The preliminaries are well underway tonight with the Stevenson vs Nakathila main event fast approaching. Shakur 'Fearless' Stevenson fights Jeremiah "Low Key" Nakathila for the interim WBO super featherweight title at the Virgin Hotel in Las Vegas in a blockbuster 12-round bout. Can 23-year-old Shakur Stevenson produce another boxing masterclass and bust into the big time? Follow our guide on how to watch a Stevenson vs Nakathila live stream, from anywhere in the world.
Top Rank promotions has put together another unmissable bill of live boxing but all eyes will be on Shakur Stevenson vs Jeremiah Nakathila.
Stevenson (15-0) is undefeated thanks to a unanimous decision win over Toka Khan Clary in December, so a win over Nakathila would make the American southpaw a two-weight world champion. More importantly, it could put him one step closer to a big-money bout against WBC junior lightweight champ Oscar Valdez.
"I just feel like, when I’m at my best, it doesn’t matter who the opponent is," said Stevenson at this week's weigh in. "It’s been like that my whole career since I’ve been an amateur. You don’t know who you’re going to fight in the amateurs. You come up, and you just gotta fight people."
Jeremiah Nakathila (21-1) is the underdog according to the sports books but could the Namibian boxer upset the odds on his US debut? Stranger things have happened and Nakathila has won 10 straight fights – by knockout – since the only loss of his career.

Watch a Stevenson vs Nakathila live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Stevenson vs Nakathila 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.
