After a stinging defeat last year that cost him both of his light heavyweight titles, Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev has a lot riding on this weekend’s championship bout with the man who took his belts: Colombian fighter Eleider Alvarez. Sergey Kovalev vs. Eleider Alvarez II is sure to be an exciting rematch between two incredible fighters, and if you’re looking for a way to watch it online, now’s your chance to start your ESPN Plus 7-day trial and stream it totally free.

Rather than a simple mobile version of the ESPN cable channel, ESPN Plus is a premium streaming service that offers a myriad of sporting content via the ESPN mobile app. This includes everything from UFC to soccer, as well as championship boxing matches. ESPN won the bid to broadcast Sergey Kovalev vs. Eleider Alvarez II, so an ESPN Plus 7-day trial is the perfect way to watch it for free.

Sergey Kovalev has had a rough time of things recently. The fighter and former light heavyweight champion who once seemed unbeatable has suffered several losses – the freshest defeat being his seventh-round knockout last August at the hands of Alvarez, who claimed Kovalev’s WBO and IBA light heavyweight titles with the victory.

Eleider Alvarez, for his part, is heading into this fight with a perfect record of 24 wins (12 of which were by knockout, including his last victory against Kovalev) and zero losses. Kovalev has a lot riding on this fight, as Alvarez will be the one defending the WBO title this time around – but after recent disappointments, many fans are skeptical about the Krusher’s ability to deal Alvarez his first defeat and reclaim his belt.

Sergey Kovalev vs. Eleider Alvarez II is scheduled for 12 a.m. ET on February 3 (that’s Saturday night, although the date will technically be Sunday), with the undercard bouts starting at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday evening, so now’s the time to start your ESPN Plus 7-day free trial. Along with live match coverage, your trial subscription gives you access to pre- and post-fight content along with a bundle of other sports goodies. After your trial period, ESPN Plus is just $5 per month or $50 per year, and you’re free to cancel at any time with no fees.

ESPN Plus was rolled out last year as ESPN’s long-awaited streaming app, giving users access to a cornucopia of sports content including live matches and much more for just about everything from professional cricket to UFC. ESPN Plus is also the place for exclusive shows like The Boardroom, an all-new production that’s set to air only through this streaming service. If you’re looking to catch this series and you don’t already have an ESPN Plus membership, then now’s your chance to take advantage of the 7-day trial to stream it for free.

The Boardroom is a sports- and business-focused show brought to ESPN Plus by Thirty Five Media, a company founded in 2017 by basketball superstar-turned-entrepreneur Kevin Durant (a man who should need no introduction to hoops fans). Durant, a two-time NBA Champion and Finals MVP, formed his new entertainment company to produce sports entertainment and other media across various platforms like YouTube and ESPN.

On the heels of the massive success of streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, more and more television channels are offering their own streaming options for people who want to enjoy their content away from the TV.

Instead, it's an easy and convenient way to enjoy both pre-programmed and live sports content like UFC, NBA, boxing, cricket, rugby, soccer, and just about anything else you could want to watch. ESPN+ offers a 7-day trial, too, so if you're looking to watch the ongoing India vs. New Zealand cricket One Day T20I matches, then you can take advantage of this to stream them for free.
