Floyd Mayweather will take on Manny Pacquiao live at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas this Saturday (or Sunday if you’re not in the US). With the boxing fight billed to be one of the biggest of recent years there are hundreds of thousands of users around the world looking to watch live online.
There is no magical link to watch online for free but we do have a few useful suggestions.
There are plenty of illegal streams but generally these aren’t worth considering because 1) they’re illegal and 2) they’re often filled with a host of viruses and trojans primed to attack your computer as soon as you visit the site. The first thing to remember is your own computer safety and not go round clicking on random links that promise to stream the fight for free.
There are a handful of ways to watch online and below I’ll take you through the best and most legitimate.
Outside the UK but got Sky? Read here.
The fight is available to UK residents on Sky Sports at a cost of £19.95. Now if you have a Sky Sports account but are outside the UK then you’ll still be able to watch using our simple method details below. The fight starts at 4am on Sunday 3rd May UK time.
For those in the UK simply pay the fee and watch live on your TV or online. Those outside the UK who have a Sky account can pay the fee and then use a service called a Virtual Private Network to view. All you need to do is sign in to your Sky account, pay the required fee and then sign up to a VPN provider.
We recommend you sign up to IPVanish because they’re one of the easiest providers to use and also have UK connections which is what is needed to watch Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao live on Sky Sports from abroad. Just follow the link below and sign up.
