Dillian Whyte's upcoming fight against Oscar Rivas will be shown on DAZN after all.
The streaming platform announced that not only will subscribers in the United States will be able to watch the heavyweight clash live on July 20, but also subscribers from all over the world. This means people in Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Japan and Brazil, where DAZN is available, can watch the entire card as well.
This is the first time both Whyte and Rivas fight on the streaming service. Whyte has fought since DAZN launched last year, but his December 2018 fight against Derek Chisora actually landed on Showtime and not on DAZN. The winner between Whyte and Rivas would be ranked No. 1 by the WBC in its heavyweight rankings. Rivas is coming off a big 12th round stoppage win over former title challenger Bryant Jennings back in January.
As mentioned, the entire seven-fight card will be streamed starting at 1 p.m. ET. The card features the likes of Lawrence Okolie, Dave Allen, David Price, Richard Riakporhe and Chisora in action.
