Last week we reached out to CBC to try and find out whether or not there would be any chance of a live stream for international fans wanting to view the bout. Since then we have received feedback from the the broadcaster, who have agreed to send us a link to embed of the fight, live.
The feed will, to our understanding, feature the main event only and will be the live broadcast. The broadcaster may choose to allow the bout to be replayed as well as live streamed, though that's up to them and hasn't been confirmed to us at the moment.
With it being a live broadcast the stream is set to go live at around 15:57 local time, with the broadcast ending at 16:54. The stream will also feature no commentary and will be geo-locked, so only fans outside of Japan will be able to watch it, unfortunately.
We hope to bring you all more news about this stream in the next few days but please, if you have any interest in watching the bout, or know someone who does, then share the good news!
From our point of view we want as many people watching as possible to prove there is an audience for fights like this outside of Japan, and the more the merrier!
