How to watch Usyk vs Gassiev World Boxing Super Series
Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.
The World Boxing Super Series has entered its final stage and in this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch the Cruiserweight final between Usyk and Gassiev.
The tournament has been taking place across the world since 2017 leading to a final showdown between the Ukranian Usyk and Russian Gassiev.
Depending on where you live in the world depends on what kind of access you’ll get to the fight. Many countries just aren’t showing it and in others it’s reserved for expensive Pay-per-view networks that you might not have access to or just can’t afford to pay for.
Thankfully in some countries it’s being shown online for free officially and below I’ll show you how you can watch those live streams of the Usyk vs Gassiev fight.
Where is the Usyk vs Gassiev fight shown
Across the world the options for watching the Usyk vs Gassiev vary.
For example in the United Kingdom it’s being shown on the premium paid-for network ITV Box Office. Yet in other countries such as the United States and Russia, it’s being shown completely for free.
In America the fight is being shown live on the World Boxing Super Series YouTube channel and in Russia on the MatchTV! network’s website.
What you’ll need to watch the fight
If you try and visit either of those live streams outside their intended country you’ll be blocked from watching.
However, with an app called a VPN you can alter your location and make it appear as if you are in one of those countries, unblocking the live stream.
A VPN will let you watch the fight completely free.
A VPN is a legal privacy tool that helps you change your location to watch the fight on one of the official networks from another country.
VPN apps are offered by many different companies and my recommended provider ExpressVPN allows you to watch on a Windows or Mac computer, Android or Apple iOS tablet or phone and even the Amazon Fire TV and Fire Stick.
