The biggest win of Ellis Zorro's career came last time out in May's ruthless stoppage of Hosea Burton, whose cousin is WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. The 31-year-old carries serious power and, as he showed in a barnstorming points win over Dec Spellman two fights ago, absolutely loves an old-fashioned tear-up in the ring. The first defence of his WBO European strap, Zorro will want a stoppage to prove he warrants a big name next.

Luca D'Ortenzi may have lost his IBF international cruiserweight title to Leon Harth in April, but the Italian has real grade just below world level and represents a good test for Zorro's power and movement. The Gentleman has a solid jab and, having worked with the same trainer for the past decade, knows what his strength and will come with a plan to upset favorite Zorro.

With Willy Hutchinson also on the undercard and an all-British featherweight scrap between Masood Abdulah and Marc Leach, here's everything you need to know to watch the Zorro vs D'Ortenzi live stream, no matter where you are.

How to watch Zorro vs D'Ortenzi 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, someone from the U.K. who's currently in the U.S. could watch Zorro vs D'Ortenzi on Mola TV or TNT Sports even though they're not in Italy or the U.K.. 

VPNs are totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and PureVPN does the trick. It offers decent speeds with a large network and plenty of locations, plus it's great value for money.

No U.S. broadcaster has yet been confirmed to watch the Zorro vs D'Ortenzi live stream, but there's still chance for one of the major outlets to do a last-minute deal, so it's a good idea to keep an eye on your local schedules.

Previous Queensberry shows from the U.K. have been shown via U.S. promoter Top Rank's deal with ESPN Plus Stateside, so we would recommend checking out that schedule first up.

ESPN Plus won't unlock all regular ESPN content, but it will grant you access to thousands of live events, original shows and series that can't be found anywhere else (not even on the standard ESPN service). 

Even better ESPN Plus is available in a bundle with both Hulu and Disney Plus for $12.99 a month with ads. That gets you all of the ESPN Plus events, top Hulu shows, and the Disney Plus library of classic Disney and Star Wars content, including new Star Wars spinoff Ahsoka. You could also pay $19.99 and lose the ads on Hulu and Disney Plus.


ESPN Plus costs $9.99 per month for the basic package, but until October 11 you can save over 15% by signing up for a year for $99.99. That brings access to more boxing, plus the NFL, MLB, NHL, PGA Tour golf, soccer, major tennis and even the UFC if you're happy to add the occasional PPV fee.

If you already use the service but aren't in the U.S. right now, you can use a VPN such PureVPN
