With so many fans rearing to watch, the inevitable is bound to happen: illegal streams. However, there’s no reason to turn to a copyright-infringing stream. There are plenty of legitimate streaming options available that will allow you to watch Lomachenko vs Lopez live online anywhere in the world in high quality and for free.
Every streaming service broadcasting the Lomachenko vs Lopez fight will be region-locking its content. You will require a VPN to bypass content blocking and access your usual home streaming services if you’re in a country where one of the streaming options listed isn’t available.

Virtual Private Networks, or VPNs, help secure your online identity by funneling your data through private channels set up between your computer and the VPN service provider. Once your data is fully anonymized and secured, your identity and location are protected. This ultimately allows you to bypass geographic content restrictions on streaming services, avoid speed throttling from your ISP, or protect your data from third parties sniffing out open data connections over WiFi.
We recommend ExpressVPN as the most reliable option to help bypass content restrictions or quality throttling from ISPs. The service not only offers a large number of servers in countries worldwide, but it also maintains strict privacy standards that protect your data and your identity.
Sign-up for ExpressVPN takes less than 5 minutes. Just pick a subscription length, download and install the software, then connect to a server of your choice. You can sign up to and get started with ExpressVPN in under 5 minutes. Just choose a subscription length, download and activate the software, then connect to a server in a country of your choice (such as the US, UK, Germany, or Canada). And don’t worry; ExpressVPN offers a lengthy, no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee. Once the Lomachenko vs Lopez fight is through, you can easily ditch the service for a refund.
How to live stream Lomachenko vs Lopez from abroad with a VPN
Two excellent things happened with the Lomachenko vs Lopez fight. First, Lomachenko lowered his take for the fight to get Lopez to agree to it. Secondly, ESPN snagged the broadcast rights, then decided not to push the fight over to Pay-Per-View. The result? Loads of streaming services carrying the event, most of which have a free trial period.
Here’s how to watch Lomachenko vs Lopez live online from anywhere:
- Create a VPN account with a trusted provider. We recommend ExpressVPN, but also have tested and trust NordVPN or Surfshark for the security and functionality.
- Install and activate your VPN software.
- Create a free trial account with one of the services listed below.
- Connect to a VPN server in the country where your service is hosting the stream.
- Make sure to test the stream with your VPN before the event starts.
Loma vs Lopez is going to be a one-time event broadcast live worldwide. Test your VPN connection with your streaming service of choice before the event starts to make sure you don’t miss any of the fight card.
How to watch Lomachenko vs Lopez on US TV
As noted above, ESPN owns the broadcast rights to the 2020 Lomachenko vs Lopez fight. Normally, ESPN would try to push the fight through its Pay-Per-View service. Instead, the company is offering this history-making match through its ESPN cable channel and through its ESPN+ streaming service.
For US subscribers, that means you have multiple options to get the Loma vs Lopez fight completely free. Here are all of your options:
- FuboTV: “Family” package or above offers ESPN with a 7-day free trial
- Sling TV: “Orange” package offers ESPN with a 3-day free trial
- YouTube TV: Offers ESPN with a 7-day free trial
- Hulu + Live TV: Offers ESPN with a 7-day free trial
- Vidgo: “Core” package offers ESPN with a 7-day free trial
- AT&T TV Now: “Plus” package offers ESPN with a 7-day free trial
Again, those are the free options. If you want to use ESPN+, Disney no longer offers a free trial with that service. However, the price is incredibly low at just $5.99 per month.
We’ve tested and verified the effectiveness of all of these free trials. You’ll get 100% access to all of the content offered in these services during the free trial, to include the Lomachenko vs Lopez fight. Just sign up, watch the fight on ESPN, then cancel at your leisure before the free trial ends.
How to watch Lomachenko vs Lopez in the UK
None of the major UK-based PPV or cable sports networks decided to pick up Lomachenko vs Lopez in the UK. You aren’t without options, though you may have to pay a small amount to get access to the fight.
Best option: If you have a US payment method, we recommend you use a VPN to sign up for a free trial with one of the streaming services listed above that carry ESPN. ExpressVPN works to unblock content on all of these services.
Secondary option: FITE.TV will be carrying the Loma vs Lopez fight internationally at a cost of just £9.99.
How to watch Lomachenko vs Lopez in Australia
Much like US fans, Australian boxing fans can turn to a free trial service to watch the Lomachenko vs Lopez title match. In Australia, the fight is scheduled broadcasting through Fox Sports (Channel 507), which you can get through a cable TV network, or with a 14-day free trial to Kayo.
How to watch Loma vs Lopez anywhere in the world
If you’re not in the US, UK, Mexico (with ESPN+ coverage), or Australia, you can still watch Loma vs Lopez. All you need is FITE.TV. The company has yet to announce which countries will have the Loma vs Lopez fight, but it plans to announce more countries as the Oct. 17 date approaches. And consequently, you can still use a VPN like ExpressVPN with FITE.TV to purchase the fight and watch live online from anywhere.
Lomachenko vs Lopez: Full schedule
The Loma vs Lopez title fight is scheduled for Saturday, October 17, 10:00 PM EST (4 AM GMT+1). While the event is taking place at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, coronavirus restrictions mean nobody will be attending in person; everyone’s going to be watching online.
The fight card is small this time around. Loma vs Lopez is at the top of the fight card, but there are two other fights scheduled for the night:
- Lanell Bellows vs Edgar “The Chosen One” Berlanga
- Alex “El Cholo” Saucedo vs Arnold Barboza Jr.
All fights will be available to stream from your chosen streaming method.
