CHANNEL 5
For those not wishing to pay the extra cash, there is free-to-air boxing on Channel 5 on Saturday night. Coverage of the clash for the vacant British light-heavyweight title between Shakan Pitters and Chad Sugden begins at 10pm.

NETFLIX
Mary Kom is a 2014 film that tells the inspirational story of former Indian amateur boxer, “Magnificent” Mary Kom.
