John Ryder takes on Andrey Sirotkin this weekend in the UK and in this guide I’ll be showing you how you can watch the fight live online in any country in the world.
Ryder has everything on the line for this fight because if he manages to take down Sirotkin then he’ll become the mandatory challenger for Callum Smith’s WBA super-middleweight title.
The fight in the UK is being shown on Sky Sports but around the world, it may be harder to find a live stream of the event. I don’t recommend resorting to sketchy streams because not only are they illegal but they’ll likely fill your device full of viruses and other nasty trojans.
Below I’m going to show you how you can access a completely free legitimate stream or access your Sky Sports account abroad if you’re a UK resident travelling.

If you’ve got no official way to watch the Ryder vs Sirotkin fight or you don’t have access to the cable or paid-network that’s showing it then there is a ‘free’ way you can watch the fight. It doesn’t involve any sketchy streams either.
The Ryder vs Sirotkin fight is being shown for free in Russia on the official network MatchTV. By using an app called a VPN you can pretend you’re in Russia allowing you to watch the fight entirely free.
VPN apps aren’t free themselves and will cost a couple of pounds / dollars but you won’t need to pay any subscription to watch the fight. I recommend using ExpressVPN but a couple of other good providers are NordVPN and VyprVPN which are worth checking out.
