Starting today, MSG Networks will launch “Fight Week,” a full week of boxing programming featuring some of the most classic fights from over the last 35+ years.
As part of its week-long boxing coverage, MSG Networks will also air both episodes from the new DAZN two-part, all-access series, “40 Days,” which will take viewers behind-the-scenes of Canelo Alvarez’ training for his upcoming fight with Daniel Jacobs on May 4th.
During each episode, boxing fans will get an inside look into the fight prep and personal lives of both Canelo and Jacobs leading into their highly anticipated bout this weekend. Throughout the week, fans will also get to watch Canelo’s most recent fight and first-ever in New York, in which he defeated Rocky Fielding by a third-round knockout at Madison Square Garden in December.
