Fight of the Week was a live American professional boxing series that aired on ABC-TV from 1960–1963. After NBC-TV's cancellation of The Gillette Cavalcade of Sports in the spring of 1960, ABC took over the prime time boxing program, although it was renamed Fight of the Week. Legendary boxing commentator Don Dunphy did the blow-by-blow description of the bouts, which took place on Saturday beginning in October 1960 through September 1963. From there, the series moved to Friday nights, where it continyed until ABC finally cancelled prime time boxing after the bout of September 11, 1964, permanently ending 18 years of regularly scheduled prime time boxing on U.S. broadcast network television. One reason for the downturn of televised boxing in the U.S. during the early 1960s may have happened on March 24, 1962, when Emile Griffith defeated Benny "The Kid" Paret for the Welterweight Championship at New York's Madison Square Garden. Paret was carried from the ring unconsciously, and on April 3 of that year, died as a result of his injuries that he had sustained in that bout. Occasionally, between September 1964 and the mid-1980s, there were a number of boxing events on broadcast television. Since then, however, boxing found a home with several pay-per-view specials, along with monthly, or semi-monthly scheduled bouts on premium channels such as HBO and Showtime, along with the long-running series USA Tuesday Night Fights on USA Network. Currently, the weekly cable bouts can be seen on ESPN2.
