There are a lot of fights that can be hard to find on YouTube or daily motion etc. but exist on more obscure sites. Thought it might be a good idea for anybody who stumbles on a difficult to find fight to have a place to share a link. Or a request for a hard to locate fight.
I know some people are having trouble finding Rafael Marquez vs Israel Vazquez I
So here is a link it exists if you dig a little bit
This is a great idea. People should post both obscure sites, but also fight requests. I believe Boxing Scene has something similar in those forums, but they are generally more toxic than I'd like to pilfer through, lol
Boxing Scene is good overall in my opinion, but there is some bad stuff on it, a few people that feel the need to start threads on topics that are completely unrelated to boxing and for nobody's benefit, overall, good site in my opinion.
I like it overall, too. I just find weird threads sometimes, filled with crazy racist rants, weird overly macho sexism, etc. I like it very much overall, for sure, but digging through the threads sometimes can get depressing, lol. Boxrec has a decent forum. WIsh they hosted more fight sharing on there. I think I'm going to download every fight I can, and store them, in the event they disappear at anytime, in the hopes of being able to share with others.
I know, some of it is ridiculous, one guy was bragging about beating up a homeless person. Best off just using Boxing Scene for news rather than discussion, that's what I do, I don't have an account, just use it for news.
Floyd vs. Canelo with Showtime commentary is extremely hard to find. Boxingscene is good to use for it. For recent fights, there are some good sites that host them. http://boxingfights.ucoz.com/ has been reliable recently.
I prefer https://www.boxingforum24.com/ but it is generally the guys I know best pm’ing back and forth rather than threads on these hard to find fights...although due to a request a hard to find Ismael Laguna fight got posted on YouTube
Anyone know where I can find Lara vs Castano or Wilder vs Fury?
Lara vs Castano if you don’t mind Spanish commentary
It doesn't matter some fights I don't even listen to commentary as long as the fight Is of good quality I'll watch, thanks.
When I am scoring I prefer the Spanish or Asian broadcasts if I can find them. If it is English I mute it when I watch. Commentary is so biased in many cases and even though seasoned boxing fans don’t think it influences them...:it does! Some good articles out there on commentary swaying fan opinions on fights.
Honestly I think it does. I feel like it's the same if you check twitter during the fight, and it can sway your opinion. I remember watching Ward Kovalev 1 live, and during the whole fight everyone was saying Kovalev was winning and won, I remember thinking that I felt I did a good job scoring and couldn't see a win for Kovalev. I was honestly shocked to see that so many people thought Ward was "gifted" a decision. Same for GGG Jacobs I remember people on twitter were saying that Jacobs won and I had GGG up by one point at the end. I thought I scored it wrong but after watching a second time I had the same score. Also do you know where I can find Porter vs Garcia anywhere?
Porter vs Garcia
I will hav to see if I can dig my cards up....going through a stack of new rebooks with fights I have scored lol. But I think I also had Ward and GGG winning those 2 fights.
Do you do the scoring by hand or do you use an app?
By hand and make notes. 1 dot for a close round 2 dots for ultra close rounds where others will score different. That way I can go back and see,...8 rds very close will make a wide variance in judges cards or ours. What app do you use? And I put the Garcia fight link up there
It's called judgepad. It has a thing where you click for rounds you think are close and you can take notes on it. I did see you posted it I just haven't been able to get around it I've been busy.
Good thread. I haven’t been able to locate the recent Lee Selby vs Omar Douglas fight, with English commentary. Props to anyone who can find a copy.
Can somebody help me find crawford vs prescott? you know why i wanna watch that lmao
https://youtu.be/bE_25M3eKYQ Watch it before they pull it
Thanks bro! Appreciate it! Already downloaded it to my computer lol so I already have it forever :)
A couple I’ve been looking for.
Matthysse vs Kiram
Linares vs Gesta
Carlos De Leon vs Jose Flores Burlon
Both the Matthysse and Linares fights:
Nice. Thanks bro.
Can someone add Charles Martin Vs. Glazkov?
??? Not hard to find? The first one that pops up on a google or YouTube search??
Alfredo Escalera vs Ronnie McGarvey
Whewwww....older fights are harder to find...less footage floating around. I will dig a little tomorrow if no one else unearths it....but this might be hard to find?
I know, I’ve dug through a lot of my normal channels, and have struck out. Figured it’d be somewhere, considering it was on a Foreman card(if I remember correctly), but I could be SOL.
I put a feeler out in another classic boxing forum to see if anyone knows or has footage or if they know of a link....but I wouldn’t get my hopes up. I will dig some tomorrow but 70’s and earlier are hit and muss
Yoann Kongolo vs Andrejs Pokumeiko
Just aired today, but looking for Mthalane vs Kuroda. I know there was a free stream while it was live, and was aired on TVK in Japan. If anyone finds it, please post.
No luck just yet..found 1 false lead....I will see if anything turns up.
Thanks man. If it’s a world title fight, have to figure someone is recording and keeping it.
Tim Tszyu v Joel Camilleri Another recent fight, but looking for video if anyone happens to run into it.
The Boxwelt YouTube channel is a fantastic place, you can find all the entertaining German fight cards on there in HD (:
I also like Dailymotion they have all sorts of gems there.
Trinidad vs Reid
The video quality is not great but it's watchable
Matthysse vs Molina not on YouTube right now but found it here
I can’t find a full version of the first fight between Steve Cunningham & Yoan Pablo Hernandez. There’s a video on YouTube, but it’s missing rounds.
Where do I find Micky Ward vs Reggie Green? Can't find that one anywhere online and i only just found it after digging a little deeper on tcboxing. It has eluded me for quite some time.
Also I've compiled a list of fights that I gave 5 stars on here or just fights I really enjoyed watching or scoring. CLICK HERE to look at the list. Hope people enjoy the fights on there. Anyways, there are a few fights on here that I can't find online. If you guys know where I can find any of the non hyperlinked fights on some sort of video streaming platform, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it.
The fights missing (as of right now) are:
Jorge Paez vs Calvin Grove I
Kevin Kelley vs Troy Dorsey
Simon Brown vs Vincent Pettway
Lucas Matthysse vs. John Molina (I've seen this one online, just not in good quality)
Jessie Vargas vs Thomas Dulorme
Jermall Charlo vs Sergiy Derevyanchenko
Mario Barrios vs Ryan Karl (to be fair tho that one just happened)
I'm confused lol didn't you already score ones like Pettaway vs Brown
I did but i had to download it from tcboxing. Im trying to link all the fights on the list i made. Can't find it on youtube or dailymotion, so im hoping that its just on some other platform I didn't think to check.
Has anybody seen a copy of Horn Zerafa 2 by any chance?
Idk if this fight counts because so far its been impossible for me to find, but Byron Mitchell vs Manny Siaca I. It was on one of the Ruiz vs Holyfield undercards, and I have no idea where to find it.
Badou Jack vs George Groves (can't find anywhere)
Sven Ottke vs Robin Reid (youtube videos don't show the full fight)
I think this might be the entire Ottke vs Reid fight. I didnt watch it all the way through, but I checked and I did see 12 rounds.
No luck on finding Jack vs Groves tho
https://www.allthebestfights.com/badou-jack-vs-groves-full-fight-video-2... Has the full card, so just have to scroll until it starts
All the best fights.com usually has the ones I’m looking for
