HELP US GET LEE V CHAVEZ ON TV
ANDY Lee will attempt to become the latest Champion of the World to hail from Ireland this weekend. The Limerick man challenges undefeated Mexican Julio Chavez Jnr for the WBC middleweight championship of the world in what is easily the biggest fight on the planet this weekend. The boxing world will certainly sit up, take note and consume the fight with great interests.
Unfortunately, however Irish fans, who could not afford a trip to El Paso won’t be able to even view what could turn out to be a historic night in Irish boxing.
No terrestrial TV station has taken up the fight as of yet and Irish fans could be denied the chance to watch Lee follow in the footsteps of Bernard Dunne, Wayne McCullough, Steve Collins and the like.
We here at Irish-boxing.com believe the event should be shown on this side of the Atlantic. We think you might be able to help. Comment below express your desire to see the fight. If we get enough numbers and responses we will send the story on to all UK and Irish tv stations. If they see there is an audience for the fight they might broadcast it.
