Farmer vs Diaz Live Stream: How to watch the fight online wherever you are

If you’re a Sky customer you can stream the fight online via the Sky Go app.

Equally, in the US and other applicable regions, DAZN customers will be able to stream the fight on DAZN.

If you’re unsure whether you can access these streaming options in your region, a VPN may be the best workaround. That’s because access to normal coverage might be geo-blocked – that is, you are prevented from watching outside your home country, usually due to rights reasons.

VPNs encrypt and anonymise your data and enable you to appear as if you are watching from your home country, so they are useful for much more than entertainment.

Farmer vs Diaz undercard

It’s an action packed undercard − highlights include Demetrius Andrade’s WBO Word Middleweight Title defence. The American is a heavy favourite but takes on a technically impressive and gutsy Irishman in Luke Keeler.

Equally, any chance to see Amanda Serrano is worth taking. She’s one of the best female fighters in the sport and registered an impressive points win over Heather Hardy last time out.

Unified super-bantamweight world champ, Daniel Roman, faces an up-and-coming talent in Murodjon Akhmadaliev.

Finally, don’t blink when Anthony Sims Jr. steps into the ring − he’s stopped 18 of his 20 opponents so far and will be looking to add another stoppage win tonight.

Here’s the full undercard:

  • Demetrius Andrade (30-4-1) vs Luke Keeler (17-2)
  • Daniel Roman (28-0) vs Murodjon Akhmadaliev (7-0)
  • Anthony Sims Jr. (20-0) vs Roamer Alexis Angulo (25-1)
  • Amanda Serrano (37-1-1) vs Simone Aparecida Da Silva (17-14)
  • Otha Jones III (4-0) vs Juan Santiago (16-17-2)
  • Movladdin Biyarslanov (5-0) vs Nicolas Atilio Velazquez (11-7)
  • Jake Paul (debut) vs Ali Eson Gib (debut)
  • Alexis Espino (4-0) vs Vincent Baccus (4-1-1)
  • Austin Williams (4-0) vs Donald Sanchez (5-2)
  • Avril Mathie (4-0-1) vs Angelina Hoffschneider (0-2)

Farmer vs Diaz match preview

Tevin Farmer (30-4-1) vs Joseph Diaz (30-1)

Tevin Farmer is a pretty heavy favourite going into this match, but Joseph Diaz has an impressive record himself, with fewer losses, and isn’t without a chance.

Diaz’s only loss to date came against one of the best featherweights in the business, Gary Russell Jr, who beat him via unanimous decision. There’s no shame in that loss and it will be valuable experience going in against Farmer.

Farmer meanwhile had a smattering of early-career losses, before he became the force he is today. Given his current form these pockmarks on his record are nothing to worry about, but may give Diaz hope.

Farmer certainly has the bigger names on his record, with notable wins over Billy Dib and Francisco Fonseca to his name. Meanwhile, one of Diaz’s biggest wins came against Fonseca’s slightly less high-profile twin brother, Freddy Fonseca.

Diaz is, if his record is to be believed, a much harder puncher. He’s stopped 15 of the 30 men he’s beaten in the ring, while Farmer has only cut six of his 30 wins short. The question will be, will Diaz get chance to use that power? Or will Farmer’s movement and ring generalship win the day?

This fight is a hard one to call, but fans of Tevin Farmer will hope that his experience is enough to see the IBF belt return to Philadelphia. Either way, it’s well worth tuning in on Sky Sports, Sky Go, Now TV, or DAZN.
