Australia’s Tim Tszyu has earned a title shot against the undisputed super welterweight champion Jermell Charlo, but he’s tired of waiting for the American to be fight-ready. In a bid to remain active, Tszyu will enter the ring with Mexico’s Carlos Ocampo on June 18 (local time) – here’s how to watch Tszyu vs Ocampo from anywhere.
In the US, the fight is available to watch on Showtime via Paramount Plus. For Aussies, you can catch the fight on Kayo via Main Event – and you don’t need to be subscribed to Kayo to order it either. If you’re travelling abroad, you could be blocked from your account, but we’ve also included how to watch a Tszyu vs Ocampo free live stream from anywhere with a VPN.
The 28-year-old Tszyu is currently 22-0, taking 16 wins by knockout. The WBO has ordered Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs) to defend his title against Tszyu before October this year, a fight which has been delayed since Christmas 2022 when Charlo broke his left hand. Not one to sit back and wait, Tszyu will now defend his interim WBO super welterweight title against the 27-year-old Ocampo (35-2, 23 KOs).
Ocampo will step into the ring with an impressive record of his own. He charted a path similar to Tszyu, winning his first 22 professional fights. He had his first loss against Errol Spence Jr. in 2018, after which he claimed another 12 consecutive wins. After that winning streak, he lost to Sebastian Fundora in 2022. Tszyu is his first fight since.
Tszyu vs Ocampo will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Queensland, Australia. It’s a huge risk for Tszyu, will it pay off? Follow our guide below to watch a Tszyu vs Ocampo live stream online from anywhere.
