What’s In The Guide
Streaming Boxing in Australia
With names like Canelo Alvarez, Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and our very own Tim Tszyu, boxing is going through a golden period not witnessed since the 1990s. Virtually every weekend there is a huge world title fight taking place, from the Las Vegas strip and Wembley to Plaza Mexico and the Newcastle Entertainment Centre.
Fights fill up the calendar year, from January right through to December across multiple weight divisions from the world of both male and female boxing. There are even huge exhibition fights that include all-time greats like Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson.
These days there are more ways than ever to get your viewing eyes on boxing thanks to a wide range of streaming options that includes a streaming dedicated to the sport. All of these options are practical, great value and give you the best seat in the house to watch live and on demand action from the squared circle.
How to watch Boxing in Australia
Big fight, professional boxing can be watched with Foxtel, Foxtel Now, Kayo Sports and DAZN in Australia. Foxtel and Kayo also give you the option to purchase ad-free Pay Per View mega fights via the Main Event service.
All of these streaming options offer their own unique perks for both occasional and die-hard boxing fans. You can subscribe to long-term or short-term contracts, or simply pay a one-off fee for a specific fight. Check out all of these options and more here.
Stream Boxing live on Kayo
A great option for watching Live and On Demand boxing is Kayo Sports. As they offer everything Fox Sports, Kayo gives you access to international fights from home and abroad. You can also pay for select Main Event PPVs through Kayo featuring the likes of Tim Tszyu and Justis Huni for an added fee. Kayo offer a free 14-day trial offer so that you can check out their current boxing content without paying a cent.
Stream Boxing with Foxtel Now
If you like the idea of getting access to the entire Foxtel TV service without cable or satellite installation, then Foxtel Now is the option for you. Foxtel Now offers a range of streaming services for watching over 50 live sports including boxing, with the option of buying Main Event PPVs. Select boxing fights are included with the Foxtel Now free trial.
Live stream Boxing on Kayo from Telstra
Telstra customers can get boxing access on the cheap with a Kayo from Telstra offer. This service offers all the same sports content available with a standard Kayo subscription, as well as the choice to buy select PPV fights via Main Event. The key difference is you only pay $15 per month for a Basic Plan, and $25 per month for the Premium Plan. Both of these offers include logins for the Kayo app. Main Event PPV costs are not included in your subscription.
Boxing live on Foxtel Now from Telstra
To watch Boxing with the Telstra Foxtel Now option all you need is a Telstra account. The service includes all the same advantages and content as Foxtel Now, the only difference being that the first month is offered for free, and you must commit to a 12 month contract. That means you can also purchase all Main Event PPVs for an added fee when fights go out live.
Watch Boxing live with Foxtel
If you are a Foxtel cable or satellite customer and already have the Sports HD option, there is a super-easy way to stream Boxing live from arenas around the world.

Simply use your Foxtel logins and stream Boxing wherever you may be in Australia.
Stream Boxing on DAZN
A relative newcomer to the Australian sports streaming market in DAZN. They are seen as the ‘Netflix of boxing’ these days and offer some of the biggest fights from around the world Live or On Demand.

Stream Boxing replays on demand
With fights taking place in different time zones around the world, boxing can be difficult to watch Live without staying up until the early hours for Australians. Even when fights do go out live at a good time, you may be busy socialising or working, so other options are a must.
Thanks to On Demand replays you can just watch fights as if they were going out live the second you press play. Apps like Kayo also allow you to watch events with the ‘No Spoilers’ feature, which ensures you don’t see any results before you’ve watched every round at an appropriate time. Main Event and DAZN also give you exclusive full replays of fights for up to a week after the fight goes out live.
How to stream Boxing for free
A great way to watch select boxing fights, including PPV events that have gone out live only weeks previously, is with a free trial. In Australia, you can get free trials for watching Boxing with both Kayo and Foxtel Now. Foxtel and Kayo coverage includes replays of fights including the likes of Tyson Fury, Tim Tszyu and Joseph Parker.
Most free trials are available to new and returning customers. Even though there is no trial available with Telstra, they do offer alternative discounts and reduced costs per month for their Kayo and Foxtel Now services. DAZN does not offer a free trial to watch boxing on their platform.

Boxers to watch in 2021
Boxing is filled to the brim with top talent, but there are a few fighters that demand our attention every time they fight. Check them out below.
The best pound-for-pound fighter in the world at the moment is Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. He has cleaned up in every division he has stepped into and has even recently won fights at Light Heavyweight. He is easily one of the most methodical fighters in the business, slowly picking apart his opponents with his impressive, elusive movement.
One man that has managed to come close to stopping the Alvarez juggernaut is Kazak middleweight, Gennadiy ‘GGG’ Golovkin. He controversially drew his first fight with the Mexican and lost the second on points. Expect a trilogy fight somewhere in the near future.
The king of a very competitive Heavyweight division is the man-mountain, Anthony Joshua. He holds three versions of the World Title and is currently chasing a fight with Tyson Fury to unify the division for the first time in the modern era. He nearly always produces a knockout, and at times has a suspect chin, making his fights a real rollercoaster ride.
The next big thing to come out of Australia is Tim Tszyu, son of boxing royalty, Kostya. He has cleaned up at the domestic level in the Welterweight division and is now looking to step up for a World Title shot. His weight class is possibly the most talented in boxing, so he is going to have to overcome some serious tests if he wants to reach the top like his old man.
