WBO/IBF junior lightweight world champion and 2016 Olympian Mikaela Mayer has just signed a huge deal with Top Rank and looks to be going places fast. She's topped longtime champ Ewa Brodnicka to capture the WBO junior lightweight world title and is now ranked No. 5 on the ESPN pound-for-pound rankings.

"Mikaela has accomplished so much since making her professional debut in 2017, and she has only scratched the surface," said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum. "I believe she is well on her way to becoming boxing’s pound-for-pound queen".

Watch a Mayer vs Han live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Mayer vs Han 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 (opens in new tab).
