    No. They do show some of the fights on HD-HBO but they are all upconverts. However, HD-Net does show some fights in true High-Def.

    I wish they were!!! I'm a huge boxing fan.
    It is better to watch the fights upconverted on the HD channels then watching the standard channels on my Dish 6000, but it would be great to see them in High-Definition widescreen, wouldn't it?[​IMG]
