Oleksandr Usyk has arrived in London desperate to prove himself worthy of a heavyweight title shot against either Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury, but he’ll be fighting the best version of Dereck Chisora according to trainer David Haye.
The English heavyweight, now 36, has been working with Haye since his loss to Dillian Whyte in December 2018 and beat David Price last time out. But anything other than defeat would be something of a shock as he faces Ukrainian prodigy Usyk.
The former undisputed cruiserweight champion is desperate for a mandatory title shot, and has brushed off comments about his size as he prepares to face the sizeable frame of Chisora.
The pair are due to clash around 10pm on Saturday night, with a full undercard beginning at 7pm. Read on to find out how you can watch every punch on a huge night for heavyweight boxing.

Watch Usyk vs Chisora live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you’ve paid to watch Usyk vs Chisora, trying to access streams from outside your territory – if you’re on holiday or working abroad, for example – is a problem. These services know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block you – even if you’re a national of one of these countries.
So, you’ll need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to help 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.
VPNs are as useful for banking as they are at trying to watch video content or access websites that people in your location are not supposed to do. So, whether you want to watch live football, enjoy another country’s Netflix library or just keep your browsing data private, then they’re well worth considering.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service and would recommend the following:
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets.
Which comes in at as little as £2.29 per month and features 24/7 assistance
Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the fight. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
