NEW YORK – Showtime Sports will live-stream the first ever boxing event on Twitter this Saturday, offering fans the opportunity to watch and join the conversation during the "Showtime Championship Boxing" tripleheader headlined by popular four-division world champion Adrien Broner versus upset-minded Adrian Granados. 

The unique collaboration with Twitter is an extension of the Showtime "Free Preview Weekend" during which the premium network will be available to more than 73 million television households nationwide from Friday, February 17 through Monday, February 20.

The Twitter stream was excellent on my computer. Stuttered on my smart TV for some reason though. But quite excellent on PC.
