You can add boxing to the list of sports that have received the 3D treatment.

ESPN 3D will broadcasting boxing for the first time in 3D on Feb. 18 with ESPN’s Friday Night Fights from Salisbury, Md.

Joe Tessitore and Teddy Atlas will call the action ringside. Tessitore is a 3D veteran as he called several college football games last season for ESPN, including the BCS National Championship game.

“Here’s hoping we get a spectacular, head-snapping, sweat-spraying, one punch knockout just a few feet away from an ESPN 3D camera!” said Tessitore.

As for the action in the ring, the card is headlined by two undefeated fighters in Fernando Guerrero and Shawn Porter.
