Earlier today we received an e-mail from the WBC and, unlike some e-mails they send, this one caught our eye. That's because it offered "Free Live Boxing", if there's one word we love it's "free".
The boxing on offer, much to our delight, will be Saturday's show from Mexico City and will feature the very interesting bout between Japan's Seiichi Okada (18-4, 11) and Mexico's Nery Saguilan (29-4-1, 10).
Although the WBC do get a lot of hate from fans and the boxing community in general we do need to applaud them for giving us free boxing streams that are international and viewable globally. These shows are, admittedly, not the best shows but they do usually have one or two notable fights on them, such as this show's main event.
Whilst we don't expect the WBA, WBO or IBF to follow suit it would be nice to see more people offer "free and legal" streams to us, the fans.
It's not often that we get to say this but thank you WBC.
For those interested in watching the show it will be televised on wbcboxing.tv
