The Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko fight will take place on Saturday, October 5 at Madison Square Garden, New York. While the undercard will begin at 7 PM EST, the main event isn’t expected to start until approximately 11 PM EST (8 PM PST / 1 AM BST). Below, we’ll explain how you can live stream this IBF Middleweight World Championship bout from abroad.
It’s worth keeping in mind that we’ll only be recommending official sources for the Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko fight. With this being a high-profile title match, there are sure to be several unauthorized streams available. However, these carry a real risk of being taken offline without warning for copyright violation. Worse still, they tend to be laggy and are usually very low resolution. With plenty of official sources spanning multiple countries, there’s no need to resort to unreliable streams from unlicensed third parties.
The Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko fight will only be shown on region-locked services. This means you’ll need a VPN in order to watch the event from abroad.
How to watch Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko abroad with a VPN
Don’t know where to begin? Don’t worry! This is where we take you through how to live stream Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko abroad:
Here’s how to stream Golovkin vs Derevyanchenko live online with a VPN:
- Sign up with a high quality VPN. We recommend ExpressVPN. However, NordVPN and CyberGhost are great value alternatives that are ideal for live streaming.
- Download and install the VPN app or browser extension for the device from which you want to watch Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko online.
- Open the VPN app and connect to a server in the country from which you want to watch the IBF Middleweight Championship bout. This will change your IP address and trick geo-restricted services into thinking you’re located in a different country.
- Clear your browser’s cache and cookies. This ensures that the website or service in question forgets your true IP address and location and accepts that of the VPN.
- Go to the platform you’re using to live stream Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko (you may need to register for an account if you’re not an existing customer) and select a video. The content should be unblocked!
We always recommend setting up your VPN and testing it on the platform in question in advance of a live sporting event. This gives you time to get help from your VPN’s customer support if there are any issues, helping you avoid missing the fight.

Whether live streaming Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko via Sky Go or Now TV, you’ll need a VPN and UK IP address in order to watch from abroad. ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it out risk-free and receive a full refund if you’re not satisfied.
Boxing fans in the US can live stream Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko on DAZN. In fact, DAZN signed Golovkin to a six-fight deal in March 2019. This sports streaming service costs $19.99 USD per month or $99.99 per year. It can be accessed via browser as well as an extensive range of apps.
However, DAZN US is region-locked and only available in the US. What’s more, it’s notoriously difficult to unblock even with the very best VPNs. As such, there’s no guarantee it will work abroad, even with a US IP address from a VPN.
Fox Sports will broadcast Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko from 12 PM (AEST) via the pay-per-view Foxtel Channel 504. To watch online, you’ll need to be a subscriber of Foxtel or Optus TV featuring Foxtel. You’ll then be able to order the match via Main Event for the price of $49.95 AUD.
Unfortunately, Foxtel doesn’t hold the rights to stream the Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko fight online. This means you can’t watch the fight via the Foxtel Go or Foxtel Now apps. However, it’s possible to watch online via the Main Event website (you’ll be asked to log in with your Foxtel account). Foxtel and Main Event are region-locked and only available in Australia. To watch abroad, you’ll need to connect to a server in Australia via a VPN.
Can I use a free VPN to watch Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko live online?
The Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko fight is only available with a small number of broadcasters, limiting the ways in which you can live stream the event online. Indeed, Sky Go, DAZN, and Foxtel are all geo-restricted which means you’ll need a VPN to watch abroad. The problem with free VPNs is that many can’t get around these restrictions, particularly when anti-VPN measures are in place.
Even if your free VPN is able to unblock one of the services on which the Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko fight is available, there are additional problems to consider. Namely, the limited number of servers means you’ll likely notice high server load and slow speeds. It’s even possible that the excessive amount of lag and buffering will lead you to miss out on the action. We also advise against free VPNs due to their lack of security. Many don’t encrypt your data and some even log your browsing data before selling it to third parties.
