Showtime has just announced that they’ll be hosting three separate boxing shows this Saturday, July 29, for a full evening of boxing action! In addition to the two-fight telecast headlined by Adrien Broner vs. Mikey Garcia, the network will also live stream a few other fights starting in the early evening.
Specifically, Showtime will be live streaming Carl Frampton’s fight against Andres Gutierrez in Ireland, starting at 5:30pm ET, and the coverage for that fight will be provided by Northern Ireland’s Channel 5 network.
Then, beginning at 7:15pm ET, Showtime will live stream a couple preliminary fights on the Broner-Garcia card. The two-fight stream will feature the heavyweight contest between Gerald Washington and Jarrell Miller, and also the U.S. debut of Ireland’s Olympic Gold Medalist Katie Taylor. Barry Tompkins and Daniel Jacobs will be on the call for that live stream.
All fights will can be streamed live on Showtime Sports’ Facebook Live and YouTube pages, but, unfortunately for some of you, there will apparently be some geo-blocking activity — with the live streams only available to U.S. audiences. There are obviously some fairly easy ways to get around that, but I’ll leave it up to you to figure that out with a simple Google search.
Showtime will also be live streaming the final Broner-Garcia press conference and weigh-in this Friday, accessible through the same digital platforms. We’ll try to have that available for you right here on BLH.
