If you're looking to get in shape like a boxer or you're just looking for some boxing workouts to add to your own routine then you're at the right place. You can also find plenty of drills, techniques and tips to help you exercise like a champ.





This weeks poll was less about the boxers themselves and more concerned with how you get to watch them. We asked you to vote on which channel you think offers the best British boxing coverage. The choices were Sky Sports, Channel 5 and Boxnation.
Sky Sports are a mainstay of boxing, and now that they have abandoned pay per view their fights are accessible to regular subscribers. Some knock their programming, but they do tend to get the big fights, as proved with Amir Khan contracted to them and Froch-Bute coming up this weekend.

Channel 5 is the new kid on the block. They've only shown a few fights so far and they have a deal with promoter Mick Hennessey to show his boxers, so you will see the likes of Tyson Fury and Chris Eubank Jr fight on the channel but few others. They might not air Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather, but a free-to-view channel getting good ratings for showing a boxing match is absolutely a positive thing.

We move on then to the subscription channel Boxnation, who charge £10 a month and promise to show the best fights. Their biggest criticism so far is that the fight line-up has been weak, and that repeats are used to fill programming hours. Frank Warren and co have obviously taken that on board because the fight line-up has improved vastly this year, as seen with them showing Mayweather-Cotto early this month.

So, enough from me. Let's see which British channel you guys think is the best for boxing.

Sky Sports - 36%
Channel 5 - 22%
Boxnation - 42%


There you go, Boxnation wins by a decent margin. I knew it would be a toss-up between them and Sky, but it wasn't as close as I would expect. Channel 5 also did well, snagging a healthy 22% of the votes. Hopefully the Channel 5 team will see this and continue to grow their boxing coverage.
