Lucas Matthysse and Manny Pacquiao will be going fist to fist on Sunday, July 15, and the whole world will be watching. Regardless of your location, however, there are no official sources to view Matthysse v. Pacquiao on Kodi.
Instead, we recommend you check out streaming options from official sources that will be live streaming the match online.
International broadcast rights for boxing matches are often tightly controlled. Unlike The World Cup or Tour de France, boxing matches work out their streaming rights for each individual fight. As such, the popularity of the fight will influence how many locations stream the match.
Due to Pacquiao’s delays in signing paperwork by Pacquiao’s promotor, MP Promotions, the Matthysse v. Pacquiao event will only be available through ESPN+. And while there is an ESPN Kodi addon that works if you have access to ESPN via cable or cord-cutting services, ESPN+ does not work through this addon.
There may be unofficial streams available through several third-party addons, such as SportsDevil or UFC Finest. However, Comparitech neither recommends or condones using infringing addons to stream content such as the Matthysse v. Pacquiao fight.
As such, there are no official Kodi addons that will bring you the Pacquiao v. Matthysse fight on July 15.
Beyond ESPN, the Philippine public broadcaster ABS-CDN will have the match for free. There is currently no indication regarding whether ABS-CDN will have the match live streaming online, however, but you can check the ABS-CDN website closer to the start of the game to check.
