On Saturday, July 28, the heavyweight clash between British boxer Dillian Whyte and New Zealander Joseph Parker will be taking place at the O2 Arena in London.
Both fighters have been defeated only once in their career, both against Anthony Joshua. Whyte’s defeat came in the seventh round in the same arena in 2015. That defeat allowed Joshua to claim the British heavyweight title. Parker faced Joshua in Cardiff last March and was defeated by unanimous decision. The winner in Saturday’s clash will be awarded a world title shot.
“We’ve both been in with AJ. One of us ended the fight on our feet, the other didn’t. That pretty much speaks for itself,” noted Parker. Meanwhile, Whyte said that Parker is “going to be very desperate (…) because he can’t afford to have back-to-back defeats.”
The clash will be stream live online on a number of channels, including
- Sky Sports Box Office in the UK
- DAZN in Austria, Canada, Germany, and Switzerland
- Sky Arena in New Zealand
- And Main Event in Australia
The fight will be available on Sky for £19.95 as a Pay Per View purchase. DAZN will be offering the fight to all its subscriber – DAZN’s monthly subscription costs €9.99 but the service also offers a free one-month trial. Watching it on Sky Arena will cost you 49.99 New Zealand dollars, while Main Event will be charging 39.95 Australian dollars.
So you’ve got your cash ready and you’re looking forward to savoring the battle, but there is one condition left. Each of the networks listed above only covers the fight in countries listed above. So, for example, if you’re an English resident that happens to be traveling on the day, you’re out of luck.
But wait. There is an easy and affordable fix. For a few extra dollars, you can purchase a subscription to a VPN service and access your network from anywhere in the world. Here’s how it works:
A VPN is a network of servers scattered around the globe used to reroute data. This is particularly useful in our scenario as traffic passing through a specific server will have its original IP (the thing that online streaming channels look at to know where you’re coming from) replaced with an IP from the server’s location.
In simpler terms, if you choose to route your traffic through a UK server, the channel will think that you are still residing in the UK. And it’s very easy to use. Simply
- Download and install a VPN
- Use it to connect to a UK server
- Log in to Sky Sports Box Office and enjoy the show!
We used Sky Sports Box Office as an example above, but you can do the same thing for the rest of the channels. Just make sure that you choose the right server corresponding to your streaming channel.
But Which VPN Should I Choose
There are many VPNs out there, but the one we would recommend is ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN offers a wide range of server locations – meaning that you can connect to almost any geo-restricted platform, offers military-grade encryption, and performed magnificently when it comes to speed.
There are also other good alternatives out there, check out our favorites below, and if you’re undecided, you can read a detailed review of each to help you make up your mind.
