You can use the following undocumented command in this case:

DBCC log ( {dbid|dbname}, [, type={0|1|2|3|4}] )



   Dbid or dbname - Enter either the dbid or the name of the database
                    in question.

      type - is the type of output:

      0 - minimum information (operation, context, transaction id)

      1 - more information (plus flags, tags, row length)

      2 - very detailed information (plus object name, index name,
          page id, slot id)

      3 - full information about each operation

      4 - full information about each operation plus hexadecimal dump
          of the current transaction log's row.

by default type = 0
