Where is it? The glitz and glamour of the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada

Terence Crawford has been the dominant force at lightweight and light welterweight divisions for a good four years now. With his 32 wins from 32 bouts, the American is now stepping up to be the main man among the welterweights, and he's the hot favorite.

But Aussie Jeff Horn is the reigning WBO champion and he won't be giving it up easily. "The Hornet", remember, was the vanquisher of the legendary Manny Pacquiao last summer. He may have missed this weekend's first weigh in - an act of sabotage, he called it - but there's little doubt that he'll be ready for the Crawford challenge at the MGM Grand.

To ensure you can see the whole thing in real time so you don't miss any of the action, we've put together this guide to help you watch a Crawford vs Horn live stream - it's actually possible to do so for free in certain regions. As with most boxing, it's not always available in every country so you may find a VPN is the best way to stream the fight, which you'll find out all about below.

How to watch Crawford vs Horn for FREE: US stream

Only launched a couple of months ago, the new ESPN+ streaming service has the rights to show the Crawford vs Horn fight. And it's really cheap, costing only $4.99 per month.

But if you've never used it before, it can be even cheaper - absolutely free in actual fact. That's because you can currently take advantage of a 7-day free trial to the service.

If you already have ESPN+ but are outside the US, then you'll find that your rights will be restricted from watching. To enable you to watch outside the territory, your best bet is to get hold of a VPN and then log in to a US location.

If that's a bit rich for your blood, you could always try experimenting with a VPN to watch this stream outside of Australia via another country's broadcast coverage.
