Tribute to the Kings is underway and proving to be an historic pay-per-view event starring father and son boxing icons Julio Cesar Chavez Sr and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, plus UFC legend Anderson Silva. Tonight's full fight is an exclusive Fite.TV PPV at $39.99 in the US – or just $14.99 in the UK. Read our handy guide and find out how to watch a Chavez Jr vs Silva live stream from anywhere in the world.
The much-hyped Tribute to the Kings event will feature 12 bouts, the first seven of which will be streamed live on globalsportsstreaming.com. The main card is an exclusive Fite.TV PPV starting at 9pm EST / 6pm PST.
The headline fight will feature former middleweight world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr against former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva in a 10-round cruiserweight bout. The MMA legend is considered by some to be UFC's 'Greatest Of All Time' but his final MMA appearance was underwhelming and he hasn't stepped foot in a boxing ring since 2005.
"When I look back at my journey, I see that nothing has been in vain," said Former UFC middleweight champion Silva. "I am extremely happy for the opportunity to test my boxing skills with Julio César Chávez Jr. I train continuously, always am striving for resilience and to overcome obstacles. Fighting is my everlasting breath."
Before that, 58-year-old boxing legend Julio Cesar Chavez Sr will make his last ever ring appearance when he battles Hector "Little Macho" Camacho Jr in an exhibition bout. Camancho Jr is son of Hector "Macho" Camancho Sr, who was defeated by unanimous decision in the legendary Chavez vs Camacho WBO light welterweight title fight back in September 1992.
The main card also features Omar Chavez, who fights Ramon Alvarez in their trilogy bout. Don't miss this one – it looks to be a spectacular PPV put together by Borizteca Boxing and Tosacano Promotions.

Watch a Chavez Jr vs Silva live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Chavez Jr vs Silva live stream rights holders, you may find yourself geo-blocked if you're away from your own country. If that's the case use a VPN to make sure you can access the stream.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN.
