After Anthony Joshua's super-fight with Tyson Fury collapsed, the unified heavyweight takes on top-ranked Ukrainian contender Oleksandr Usyk in front of a crowd of 60,000 in North London tonight.

Joshua will weighed in at 17st 2lbs (109kg), almost a stone heavier than Usyk, who is fighting in only his third heavyweight bout having previously become the undisputed cruiserweight champion.

Matchroom Sports promoter Eddie Hearn has tipped the fight to start with a bang, so make sure you get your Joshua vs Usyk live stream sorted early. It's a £25 pay-per-view in the UK, but much cheaper in other countries.

"Usyk is a southpaw, clever, technically very good. He’s smaller as a former cruiserweight champion but he handled Derek Chisora, who is physically tougher than Joshua," said Tyson Fury. "So while I’m absolutely confident of beating [Deontay] Wilder, I’m not so sure about AJ not losing his fight."

The packed undercard includes Campbell Hatton, son of Manchester's Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton, fighting Izan Dura. We'll also see Lawrence Okolie face Dilan Prasovic for Okolie's WBO cruiserweight belt.

Saturday's unmissable fight costs $2.99 on DAZN for those in Australia and some countries get a free trial. Here's how to find your Joshua vs Usyk live stream from anywhere in the world.

Joshua vs Usyk live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Joshua vs Usyk live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

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.


Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch Munguia vs Szeremeta on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the England vs India, you may wish to choose 'Canada' for DAZN Canada.

3. Then head over to DAZN on your browser or device and enjoy the UFC 266 live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a money-back guarantee with ExpressVPN.

    Hi guys
    Your method didn't work.
    Once I'd done all that, when it came to paying DAZN, they said "Looks like you're using a VPN. Please switch your VPN off and try again."
    You should maybe try out your plans before you recommend them. Thanks
    PS in the end, some bright spark posted the fight streamed on Twitter from DAZN Germany, so about 31000 people ended up watching the fight for free, no strings attached. It was probably illegal, but hey. Joshua. Uzyk.
