Streaming service DAZN has pulled off a coup to land yet another big-ticket boxing bout in 2023. This time it's tonight's alluring pan-Atlantic featherweight unification match between Jesse 'Bam' Rodriguez and Sunny Edwards. 

The undercard is now underway at the Desert Diamond Arena in Arizona, but all the attention is on two of the world's premier featherweights. In this article we'll explain how to watch Jesse Rodriguez vs Sunny Edwards live streams from anywhere with a VPN, if can't get your usual streaming service while away from home.

Over six years and respectively 18 and 20 fights into their professional careers, no man has yet to beat Rodriguez or Edwards. And both fighters will put gold — as well as those unblemished records — on the line in Arizona today.

In April, Bam Rodriguez added the vacant WBO featherweight title to the previously won WBC super flyweight title on his resume. The unanimous points victory over Cristian Gonzalez may not have been the most convincing performance he's managed since the 23-year-old burst on to the scene but he did so with a broken jaw and once again became the youngest active title holder in world boxing. A victory today  would win him Edwards' IBF strap and be a serious statement that he intends to deliver on his promise 

In Sunny Edwards, Bam meets a 27-year-old in the prime of his career and coming into a first headline match with four consecutive title retentions. Having never had a professional fight in the States, the Londoner will be determined not to let the big occasion get to him. But there's no doubt he has the technique to seriously test Bam and recent appearances at Wembley Stadium and Sheffield Arena shows he can strut his stuff in front of significant crowds.

This unification fight could easily go either way. Here's everything you need to know to get a Jesse Rodriguez vs Sunny Edwards live stream and to watch the fight card where you are right now.
