When two friends become opponents in the ring, we’re guaranteed to see some sparks. That’s what’s happening this weekend when Joshua Buatsi and Dan Azeez hop in the ring and duke it out for some regional European titles. This match has been hyped up for a long time in England. Buatsi (17-0, 13 KOs) and Azeez (20-0, 13 KOs) have been sparring partners for years, so they know each other’s styles well. But all the sparring sessions have just been warm ups. This weekend, someone’s undefeated record has to go.
The full card starts at 2:00 p.m. ET today, February 3, and the only way to watch it in the U.S. is on Peacock. Keep reading for everything you need to know to watch boxing this weekend.

Peacock recently teamed up with the English boxing promoter Boxxer, and will now broadcast all of their fight cards in the U.S. This is good news for fight fans who have been jumping through hoops to watch Sky Sports broadcasts in the U.S. This is not a PPV event, so all you need is a standard Peacock subscription. Plans start at $6 per month. If you’re a student, you can have that price dropped to just $2 per month. Unfortunately there is no Peacock free trial or free tier anymore.
If you’re in the U.K., this match is only available on Sky Sports. If you’re anywhere else in the world, streaming it might be difficult. Thankfully you can use one of the best VPNs to convince your computer you’re in the U.S. and stream it through Peacock. We recommend NordVPN, as it’s efficient, simple, and currently on sale as part of VPN deals.
