Heavyweight Boxing in NYC
Jumbotron in Times Square shows boxing championship live
Fans of the sweet science have been boxed out by MMA.
But Times Square is about to host an event that will remind New Yorkers that boxing is in our bars, our blood and our basements.
Witness an epic three-part heavyweight championship series broadcast live in HD (and closed-captioned) on a Times Square Jumbotron courtesy of EPIX.
The matchups feature six victory-hungry gladiators and begin with Vitali Klischko defending his World Boxing Council (WBC) title against top-10 contender Dereck Chisora at Olympiahalle in Munich, Germany.
Broadcast on ginormous dimensions — 24'4" x 37'7" — and full HD resolution, you'll catch every power-packed punch.
The remaining two battles — Alexander Povetkin vs. Marco Huck, and Wladimir Klitschko vs. Jean March Mormeck — will be broadcast on the same screen the following Saturdays, February 25 and March 3.
So mark your calendars, patrons of pugilism — because you've finally got something to look forward to.
Free; Broadway between 44th & 45th
