Joshua Buatsi has been tipped for big things ever since picking up bronze at the Rio Olympics in 2016 but the Ghana-born light heavyweight is yet to explode onto the world scene. The 30-year-old has often been accused of taking the easy fight in his 17-0 professional record. Now trained by Virgil Hunter, Buatsi is a keen practitioner of the sweet science and has an excellent boxing IQ, but he needs to come through a war if he's to be feared by light heavyweight kings Dmitry Bivol and Artur Beterbiev.

Dan Azeez has reached this point the hard way. He came through the ABAs as an amateur and got tongues wagging by winning the prestigious Box Cup in 2013 at Alexandra Palace, but it was a September 2021 stoppage of Hosea Burton — Tyson Fury's cousin — that signalled his potential in the pro game.

The 34-year-old, who models himself on Marvin Hagler right down to the white socks with red trim, has since beaten compatriots Rocky Fielding and Shakan Pitters to emerge as one of the U.K.'s best late-bloomers. A pressure fighter who's excellent on the inside, he's got the determination to prove he's the best of South London one-time friends. This is a real pick 'em bout.

Here's everything you need to watch a Buatsi vs Azeez live stream, including options from around the world, plus the tale of the tape and expected odds.

Watch Buatsi vs Azeez from abroad

How to watch Buatsi vs Azeez wherever you are

A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth — or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

For instance, an American who's currently in the U.K. could watch a Buatsi vs Azeez live stream on Peacock, even though they're not in the U.S..

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices, and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.


Safety, speed, and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, such as Peacock, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Peacock, as you usually would back in the States, and watch a Buatsi vs Azeez live stream.

How to watch a Buatsi vs Azeez live stream in the U.K.

Sky Sports is broadcasting a Buatsi vs Azeez live stream in the U.K., so if you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £18 per month to add those channels. The fight will be shown on Sky Sports Main Event.

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky subscription, you could also consider its Now streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £11.98 or month-long access for £34.99.
