Terence Crawford vs Amir Khan - when and where

What date is it? It's fight night! Crawford vs Khan is happening today - Saturday, April 20.

What time is it? The fight is expected to start no earlier than 11pm ET, 8pm PT. So that's an early morning/late night 4am BST in the UK.

Where is it? The boxing is taking place at New York's famous Madison Square Garden.

Amir Khan (33-4, 20 KOs) was out of the ring for over a year before returning to win back-to-back fights against Phil Lo Greco and Samuel Vargas.. But Terence Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs) is a new level for Khan to take on as he's not only a three-weight world champion but is highly regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers out there right now.

While 32-year-old Khan may be seen as at the end of his career by some, the former unified junior welterweight champion still packs a punch and could give Crawford some real problems in the ring. 

Sounds like an intriguing contest, doesn't it? Well the good news is that it's being broadcast live around the world, and we're here to help you discover the best places to watch a Crawford vs Khan live stream.

Live stream Crawford vs Khan from outside your country

If you've been looking forward to this fight and already know where to watch, your plans may be scuppered if you're out of the country when it's on. That's because broadcasters geo-block their coverage if you try to watch from abroad.

But there's a clever workaround for this, which is perfectly legal (assuming the broadcaster's Ts&Cs allow it) and it involves using a piece of software called a VPN - better that than trying to get some dodgy stream from Reddit.

How to watch Khan vs Crawford in Pakistan

We've looked and we've looked (and we've looked) and we can't find any news of a broadcaster in Pakistan showing Amir Khan in all his mean, lean glory this Saturday. Not great if you're there and were hoping to see him fight on Sunday morning. If that changes, we'll be sure to let you know.

The only alternative is to use one of our best VPNs as described above, set your location to a country on this page that is broadcasting and go from there. But do bear in mind that most paid streaming services do require a credit card based in the country the service is from.
