If you want to watch boxing online, you have many streaming options out there, some free, some paid. The trouble is that even if you get a subscription at one streaming service, it’s not a guarantee that you’re actually going to be able to watch all the fights you want to. In fact, that’s almost never the case.
One solution is to sign up to as many services as possible. Unfortunately, this can be pretty expensive. The other solution is to look for free streams ahead of each fight you’re interested in. If you’re wondering where to look for full fight streams with no charge, the answer is Reddit.
/r/BoxingStreams No More!
In 2018, the subreddit /r/BoxingStreams was among the most popular ones, especially in the sports category. It even ended up discussed in r/TrendingReddits, which focuses on the subreddits with growing popularity. According to the data provided by the community, /r/BoxingStreams was getting more than 2,100 new subscribers a day.
The reason behind this subreddit’s popularity was that it featured links to a large number of boxing events, including not only big professional bouts but amateur fights as well. No links were broken and some of them enabled the users to stream the fights in HD. Practically, the subreddit was your gateway to best boxing streams on the internet.
However, all good things must come to an end. The /r/BoxingStreams subreddit got suspended due to copyright infringement, leaving thousands of boxing fans craving for quality fight streams. Streaming the fight is no longer as easy as before, but with a little bit of effort, you can find some amazing streams on Reddit boxing.
Browsing Reddit Boxing Threads
Your best shot of finding good boxing streams on Reddit is to join the r/Boxing community. All you got to do is look for threads there that discuss boxing streams. For example, you can check out the Fight Streams thread, which has been around for a relatively long time.
The thread was created in 2014 and is still up, meaning that all the links available there are 100% legit. This is where you can find some links to free streams for undercard fights, as well as some paid streams for main card bouts. Most are the streams in question are HD.
The fact that it’s been up for over six years also means that some of the links in the Fight Streams thread are not working anymore. The good news is that most of them actually work, at least at the time of writing.
To spare you the trouble of testing out each one of them, here is the list of all the working streaming services mentioned in the thread:
- ESPN+ ($5.99 monthly or $49.99 per year for the US and Canada)
- ESPN Player (€11.99 monthly or €79.99 per year for European users)
- TopRank.TV (free undercards streams, $59.99 for main card streams)
- First Row* (all streams are free but full of annoying ads)
*We do not condone free streaming through illegal channels and are only representing what is shown on Reddit.
All this sounds good, but once again, it’s not perfect. If you are looking for 100% free HD streams of main card fights, you will have to dig deeper. Threads on Reddit that discuss boxing streams come and go, the reason being that they often contain links that infringe copyright laws. One of the best examples of this is the /r/BoxingStreams subreddit.
Finding the Perfect Boxing Live Stream (Reddit)
Most boxing fans look for streams on Google, tying in such search teams as “boxing live stream” and similar. The problem is that most search results will take you to sites that do not give you what you need. You probably aren’t going to get actual links to Reddit threads with boxing streams. Therefore, you better skip those sites.
Instead, you should focus only on those results that are actually from Reddit. Or, why not go with a simpler solution? Why not cut the middleman, which, in this case, is Google? Instead, simply go to Reddit and use its search feature to look for boxing streams.
