As a kid in Philippines, mostly read it in newspaper and watch a couple of fights on tv by staying up late at night to watch Rolando Navarete.

Moved here in the US, have a few relatives who got the PPVs for Mike Tyson but get to see only 1 fight. As a kid, didn't have much money, so i buy the Ring mag at least once a year. Watched boxing at KCAL 9 here in Los Angeles. One of the best i have seen was Chiquita Gonzales vs Humberto Carbajal. CBS channel 2 used to show a preview of the fight, specially with Terry Norris. I know a couple of Filipinos who gets Philippine sports magazine sent to them here in the US and get to read about Morris East and Luisito Espinosa.

Joined the US Marines, so didn't follow much of boxing or any other sports. After finishing my contract, read about Pacquiao when he was still unknown here in the US in the Fil-Am newspapers. Read also Gerry Penalosa. I buy Ring mag also but not too often.

Now of course, we follow boxing not only thru mags, newspaper, or cable but thru internet.
Ring magazine
