What started off as a mere speculation and shop talk is now soon to materialize. We’re talking about no other thing than the fight between Rocky Fielding and Saul Canelo Álvarez which is slated to hold on the 15th of December.
Considering the impressive record held by both fighters, this is sure to be one tough fight.
Alvarez will have the highest moral boost of the bunch, coming off the biggest fight of his career which has made him the current WBA and WBC middleweight title holder. Fielding is no slouch too, though, having 27 wins to his name – of which 15 are Kos.
Again, this is the fight you mustn’t miss. Why would anyone even want to miss it at all?
Possible Viewing Problems
The fact is that many might want to watch this fight only to find out on the day that they cannot. The reason could be a number of things.
One of the common problems will arise from geo-blocking of the content. This can easily prevent people outside of the US from watching these boxers pit their stuff against each other. Note that this will also affect US residents who are travelling at the time of the fight.
Even for those in the US, there might be a problem of blackouts at the time when the game is being shown. A common example of this is with HBO which will restrict users from streaming boxing games happening live. Of course, any of these can turn out to be frustrating for the viewers.
Guess what? It doesn’t have to be so.
Using a VPN to watch the boxing game
You can get in on all the action at Madison Square Gardens on the 15th of December with the aid of a VPN. This works for the different classes of viewers we have described up there and takes care of any and all possible problems for you.
The reason why a VPN works is mainly because of its ability to separate your physical address from your IP address. That way, you can access the content from outside the US like you were in the states as at the time of the games.
Another advantage is that you get to connect to a server location different from where the game has been blacked out. Provided you are in the US, and also happen to be in the blackout location, that is.
To watch Rocky Fielding vs Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez with a VPN, you should:
- Seek out a good VPN provider and subscribe to their plans
- Connect to a server location in the US where the games are being broadcasted
- Subscribe to a suitable plan on a streaming device/ platform of your choice (fuboTV, Hulu, CANAL+, Sling TV, Showtime, Kodi, etc.)
- Log on at the time of the fight and stream endlessly.
It doesn’t get easier than that.
Choosing the right VPN
The first thing, as we have mentioned above, would be to choose a VPN. Note that this is one of the most important decisions that would affect how you would enjoy the boxing game.
Ensure the VPN you pick has been optimized for speed so that you don’t suffer lags when streaming the games. Likewise, you should look for a VPN provider that promises unlimited bandwidth on top of their speed offering.
To wrap it up, ensure the VPN is big on security while also having numerous servers in the choice market – the United States.
