Those who might have missed Saturday night's hotly-debated and extremely controversial fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley can catch the replay this Saturday night on HBO at 10 p.m. EDT, right before the live fight from El Paso between WBC middleweight titlist Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and Andy Lee.

This may be the most controversial outcome in years, at least relative to the scale of the fight and how many boxing fans in the world tuned in and how big of an event it was. There have been worse robberies, but few fights on this level have seen this much disagreement from the boxing fan base.

If you miss the replay on Saturday night, you can catch it on HBO on June 17 (9:45 a.m. EDT) or June 18 (11 p.m. EDT), or on HBO2 on June 17 (4:45 p.m. EDT) or June 19 (Midnight EDT).

We'll have more on Chavez vs Lee in the coming days, of course, plus live round-by-round coverage on Saturday night.

Those hoping to see both that show and the NBC Sports show headlined by Tomasz Adamek vs Eddie Chambers should make out fine -- the NBC show starts at 9 p.m. EDT with two fights (Bryant Jennings vs Steve Collins is the co-feature), and it will be about 11 p.m. by the time Chavez and Lee are actually getting in the ring and all that.

There shouldn't be a problem with overlapping. So we will be able to have round-by-round coverage of both shows that night, though if Adamek-Chambers is for some reason still going when Chavez-Lee starts, the HBO fight will be the priority.
