Just months ago Devin Haney became the first undisputed lightweight champion since 1990. And now, the American has to take on George Kambosos Jr a second time on home turf. Main event ring walks are expected to take place at 1.30pm, AEDT, 10.30 pm ET and 3.30 am BST (Sunday morning). The fight is PPV in Australia, but is part of a regular subscription on ESPN/ESPN+ and Sky Sports in the US and UK respectively – and there's even a way to stream for absolutely free. Here's how to watch a Haney vs Kambosos Jr 2 live stream from wherever you are.
Date: Saturday 15th October 2022
Venue: Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, Australia
Ring walks: 3.30pm AEDT (Sun) / 10.30pm ET / 3.30am BST (Sun)
FREE US stream: Hulu Live (7-day free trial) / ESPN cable

AUS stream: Kayo Sports (opens in new tab) (AU$59.95 pay-per-view)
This June, Haney proved more than a match for the then-defending champion, and this clause-invoked round two sees the undisputed champ cross the Pacific once more – this time to defend.
Could a surprise be on our hands? If The Dream manages to keep the Australian at bay with his superior reach, controlled jabs and punishing counters like last time, it seems unlikely. However, with the will of a home crowd behind Kambosos Jr, anything could happen.
If the media is to be believed, should Kambosos notch another loss in Melbourne it would be his last time setting foot into the ring as a professional. At 29 with an admirable record of 20-1 he's no journeyman, but claiming the undisputed title is likely to both cast a sheen on his name and keep him around for another few bouts.
The big fight (Sunday in Australia) is a AU$59.95 pay-per-view in Oz. US viewers can stream the action free with a 7-day trial of Hulu Live or watch on ESPN. In the UK, Sky Sports will be showing the fight, with subscription and PAYG options through Sky and Now. Make sure you know how to watch a Haney vs Kambosos Jr live stream from where you are.

What happened last time?
Coming into the first bout, George Kambosos Jr held the WBA (Super), IBF, IBO and Ring magazine lightweight world titles, after his David and Goliath defeat of Teofimo Lopez, who in turn had conquered the great Vasiliy Lomachenko in his previous fight.
Devin Haney, meanwhile, retained his WBC strap with a wide points victory last time out against Jojo Diaz. His lightning hand speed and slick movement came to the fore in beating three-time world champion Jorge Linares two fights before via unanimous decision for the best scalp on his record.
When it came to blows between the two at The Marvel Stadium, Melbourne, Haney quashed what few doubters he had left. Despite a typically more cautious approach than his 15 wins by KO might suggest, The Dream comfortably rode out the 12 rounds and secured an emphatic unanimous decision win.
However, despite a clear disparity of skill on the night, the fight contract demanded an immediate rematch in Australia should Kambosos lose – and tonight's bout is just that.
