How to live stream the fight wherever you are
If you aren’t sure if you can access BT Sport pay-per view, ESPN, or FOX where you are, then the best way to get around your issues might be a VPN. That’s because access to normal coverage might be geo-blocked – this means you’re prevented from watching outside your home country, generally due to rights reasons.
VPNs encrypt and anonymise your data, making it appear as if you are watching from your home country, making them useful for much more than entertainment.

Foster vs Reid preview
26-year-old Lucien Reid is looking to go one better than last year’s draw against Brad Foster. With two belts on the line, the stakes are high. Reid is undefeated, with eight wins and two draws to his name, he’s stopped four of his opponents.
Foster’s record is not dissimilar, with eleven wins, four stoppages and two draws to his name. He too is undefeated.
There’s little to split the pair on paper, but Foster has more high-profile wins, having gotten the best of Josh Wale to claim the British in the first place.
Reid was the only man to be giving a winning score card in the first fight. Two scored the fight a 114-114 draw, with the other giving it 116-112 to Reid. This obviously resulted in a majority draw.
The fight is on a knife edge and it’s well worth tuning in. Will Brad Foster be able to make the most of his superior experience? Or will Reid build on the one winning card he took last time?
Full undercard roundup
The highlight of the undercard is the super middleweight British title eliminator between Welshman Kody Davies, and Canning-Town trained Nigerian, Umar Sadiq.
Davies beat Zak Chelli last time out and Chelli, in turn, is the one loss on Umar Sadiq’s record. So, for Sadiq, there is a measure of redemption in the win, should he succeed on Saturday night.
There is a genuine animosity between the two that was shown in spades at the press conference. Sadiq told the press that he believed this was caused by Davies struggling to make the super middleweight limit, having formerly fought as a light heavyweight.
Davies has the more high-profile wins on his record, but Sadiq looks to have come one leaps and bounds since his early career loss to Chelli. This is anyone’s fight and could even steal the show.
Also among the notable talents appearing on the card, Dennis McCann goes into his sixth contest after making a bright start to his career so far. He’s stopped four of his five opponents so expect fireworks from Denace ‘The Menace’.
Former British Olympian Muhammad Ali makes his professional debut for Frank Warren. His opponent, Stefan Sashev, looks hand picked to bag Ali a debut stoppage, but has sprung a notable upset before against Brandon Ball. Ali will be able to take confidence from a win then, should he overcome the Bulgarian as expected.
Ryan ‘The Piranha’ Garner, Louie Lynn and Willy Hutchinson have all attracted attention in their fledgling careers and are worth looking out for too. This could be a great card for boxing fans.
