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.

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 just $2.99/month in Australia, you get access to all of DAZN's content.

That includes huge fights featuring boxing superstars Anthony Joshua, Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin in December. Information on how to sign up to DAZN can be found here.

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 $50-$60 on top of your regular subscription for Kayo, Foxtel or Optus TV customers. Virtually all of the biggest fights globally have traditionally been shown on Main Event in Australia.

Deal

Watch Gallen vs Browne on Main Event via the Kayo Sports app. No Kayo Sports account required. Each separate card 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 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 Sports HD pack, check your TV guide for the next boxing event. If not, the Sports HD pack is $25/month through Foxtel. You must also sign up for the Foxtel Plus package $49/month, blowing the total out to $74 per month.

You may also find that you're up for some potential installation costs, though Foxtel iQ deals are also regularly available. Foxtel is the only broadcaster in Australia that currently offers users access to 4K sports content which is a bonus.

You could also join Foxtel Now, the pay TV giant's digital streaming service. For that you need both the Essentials pack and the Sports pack, a total of $54/month. If you haven't tried it previously, Foxtel Now offers a 10-day free trial. We have also put together a full guide which includes the list of compatible devices.

Stream boxing on Kayo Sports

Kayo Sports runs the same boxing content you can access on Foxtel for a much cheaper price. Kayo currently has a 14-day free trial for new users. After that, a Basic subscription is just $25/month which allows you to watch on 2 screens. There is also a Premium subscription for $35/month that gives you another screen. You can check out our full Kayo review for more information.

Kayo also now gives you another way to access Main Event. Starting with Tim Tszyu's strong win over Jeff Horn back in August this year, you can now secure PPV events on Main Event via Kayo, with or without a subscription. We have all the details on this option here.

Kayo has a wide range of special features, such as SplitView, where you can watch four sports at once on the same screen. It is compatible with Android and iOS devices, Android TV, Telstra TV, Apple TV, Samsung TV (2017 or later), PCs, Macs, Chromecast and AirPlay.
