If you are a fan of boxing, you don't want to miss the big fights that regularly air on television. Sometimes, though, you may not have access to a television. If this is the case, there is no need to worry, because there are various ways that boxing enthusiasts can watch the match on their computer. If you are traveling, you can watch the fight as long as you have access to a laptop computer with Wi-Fi capability.
Things You'll Need

- Credit card
Sign up for a membership at a website that broadcasts boxing matches. Watchboxing.net is one of the many websites that will stream boxing fights live and has boxing videos that you can watch. Another website is ESPN3.com, which is a broadband network that offers live sports online. It airs live matches and archives them so viewers can watch them later.
