On paper Gennady Golovkin's super-middleweight comeback clash against Steve Rolls in New York should be a routine affair. But following Andy Ruiz Jr's dramatic heavyweight win over Anthony Joshua last weekend, GGG and his camp will be on their guard. Will Rolls cause another upset to shock the boxing world? You're in the right place to see how to get a Golovkin vs Rolls live stream - regardless of where you are in the world.
The showdown between Gennady Golovkin vs Steve Rolls takes place on Saturday, June 8 at New York City's iconic Madison Square Garden.
The duo are set to enter the ring at around 11pm local time - so that's 8pm PT, 1pm Sunday AEST and 4am BST for fight fans in the UK.
Looking to put his devastating points defeat to Saul Alvarez in September last year behind him, Kazakh ring king Gennady Golovkin is on the comeback trail.
Armed with a new trainer and a lucrative six-fight broadcasting deal in the States with DAZN (opens in new tab), tonight's fight will be seen as a stepping stone for GGG to set up a third showdown with the Mexican unified champ Canelo.
Next to nobody is giving 35-year-old Canadian Steve Rolls a chance to defeat the former middleweight world champion, but while he is yet to face anyone of Golovkin's stature, he does at least boast an unbeaten record in his 19 professional fights.
Will the fight put GGG back on track, or can Rolls spring a surprise? Read on to find out how you can watch the fight with our Golovkin vs Rolls live stream guide.

How to watch the Golovkin vs Rolls fight from outside your country
If you want to watch the boxing outside of your country you may find that the content is geo-restricted. That could mean that, despite having access when on home turf, you are blocked while away. Fret not, that can be rectified with the use of a clever piece of software called a VPN - better that than hunting for some dodgy, illegal stream on Reddit.
Once you've downloaded and installed this software you are able to change where you appear to be thanks to some smart IP address bouncing. That not only gets around geo-restricted content but also helps keep your identity more secure when online.
These Virtual Private Networks are thankfully easy to use. Simply select one of our top three best VPN (opens in new tab) picks below (or opt straight for our number one favorite ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)), open it up and pick out your country of choice from the 'choose location' menu, and then start watching as if you were sat back at home. Easy!
1. ExpressVPN: (opens in new tab) the best all-round VPN for streaming, comes with 30-day money back guarantee and 3 months FREE when you sign up for an annual plan
2. NordVPN: (opens in new tab) one of the most affordable choices for streaming and really effective, too
3. IPVanish: (opens in new tab) super secure and able to work on a whopping 10 devices, at the same time
And don't get the impression that this is all VPNS are any good for. They've also become the first line of defence for millions of people against cyber crime and security breaches.

How to live stream Golovkin vs Rolls in the UK
Sorry folks, it looks as though nobody at all is showing the GGG fight in the UK. We guess the second consecutive Canelo defeat really hurt his reputation that much!
If you're desperate to watch and don't want to rely on some dodgy stream on Reddit, then you can always give the VPN route a try (opens in new tab). Log in to a US or Canada server, sign up for DAZN and watch as if you were somewhere across the Atlantic. A word of warning though, this is probably against DAZN's Ts&Cs and you'd need card details of one of those countries to sign up.
