Fight night is fast approaching! On Saturday, September 4, crowds will descend upon the Crypto.com Arena in LA for six hotly-anticipated bouts. The prelims will begin at 19:00 EDT (16:00 PDT / 00:00 BST) with the main event coming about two hours later. There are actually two this time around: Ruiz Jr will fight Ortiz and Cruz will take on Ramirez to decide who gets a shot at the WBC Heavyweight and Lightweight titles, respectively. In short, it’s set to be a memorable night and we’re about to explain how you can watch every second online.
We don’t recommend using unofficial streams. Even putting aside the legal issues, they tend to be unreliable, with choppy, low-quality video. In fact, you can’t even count on a third-party stream to remain online until the end of the event. The good news is that there are a couple of legitimate ways to stream Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz online, making unlicensed streams effectively pointless.
Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz will only be shown on region-locked streaming services. If you’re traveling abroad on fight night, you may need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to watch.
How to stream Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz online from abroad
VPNs aim to keep your online activities private by encrypting all internet traffic to and from your device. They can also hide your true location, which is ideal for those hoping to regain access to their usual services while on vacation abroad. Here’s how to stream Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz anywhere:
- Start by choosing a reputable VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN although Surfshark and ExpressVPN are two great alternatives for live streaming.
- Next, install the VPN app on whichever devices you use for streaming. Don’t worry if you watch on multiple screens. Most VPNs allow at least five connections at a time.
- Log in and select a server in your home country. This changes your IP address, making the websites you visit think you’re still back home.
- Now just visit your country’s Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz broadcaster. You should be able to use it as normal. If not, clear your cookies and try again.
Important: to avoid disappointment, we strongly suggest testing your VPN before September 4. This way, you’ll know of any issues ahead of time and can resolve them with help from your VPN’s customer support team. All of the providers above offer free, 24/7 live chat just in case.

How to watch Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz online on US TV
It’s pretty easy to stream this event online. In fact, you can even watch Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz without cable. The downside is that it’s a $74.99 USD pay-per-view, and there currently aren’t any discounts, workarounds, or coupons you can use to reduce the price. If this doesn’t put you off, just head over to FOX Sports or Fite.tv, create a free account, and purchase your pass.
FOX Sports is only showing this fight in the US. In other words, you’ll need a VPN to use it during a trip abroad. NordVPN includes a 30-day money-back guarantee, meaning you can try it risk-free. If you aren’t impressed (or just don’t need a VPN after this event), simply tell support you’d like to cancel to receive a full refund.
Where else can I watch Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz online?
Not in the US? No problem: you can live stream the Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz fight in Canada (though not anywhere else, unfortunately). Here’s how to follow the action where you are:
Fite.tv is also broadcasting Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz in Canada. For some reason, the Canadian version of the site still charges US dollars, which could incur a currency conversion fee from some banks. You can also pay via PayPal, though, which might reduce this slightly. Alternatively, you could use an American prepaid card, but getting one might be more trouble than it’s worth. In any case, Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz costs $59.99 USD (which is roughly $77 CAD).
Fite.tv shows different content in different countries. As such, you may need a VPN to stream this fight from outside of Canada.
Who is the favorite: Andy Ruiz Jr or Luis Ortiz?
At the moment, Ruiz Jr seems to be a pretty heavy favorite, with some bookmakers offering odds as low as +235 for Ortiz to win. Further, it appears that fans expect a pretty one-sided showing, with most places putting a draw at +1,500 or more.
However, not everyone agrees. Deontay Wilder, who has twice beaten Ortiz, recently claimed he believes Ortiz will win this fight “in a devastating fashion”. There’s certainly precedent, with Ortiz winning 28 of his 33 victories by way of knockout. Of course, Ruiz Jr has 22 knockouts to his name as well, and has shown that he’s comfortable winning on points if he can’t win via KO. Either way, this is a fight for the history books, and one you won’t want to miss.
Ruiz Jr vs Ortiz: full fight card
This is an interesting card because we have two eliminator fights. The first (and most hyped) is between Ruiz Jr and Ortiz. The winner will eventually fight either Wilder or Helenius for Tyson Fury’s WBC Heavyweight belt (assuming he stays retired, which isn’t guaranteed). There’s also the Isaac Cruz vs Eduardo Ramirez fight, which will decide who gets a shot at current WBC Lightweight Champion, Devin Haney.
|Preliminary fights||Kevin Salgado vs Joey Spencer||Super Welterweight|
|Mike Plania vs Raeese Aleem||Super Bantamweight|
