Saturday’s big Gennady Golovkin-Osumanu Adama WBA/IBO world middleweight championship fight in Monte Carlo will be shown in over 100 countries, it was announced Friday by the promoters of Monte Carlo Boxing Bonanza.

Boxing fans in Australia, Austria, the Baltic States, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France/Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Kazakhstan, Latin America, the Middle East, Poland, Russia, Scandinavia, Slovakia, South Africa, Switzerland, Spain, Ukraine and the United Kingdom, can all see the fight, but unless something changes very quickly, American fight fans will be left out in the cold.

HBO, the network that has Golovkin under contract, opted to show another replay of “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” rather than pick up the live international feed of Golovkin-Adama.

Considering that Golovkin’s most recent fight against Curtis Stevens was HBO’s third highest rated boxing match for 2013 averaging 1.4 million viewers, it’s hard to fathom why the network would reject this chance to showcase one of its biggest stars.
