybody in the UK who watches boxing Monday nights (10.30 to 11.30) on BEN (channel 184).

They usually broadcast from the Orleans in California, (fairly recent) and show a lot of Mexican fighters who have some cracking fights.

Last night's was especially good.

When i first seen it in the tv listings i cudnt wait to see the program. But it doesnt show any of the big names in boxing. I suppose wat can u expect when it is on BEN.

Dilivio you don't need two big names for a cracking fight (Hopkins v Eastman)Mexican Heart fighters always put on a good show. Their hunger and determination will outshine Money and protection fights anyday.

i totally agree but i prefer to watch fights which i know who the fighters are.

they never advertise their fights so I don't know when to watch them? The fights themselves are pretty good though but the guys are not top level fighters.

They have some promising looking youngsters on sometimes. This week they had a fight involving Francisco Leal (3rd fight) at featherweight, and he looked pretty good.
