Please note that we’ll only be recommending official sources for the Ruiz vs Joshua fight. There will likely be unlicensed streams available due to the high profile of the fight. However, these streams tend to be laggy and often have low-resolution. They can also be cut off suddenly without warning due to violating copyright laws, meaning that you might not even be able to see the full fight. You won’t have these issues with a legitimate streaming source and there’s no need to resort to unreliable third-party streams since legitimate streaming sources are available in several countries.
All of the platforms showing the Joshua vs Ruiz fight are geo-restricted. As a result, you’ll need a VPN to access them abroad.
How to watch Ruiz vs Joshua abroad with a VPN
Bypassing regional restrictions is easy with the right VPN. Take a look below for the simple steps to change your location and watch Ruiz vs Joshua abroad.
Here’s how to live stream Ruiz vs Joshua online from anywhere:
- Start by signing up for a VPN if you haven’t already. We mentioned ExpressVPN above, but CyberGhost and NordVPN are both excellent low-cost alternatives.
- Next, download the appropriate version of the app for your device and install it.
- Decide which of the geo-restricted services below you’d like to unblock.
- Connect to one of your VPN’s servers in the required country. For example, you’d need a British server to unblock Sky Box Office or an Australian one for Main Event.
- Try playing a video on your chosen service. It should start immediately but if it buffers endlessly or you see an error, clear your cookies and cache, then refresh the page.
Note that this event will be broadcast live. For this reason, we recommend making sure your VPN works (using the steps above) well before the fight is due to begin. This way, if you run into any problems, you should still have time to get help from your VPN’s customer support team.

Where else can I watch the Joshua vs Ruiz fight online?
The Joshua vs Ruiz fight will be shown in several countries around the world. Read on to find out how to live stream Joshua vs Ruiz where you are:
Uk fans can catch the action on the pay-per-view channel Sky Sports Box Office. A fight pass costs £24.95. Sky’s coverage will begin at 5 PM GMT which means that both the undercard fights and the main event will be broadcasted.
You don’t need to be a Sky customer in order to buy a fight pass because the online platform is separate from their usual subscriptions. However, note that if you are a customer, you can’t buy the fight via your TV box and then watch it online. You can also watch the fight on Now TV but the price will be the same if you do, so there’s not much benefit in this.
Sky Sports and Now TV are both geo-locked, so you’ll need a VPN to access them from outside of the UK.
