After four years of waiting, DAZN has finally landed in Australia, which will be music to the ears of fight fans, boxing in particular. The first bell is set to ring in December, with two of the biggest names in the sport stepping into the ring over back to back weekends of action. Find out how to watch it all live with DAZN right here.
DAZN Boxing Preview
Recognising that boxing is a lot more than just the odd pay per view event, DAZN jumped into the fight world in 2016 to provide comprehensive coverage of the world’s biggest bouts. They work closely with boxing’s more well-respected promoter such as Matchroom and Golden Boy, giving a deserved platform to talented, world champion fighters that in some countries slip under the radar.
DAZN (pronounced da-zone) have definitely found their niche as boxing is going through somewhat of a golden period, with heavyweights like Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury and lighter fighters such as Canelo Alvarez and Terrance Crawford at the fore. There are so many high-quality, top billing fights on offer every weekend – and up until now, Aussie fight fans have been missing out – big time!
However, from December 2020 that is all set to change. DAZN has chosen two of the biggest names to headline their opening month down under. Heavyweight World Champion Anthony Joshua (December 13th) and Saul Alvarez (December 19th) are both set for world title defences in the UK and US respectively. There will also a huge amount of On demand content that includes classic fights and boxing documentaries in their streaming library.
How to Watch or Stream DAZN
For the first month at least, DAZN will cost only $2.99 in Australia. That’s great value when you consider that their upcoming fights would each fetch upwards of $20 on PPV in most countries. There is expected to be live boxing every weekend from around the world, so live times will vary. However, all content is available to watch after On Demand.
You can download the free app from Google and Apple stores once you have created your account. DAZN does not currently have a free trial offer.
DAZN can be used on just about every type of device you can think of such as PCs, Macs Smart TVs, Games Consoles, Tablets and Mobile Phones. Check out our full DAZN device compatibility list below.
