See a VR live boxing match

Virtual Reality is set to be a really big thing, but even if you don't have a headset you can get into the thick of the action with 360 degree YouTube videos.

These special videos are captured with cameras which can see in all directions at once, allowing you to pan around and check out new angles whenever you want. Now, Showtime has posted the first ever boxing match shot with one of those cameras, giving you an idea of how immersive sporting events will be in the not so distant future.

Click below to get a ringside seat for a middleweight bout between Daniel Jacobs and Peter Quillin - remember you can just click and drag your mouse inside the video window to move the camera around. Or launch it on your phone to get your gyroscope involved.

It seems like this will be a pretty cool way to watch a boxing match, especially with a VR headset where you can look around and get a closer look at every punch and dodge.
