On this page, we've picked out what we think are the best pubs in the country to enjoy a big fight night in. Boxing is quite probably the perfect sporting endeavour to watch in a pub. The build-up, the visceral excitement of the fight, the numerous talking points before and after to be delved into at length. Pubs and boxing is a fine combination, which is why we at MatchPint are very much the friend of boxing fans. We help you find the very best pubs showing boxing on TV so you can enjoy every jab, hook and body blow armed with a drink and plenty of highly salted things to chew on. Below are a number of our favourite pubs to frequent when the boxing is on. If you are looking for the closest pub to see a particular fight, our list of all pubs showing boxing on TV might be useful, just click on a bout to activate the venue finder.
The funny thing about boxing is that most people believe they would be able to produce some sort of boxing prowess if needed. Ever practised in front of a mirror? Thought so. Well if there is anything to bring you back to earth it is watching some of the world's best in the ring. Boxing certainly creates a buzz around the pub. You have got the undercard to have in the background while you catch up with mates and then over the top build-up to the main event. The great thing about a big fight is even those around who are not big fans will be drawn into the excitement. Plenty of people who like boxing also love the UFC and, if you are one of them, head across the our page for the best pubs to watch UFC. Others are purists and, for that, we salute you.
