Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia – the crossover boxing bout dubbed ‘Battle of the Baddest’ is about to get underway, and we have all the best ways to watch Fury-Ngannou below.
One of the cheapest Fury vs Ngannou live streams is available in Canada – on TSN Plus. Away from home? Watch from anywhere with a VPN.
Fury’s WBC belt may not be up for grabs, but contesting for the unofficial title of ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ is the sort of honor that often gets the Gypsy King’s blood pumping. With a unification fight with Oleksandr Usyk signed, the unbeaten 35-year-old will use Saturday’s clash to keep his attention in the gym. Fury’s been typically brash in the buildup to this one, predicting a sixth round stoppage.
Ngannou may be making his boxing debut, but the Predator’s UFC performances would indicate that he has the raw weapons to make this fight a realistic contest. The Cameroon-born French fighter won 17 of his 20 MMA fights and has said this week that to box was always his dream. The so-called ‘hardest puncher in the world’ has even invoked the famous Mike Tyson quote against his namesake, declaring: “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.”
Ngannou’s power means he has the proverbial puncher’s chance to take home the WBC Commemorative Riyadh Championship, but Fury is the overwhelming favorite with the bookies. Here’s everything you need to know in order to watch the Fury vs Ngannou live stream, no matter where you are.
How to watch Fury vs Ngannou live streams from anywhere
A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you’re surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you’re in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.
For instance, a Canadian who’s currently in the U.K. could watch Fury vs Ngannou on TSN Plus even though they’re not in Canada.

If you don’t already have ESPN Plus, you need to buy the big PPV fight, plus a monthly subscription to ESPN Plus for a total $90.98 ($79.99 PPV, plus a $10.99 monthly ESPN Plus subscription). If you already have ESPN Plus, then it’s just the (admittedly steep) $79.99 PPV fee for you.

ESPN Plus won’t unlock all regular ESPN content, but it will grant you access to thousands of live events, original shows and series that can’t be found anywhere else (not even on the standard ESPN service).
Remember, this one is being held in Saudi Arabia in the Middle East. The undercard is scheduled to start at 2 p.m ET / 11 a.m. PT, with the main event from 5:40 p.m. ET / 2:40 p.m. PT.

ESPN Plus is also available in a bundle with both Hulu and Disney Plus for $14.99 a month. That gets you all of the ESPN Plus events, top Hulu shows, and the Disney Plus library of classic Disney and Star Wars content, including Ahsoka. You could also pay $24.99 and lose the ads on Hulu and Disney Plus.
If you already use the service but aren’t in the U.S. right now, you can watch Fury vs Ngannou live streams by using a VPN such as Nord VPN. And if, for whatever reason, you can’t get it working, do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money-back guarantee with Nord VPN.
