How to live stream the Anthony Joshua fight from anywhere on Earth

It's time for Joshua vs Povetkin! And we can tell you how to watch every minute – no matter where you are

joshua vs povetkin live stream

This is it - time for Anthony Joshua to go again. It's already been an eventful night of boxing, but the main event is moments away. AJ is looking for a 22nd consecutive career victory and another step on the road to legendary status. It's Anthony Joshua vs Alexander Povetkin, it's almost here and you can live stream the whole fight regardless of where you are in the world this weekend.

There seems little doubt among boxing experts that AJ is destined for greatness. Still at only 28 years of age and with a record of 21-0-0, you can't argue with the potential. And beating Wladimir Klitschko a couple of years ago proves that he can hang with the greats. But the next couple of years appear to be crucial, as he begins putting his three world championship belts on the line against more reputable opposition – the likes of Deontay Wilder waiting in the wings.

And that starts tonight with the experienced Russian fighter Alexander Povetkin. Povetkin is a former WBA heavyweight champ himself with only one blemish on his 35-fight record (a defeat to the aforementioned Klitschko). He's more than a mere wily old pro, as evidenced by his 24 career victories by KO.

The Joshua vs Povetkin bout is due to commence at around 10pm BST at Wembley Stadium tonight and our live stream guide will tell you how you can watch it. Thanks to a VPN that's even if you're away in a country that isn't showing it. And if you're in the US or Canada, you can even watch for FREE on the DAZN streaming service (opens in new tab)!

If the country where you live either isn't showing the fight or you want to catch the UK PPV coverage on Sky Box Office, then there's a simple way to get hold of a live stream. The trick is to download and install a VPN (opens in new tab), which then allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location. 

VPN services also give you an extra layer of security, by encrypting your online presence. We certainly don't condone it, but that's worth knowing if you decide to try and find a dodgy stream of the match. We've tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend ExpressVPN as the best option currently available:

ExpressVPN (comes with a 30 day money back guarantee) (opens in new tab) and is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

Once it's been downloaded and installed, open the app and select a server location (it's super easy) of a country that is showing the fight as listed below.

How to watch the Joshua fight in the UK

It's a familiar story for fight fans in the UK, as this will be a Sky Sports Box Office (opens in new tab) PPV. The price of this one is £19.95 – which is usual kind of price bracket for boxing on Box Office - and live coverage from Wembley starts at 6pm for the undercard. The main event is currently expected to start at around 10pm.

If you find yourself outside the UK this weekend but still want to grab that Sky stream, you'll find that access is blocked due to geo restrictions. The way to get around this is by downloading and installing a VPN (opens in new tab) as described above.
