So which way will the Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder match-up go? With the self-proclaimed 'King of the Gypsies' in the boxing ring, predicting a result is virtually impossible. Fortunately, explaining how to live stream Wilder vs Fury is a much easier task – keep reading to discover how to watch tonight's big fight, no matter where you are in the world this weekend.
It's now three years and three days since Tyson Fury enjoyed his career defining night – THAT title win against Wladimir Klitschko. Let's be honest – nobody saw it coming, and the underdog Fury will be hoping to cause another upset in LA tonight.
Since the Klitschko victory, times have been tough for Fury. His battles have largely been fought outside the ring against fluctuating weight, mental health problems and the boxing authorities. Back in the gloves, his return has seen comfortable wins over Francesco Pianeta and Sefer Seferi. Deontay Wilder will be a whole different story.
The 6ft 7in Bronze Bomber has had a stellar career that shows no signs of slowing down. He has a perfect record over his 40 career fights, complete with 39 knockouts. The WBC heavyweight champion is probably best known in the UK for stopping Audley Harrison in the first round, but he's taken on – and beaten – all comers, and if Fury wanted a challenge he's certainly found it here.
The fight is set to start at around 6pm local time at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, USA. That means you'll need to be up at around 2am if you want to live stream Fury vs Wilder. If you're wondering about your watching option, then you're in the right place. And thanks to a VPN, you can even watch the action if you're away in a country that isn't showing the boxing.
Live stream Fury vs Wilder from anywhere with a VPN
Watch boxing with a VPN
If the country where you live either isn't showing the fight or you want to catch the UK PPV coverage on BT Box Office from outside the UK, then there's a simple way to get hold of a live stream. The trick is to download and install a VPN, 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) 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
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 Fury fight in the UK
The first fight that played out in the UK where Fury vs Wilder is concerned was between BT and Sky. The former eventually landed a knock-out blow and so the big fight will be shown on BT Box Office PPV.
The price of this one is £19.95 – which is usual kind of price bracket for boxing - and live coverage from LA starts at 11.30pm for the undercard. The main event is currently expected to start at around 2am Sunday morning.
If you find yourself outside the UK this weekend but still want to grab that BT Box Office 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 as described above.
