Fury vs. Ngannou live stream: Can you watch for free?
Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou, both wearing crowns, face off on a promotional poster.

The lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is fighting the former UFC champion Francis Ngannou this weekend. The fight is billed as the battle of the kings from the world's two leading combat sports. Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs), being an actual boxer with a claim for greatest current heavyweight, will certainly have the advantage. Ngannou (0-0, 0 KOs) has never been in an official boxing match, but he does have a few interesting weapons in his arsenal. For instance, he's being trained by one of the greatest heavyweights of the 80s and 90s, Mike Tyson. Fury may also be hesitant to fully engage Ngannou, since Tyson Fury vs. Oleksandr Usyk has been confirmed for December. If Fury is injured, it puts that unification fight in jeopardy.

Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou is at 2:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, October 28. It is an ESPN+ PPV in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Ireland, and on DAZN in the rest of the world. Here's everything you need to know to watch it from anywhere in the world, including whether there’s a free Fury vs Ngannou live stream that you can watch legally. You’ll need to hurry, though: the event is already underway, with the headline fighters expected to enter the ring in a little over an hour.
