  1. I am so glad Epix is airing this fight. I was getting worried we wouldn’t
    be able to watch it. I work for DISH Network and switched my service over to them from Comcast, and I am so glad I did. I wouldn’t have been able to get the Epix channel. I think this is going to be a great fight to watch. Yay for me I get to watch it from my couch in HD.
