I have all those, but they are great to watch over and over. I used to watch that channel before ESPN took over, it was even better without the tickler across the bottom.

I know espn bought Bill Cayton's vast collection of fights, too bad they don't show more rare classics from their collection. If you watch the channel for a year, you won't see any different classics the next year. Just the same ones.

Man I wish I still had that channel, that used to be my favorite when they'd do marathons of Louis, Robinson, Ali, Tyson....sucks not having cable.

Yea they do play a lot of the same fights over and over.
But it's nice to watch obviously.
I'll watch any boxing when it's on.
I hate how classic always plays poker and classic nascar....how is there classic nascar?

Agreed. To a certain extent I can understand not sharing all of the rare (and expensive) fights freely but surely it'd be a better idea than to lock up these great rare films behind closed doors and never give anyone a chance to see them.

Atleast Cayton/Jacobs sold rights to their films.

Not that I am implying anything illegal, but the best part of these marathons is that you can get some really high quality fights to fill out your collections.

How is it irrelevant? ESPN have numerous boxing films among their collection that most people probably haven't even heard of. Since they're not willing to share them, atleast for the moment, no one will get to see them. Not me, not you, not anybody.

It's possible to order ESPN America/Europe & Showtime Scandinavia.

Many HBO series are shown on Finnish TV but I'm not too sure if it can be ordered here. Not as far as I know.
