Usyk is one of the top pound-for-pound fighters, but Dubois is taller, younger, and packs legendary power. Usyk is undefeated but, against a heavyweight like this, one punch is all it takes. The undercard fights are done. The main event is underway.

Following a pair of convincing victories over Anthony Joshua, Usyk has spent much of the past year trying to pin down Tyson Fury, to no avail. With the WBC title-holder seemingly running scared, the Ukrainian southpaw has instead turned his attentions to a Brit on the rise, the 25-year-old Dubois.

The Londoner has notched four knockouts on the bounce since suffering the only defeat of his professional career at the hands of Joe Joyce three years ago, and his hard-fought victory over Kevin Lerena in December showed that he's got more to his game than punching power. Dubois picked himself up off the canvas three times in the first round alone to score a third-round technical knockout, and that resolve will serve him well while he's in the ring with Usyk.

Thanks partly to his victories over Joshua, the 36-year-old is now widely considered the best heavyweight on the planet, so expect fireworks from the first bell. Here's everything you need to know in order to watch the Usyk vs Dubois live stream, no matter where you are.

How to watch Usyk vs Dubois live streams from anywhere

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, a Canadian who's currently in the U.K. could watch Usyk vs Dubois on TSN Plus even though they're not in Canada. 

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

ExpressVPN

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 Canadian service, such as TSN Plus, you'd select Canada from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to TSN Plus, as you usually would back in Canada, and watch the cheap Usyk vs Dubois live stream without paying a PPV.
