How to stream boxing fights online in Australia

Make sure you never miss the best boxing has to offer with these options for streaming fights live in Australia.

Update: The next big boxing event is Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou on Sunday 29 October. It will cost $39.95 and be available to stream on Kayo via Main Event or for order through Foxtel. Or you can add it to your DAZN plan for $34.99.

Boxing has always enjoyed a strong following in Australia. From the days when heavyweights ruled the sporting world through to a steady stream of local champions, Aussies have long been interested in the fight game and watching boxing.

It hasn't always been easy – or cheap – to watch some of the biggest and best match-ups in the sport. But that is changing. Here we breakdown your options for watching the fists fly.

How to stream boxing live in Australia

For many years, your only real options for catching top-shelf boxing were outlaying a hefty sum for pay-per-view access at home or heading to your local pub or club. Main Event on Foxtel and more recently Kayo Sports charge for each major fight night. There are also some lower level boxing events that you can access via your existing cable TV or streaming subscription. The situation is slowly evolving for the major events, however, thanks to streaming options like DAZN.

Boxing live streams on DAZN

DAZN is a global sports streaming service that originally launched back in 2016 in a handful of countries. On 1 December 2020, it added a further 200 countries to that list, including Australia, and its main sport of choice is boxing.

Rather than a traditional pay-per-view service, one of DAZN's biggest selling points is its monthly subscription model. For $13.99 a month in Australia, you get access to all of DAZN's content. In addition to live boxing, there is an archive of over 200 fights on demand.

Watch boxing on Main Event

The longstanding king when it comes to accessing the fight game, Main Event is an additional channel for those who have subscribed to pay TV. Fights usually range from around $40-$60 on top of your regular subscription for Kayo or Foxtel iQ customers. Virtually all of the biggest fights globally have traditionally been shown on Main Event in Australia.


Stream Main Event PPVs via Kayo Sports

Watch PPV's on Main Event via the Kayo Sports app. No Kayo Sports account required. Each separate event is charged as PPV.

Stream boxing live on Foxtel

If you are content to watch boxing at a lower level than the big-name title fights you will find on DAZN or Main Event, Foxtel iQ could have you covered. It has a range of fight nights on its Fox Sports channels.

If you have a Foxtel iQ subscription including the Sport HD pack, check your TV guide for the next boxing event. If not, to get the Sports HD pack, you need it as an addition to the base Foxtel Plus package, blowing the total out to $100 a month.

You may also find that you're up for some potential installation costs.

You could also join Foxtel Now, the pay TV giant's digital streaming service. To watch boxing (or any sport for that matter), you need both the Essentials pack and the Sports pack, a total of $54 a month. A 10-day free trial is available for new customers. We have also put together a full guide which includes the list of compatible devices.
