Take a look below: we’ll let you know how to stream Triple G vs Murata, even if you’re currently abroad.
We don’t recommend watching via unlicensed sources. These are often laggy, with poor video quality and stability. While there are usually third-party streams for major boxing events, these are frequently taken down partway through and copyright holders have aggressively targeted viewers in the past. Still, given how easy it is to watch this event legitimately, there’s really no need to resort to unreliable, unofficial streams.

How to watch Gennady Golovkin vs Ryota Murata online on US TV
DAZN is the only network showing Golovkin vs Murata in the US. This service costs $19.99 (GBP £15.22) per month and unfortunately, no longer offers a free trial. However, if you’re interested in boxing, it might be worth keeping, especially as it’s carrying the upcoming Taylor vs Serrano and Lejarraga vs Metcalf fights.
Where else can I watch GGG vs Murata online?
DAZN is streaming this fight live in over 200 countries including the UK, Canada, Australia, Mexico, France, Germany, and Spain. However, there is no free trial anymore and the exact price varies pretty drastically depending on which country you’re in. For instance, British viewers will pay £7.99 GBP ($10.41 USD) per month while those in Canada pay CAD$20 ($16.02).
If you’re in Japan, things are much simpler. In this case, you can watch Golovkin vs Murata on Amazon Prime Video. This would usually cost you ¥500 per month, but Prime comes with a 30-day free trial in Japan. In other words, you can sign up, stream Big Drama in Japan for free, and cancel to avoid being charged.
Who is the favorite: Golovkin or Murata?
Despite both fighters being world champions (not to mention Olympic medallists), Golovkin is a strong favorite here. In fact, at the time of writing, Murata is a +450 underdog. Of course, there have been upsets in boxing before, and he isn’t the WBA Super Champion for nothing.
Still, there is the fact that GGG has significantly more experience, with 43 pro fights under his belt, with 41 victories. He’s previously been named the world’s top pound-for pound boxer too, although at 40 years old that no longer rings true. Clearly, whatever happens, this is going to be one for the history books.
