When it comes to boxing, don’t even think about overlooking Showtime as a premier network for the sport. While HBO Championship boxing might get all the love, Showtime has hosted plenty of historic moments and has aggressively gone after today’s stars.
The network has two separate broadcasts for boxing: Showtime Championship Boxing and ShoBox: The New Generation. While the biggest fights are usually Showtime-promoted pay-per-view events, you can catch Showtime Championship Boxing and ShoBox on their live channels.
Whether the card is on pay-per-view or live on television, you can always bet on Showtime boxing odds with a major online sportsbook. If you’re looking for the latest odds, upset picks and betting guides, we’ve got daily articles from boxing experts ready to help you out.
These articles often feature boxing moneylines and odds from BookMaker.eu, a top-rated sportsbook at Gamblers Palace. Every major sportsbook updates their boxing odds daily, so you should definitely be keeping track of fight odds as soon as they open. You can keep checking back here for the latest news.

1986 - “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler defeats John “The Beast” Mugabi with a stunning 11th-round knockout on the debut broadcast of Showtime Championship Boxing.
1995 - Nigel Benn defended his WBC super middleweight belt against Gerald McClellan via 10th round TKO. McClellan spent two months in a coma after the fight, with massive brain injuries. Benn suffered a broken nose and jaw and minor brain injuries of his own. The fight is still regarded as one of the most savage in the sport’s history.
2005 - Diego Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo put on the consensus Fight of the Year in a WBC lightweight title match. In a rousing, back-and-forth affair, Corrales finally knocks out Castillo in the 10th.
2007-2008 - Israel Vazquez and Rafael Marquez fight four times in two years. And every fight manages to be awesome. In the first fight, Marquez wins when Vazquez cannot continue after Round 7. The next time around, Vazquez knocks out Marquez in the sixth round. The second scrap is named Fight of the Year and has the Round of the Year per Ring Magazine.
They then put on an even better fight in March 2008. Vazquez barely squeaks by with a split decision, mainly because he knocks Marquez down in the final frame. Of course they win yet another Fight of the Year in 2008. In the fourth and final fight, Marquez exacts revenge with a third-round TKO.
Ruslan Provodnikov - 25-4, 18 KOs
Provodnikov has enjoyed an extended stay near the top of the rankings, fighting some of the sport’s best fighters in Timothy Bradley, Chris Algieri and Mike Alvarado. In 2013, he was awarded Fight of the Year by the BWAA for his wild scrap with Bradley.
Keith Thurman Jr. 27-0, 22 KOs
Thurman is a welterweight champion, ranked number one in the world and fifth-best pound-for-pound fighter as recently as June 2016. Though he’s known for his power, many have come to respect his slick technical skills as well.
Jermell Charlo - 23-0, 18 KOs, Jermall Charlo - 27-0, 12 KOs
The Charlo twins are chasing history as the first twins to hold titles in the same division. They’ll probably never end up fighting each other, but if they keep their undefeated records intact, the calls for a twin vs. twin bout would be undeniably loud -- and justified.
Deontay Wilder - 35-0, 34 KOs
Anytime you have an undefeated heavyweight with 34 KOs in 35 fights, people are going to take notice. Wilder is a former Olympic bronze medalist and the current WBC champion, and his straight right hand might as well be registered as a deadly weapon. With a nearly 100% knockout ratio, Wilder is a fighter to watch.
