Tonight’s the night Deontay Wilder returns to Sin City to defend his WBC heavyweight crown in a potentially dangerous rematch with Luis Ortiz. Will the champ remain undefeated after the day is out? Or will King Kong climb new heights and exact revenge? You can find out by grabbing a Wilder vs Ortiz live stream wherever you are using this handy guide.
Wilder vs Ortiz- where and when?
The Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz rematch is set to take place today (Saturday, November 23) at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.
You can expect the main fight to begin at around 9pm PT local time and midnight ET. That means an early 5am GMT start on Sunday morning for fight fans tuning in from the UK.
The challenger dominated the early rounds when the two fighters first met back in March last year, only for Wilder’s class to eventually show in the 10th round when he delivered a TKO.
For Wilder, all roads currently look to lead to Tyson Fury and a win against Ortiz should ensure a rematch with the Gypsy King. The champ also has his hugely impressive 42-fight unbeaten record to protect.
Forty-year-old Cuban star Ortiz may have age, height and reach against him as he goes in to face Wilder once more, but he knows he can hurt the champ following their last back-and-forth encounter. Ortiz also has some momentum going into the fight, having chalked up three impressive wins together on the spin.
Saturday’s fight has all the ingredients for being one of the year’s best dust ups. Read on to find out how to get a Wilder vs Ortiz live stream from absolutely anywhere in the world.
How to watch the Wilder vs Ortiz fight from outside your country
You can scroll down this page for information on who’d broadcasting the fight in different territories. But if you want to watch the boxing outside of your country you may find that the content is geo-restricted. That could mean that, despite having access when on home turf (and having potentially paid for pricey subscriptions), you are blocked while away. Fret not, that can be rectified with the use of a clever piece of software called a VPN and won’t involve lurking around dodgier parts of the internet for a ropey old stream.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed this software you are able to change where you appear to be thanks to some smart IP address bouncing. That not only gets around geo-restricted content but also helps keep your identity more secure when online.
These Virtual Private Networks are thankfully easy to use. Simply select one of our best VPN picks (or opt straight for our number one favorite ExpressVPN), open it up and pick out your country of choice from the ‘choose location’ menu, and then start watching as if you were sat back at home. Easy!
ExpressVPN is the best all-round VPN for streaming, comes with 30-day money back guarantee and 3 months FREE when you sign up for an annual plan.
And don’t get the impression that this is all VPNs are any good for. They’ve also become the first line of defence for millions of people against cyber crime and security breaches.
