So, it's the battle of the Joes. Former world champ Joseph Parker beat Derek Chisora last December with a unanimous points victory. The 30-year-old Kiwi trains with Tyson Fury and is a regular at Fury's gym in Morecambe.
"Tyson said to me the other day: 'Show everyone why I have been backing you for years. Show everyone what you can do in the ring and the reason why I’ve been supporting you all this time'," Parker told 1News. "Because every time I had big fights against [Anthony] Joshua or [Dillian] Whyte, he’s always backed me."
Opponent Joe "Juggernaut" Joyce has yet to put a foot wrong since turning pro in 2017 at the age of 31. He's held British, Commonwealth, WBC Silver, and WBO International heavyweight titles, leaving him just one victory away from a world title shot. The winner of Saturday's clash will become the mandatory challenger for the WBO title currently held by Oleksandr Usyk.
Saturday's big fight is available in the US on ESPN+ for just $9.99 (as part of a regular monthly subscription). Make sure you know how to watch a Parker vs Joyce live stream from where you are.

Watch an Parker vs Joyce live stream from abroad with a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Parker vs Joyce 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).
