Ironically just as brother Oceolo & myself were complaining about the constant replays of ESPN Classic Boxing, they are putting on some new fights within the next few days. ESPN2 is replaying their pay-per-view show from April at 9:30pm to 12AM. One warning though, this time conflicts with the Kostya Tsyzu-Ricky Hatton fight on Showtime. They are also showing
Muhammed Ali vs. Chuck Wepner (this is the fight that Sly Stallon based the Rocky series on) 6pm to 7:30pm. In addition to this, ESPN Classics is slated to show the following over the next week:

Saturday June 4th:

Sonny Liston vs. Eddie Machen (this is an opportunity to watch a prime Liston before he won the title from Floyd Patterson) 3pm to 4pm

Monday June 6:

Heavyweight Title Fights of the early 1960s (this concentrates on the reign of Floyd Patterson) 6pm to 7pm

Tuesday June 7:

Heavyweight Title Fights of the mid-1960s (this concentrates on the reign of Liston, and the rise of Ali) 6pm to 7pm

Wednesday June 8:

Matthew Saad Muhammad vs. Vonzell Johson (this is the fight where legendary all-out action fighter Saad Muhammad won the WBC Lt. Heavyweight Title) 9pm to 10pm

Thursday June 9:

Ezzard Charles vs. Rex Layne III (an opportunity to see the former heavyweight champ, who is also considered by many as the greatest Lt. Heavyweight who ever lived).
