An Anthony Joshua vs. Jermaine Franklin live stream might be the biggest professional heavyweight bout we see for a while. Talks between Fury and Usyk recently collapsed, taking us even further away from the undisputed heavyweight bout boxing fans have craved for years. This might be Joshua’s (24-3-0) last chance to get back on track to any sort of title bout as he’s lost three times since 2019 and surely can’t afford another defeat. Franklin (21-1-0) on the other hand will be looking to shrug off his first-ever defeat against Dillian Whyte four months ago and reclimb the pecking order for a title shot.
Where to watch Joshua vs. Franklin live stream (US)
You can catch a US live stream of Joshua vs. Franklin today live on DAZN. Why not get your money’s worth and tune into the main card from 2 p.m. ET? Or if you’re only here for the main event, ring walks are expected to take place around 5:40 p.m. ET. You’ll need to sign up for a month of DAZN at $19.99 to access the fight, but you’re free to cancel after if you don’t want to continue using the app.

Watch Joshua vs. Franklin from 200+ other countries
It’s nice and simple for most of the world hoping to catch the fight as DAZN is available in over 200 countries. It’s simpler to list the countries that don’t have access – you won’t be able to use DAZN for the fight directly in Greece, Cyprus, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Armenia, and Vietnam. It’s also worth noting that fight fans in Argentina, Chile, and Colombia can’t sign up via a web browser and instead must download the DAZN app from the Google Play Store or Apple App store to sign-up.
What if your country isn’t supported?
If the fight or DAZN streaming service is unavailable in your location (check the website to see), then you’ll need a VPN to select a country where DAZN is available and you can sign up from there. Our preferred option of all the best VPN providers is ExpressVPN, which comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re unsatisfied. Check out the latest deal details below. If you’re looking for something a little cheaper though, both Surfshark and NordVPN are worthy alternatives. If you’re still locked out, try going into an incognito mode on your browser and try a few different US locations until one works.
