What else is on DAZN?
DAZN isn’t that well known in the U.S. but it’s more established abroad. It launched in 2016, but has been focusing on expansion in the U.S.
Major League Baseball agreed to a three-year deal with DAZN for live digital rights. The deal will result in a new nightly show that will have “live look-ins” to the best MLB action as it’s happening. So it sounds like a MLB equivalent of NFL RedZone.
DAZN says it plans to become a multi-sport platform in the US market, starting with combat sports. There will be more than 100 fight nights from Matchroom Boxing, Bellator MMA and other international promotions.
Is the Canelo vs Fielding fight on PPV?
No. Canelo, the undisputed king of pay-per-view boxing, signed a five-year, 11-fight deal with DAZN. The fight with Fielding is his first of an 11-fight deal that Canelo has with DAZN. Golden Boy Promotions will also put up to 10 high-caliber fight nights that will live stream on DAZN in 2019.
Can I watch Canelo fight in Canada?
Yes. DAZN will also live stream Canelo vs Rocky, but you need to sign up for the Canadian version of DAZN. You’ll still get a free trial like in the U.S.
What’s the best way to watch Canelo vs Rocky live?
Personally, I’m a big fan of using a Roku connected to my router with an Ethernet cord to guard against having any lag.
DAZN does not say what kind of Internet speed you need for a quality live stream for the fight.
But other live streaming platforms can serve as a rule of thumb. DirecTV Now recommends 2.5 to 7.5 Mbps for HD quality live streaming. Sling TV says a constant speed of 5.0 Megabits per second is needed. Chances are you will have plenty of download speed with a typical broadband or DSL connection.
I would recommend signing up for a free trial to watch the Canelo fight as soon as possible because there will be tremendous demand on DAZN’s servers.
