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.





Let's look at the boxing line-up on Home Box Office




HBO has been serious about its boxing coverage since 1973, when it first set up HBO World Championship Boxing. The series has covered a plethora of major boxing events over the last thirty-nine years, including George Foreman beating Joe Frazier, a little event called the Rumble in the Jungle, the Thrilla in Manilla, and everything in between all the way up to Floyd Mayweather's win over Oscar de la Hoya. Some people dislike HBO's coverage, and some support their rivals like ESPN, but for me, one thing is clear; HBO is one of the homes of boxing.


With that in mind, I have gathered the HBO schedule for upcoming 2012 fights. We already have a fixture list here on Punchbag Blog, but it would be nice to know where you can actually watch the fights. British fans, you will still have to rely on Sky Sports, ESPN and Boxnation. For US fans, here is what to expect in 2012 in terms of boxing on HBO.

May 5th - Floyd Mayweather vs Miguel Cotto

May 19th - Lamont Peterson vs Amir Khan

June 9th - Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley

June 16th - Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Andy Lee

More dates should be added soon, and when they are, we'll post an update. For now, there are lots of fights to look forward to. Mayweather - Cotto is tonight, next week is Khan vs Peterson and the week after, we get to see Froch - Bute. May should just be declared worldwide boxing month.
