Teofimo Lopez (19-1, 13 KOs), the former three-belt Lightweight World Champion, has had a rollercoaster of a career so far. In 2020 he beat Vasyl Lomachenko to unify the IBF, WBA and WBO titles, then immediately lost them to George Kambosos Jr. He then rose like a phoenix from the ashes to defeat Josh Taylor in a fight he was a big underdog for, gaining a Super Lightweight title in the process. He then briefly retired. He’s back now to defend his title again Jamaine Ortiz (17-1-1, 8 KOs), a capable fighter with some good wins and a close loss to Lomachenko on his record.

Since this fight is going to be broadcast on the regular ESPN channel as well as ESPN+, there are some sneaky ways to watch it for free. Both Fubo and YouTube TV have access to ESPN, so if you get a Fubo free trial or a YouTube TV free trial, you can catch this matchup without paying a dime. Both services are complete cable replacements, so they’ll cost a pretty penny once the trials are over. If you’re only concerned with sports, ESPN+ might be your best bet. If you want access to over 100 live TV channels, YouTube TV and Fubo are good options.
Watching American sports from a foreign country can be difficult. The simplest option is to get one of the best VPN services, connect to a server in the U.S., then get ESPN+ or one of the free trial services above. We recommend NordVPN as the best VPN in general. That’s because it’s effective, simple, and currently pretty cheap as part of VPN deals.
