The long-awaited rematch fight between David Haye and Tony Bellew is almost here. The London O2 arena will be hosting the David Haye vs Tony Bellew Heavyweight Fight on May 5th.
These two heavyweights last clashed in March last year which left David Haye with an injured Achilles and Bellew with a broken arm. After 11 rounds of fighting, Haye’s corner threw in the towel after his injury left him defenseless.
Both heavyweights have impressive records, and neither looks interested in giving away an easy fight to their opponent. The grudge match will be wild – especially after David Haye admitted that he would rather retire than lose again to Tony Bellew.
David Haye is more determined than ever to win this, not wanting to ruin his impressive comeback form. A very confident Tony Bellew recently told the press that his plans for 2018 were to knock out David Haye and Tyson Fury and end both their careers.
Both boxers are extremely strong, but David Haye has a lot more to lose and should be the favorite for the Fight. The Fight is set for May 5th at 10 PM GMT, and if you’re interested in paying for it, the Fight is available on Sky Box Office.
Why you Need a VPN
If you’re not that keen on paying for expensive cable (or even more expensive pay-per-view), then you’re probably most interested in how you can watch the match online for free. Before I get into that though, let’s cover what you need to have first.
If you regularly stream videos online, then you probably like a fast, uninterrupted connection. Having a VPN will increase transfer speeds. You see, ISPs periodically throttle the connections for people streaming content online, but with a VPN, they don’t know that you’re doing this!
ISPs have the power to monitor the data being transmitted over a link, and they usually slow down (throttle) a streaming connection for bandwidth reasons. By protecting your information from potential snooping by the government and ISPs, you can stream content without legal consequences.
Another advantage to a VPN is that it can also give you access to websites that are restricted or barred based on your location. VPNs enable you to mask your IP address and make it appear as if you’re in a different location entirely!
Shellfire VPN is one of the best VPN services owing to its competitive pricing and high-levels of security. Shellfire VPN has servers all over the world helping bypass those pesky geographic restrictions, and they offer something that no other VPN provider has – the Shellfire Box.
The Shellfire Box is really innovative and new. This standalone device (the size of a box of matches) connects directly to your internet router and gives your whole home a VPN connection. This is quick and easy way of providing VPN access to devices that simply would otherwise not have that capability.
Watching the Bout with Kodi
Kodi is one of the best tools online for viewing live and catch-up content. However, Kodi’s real strength is in the add-ons it has available. These help expand its capabilities dramatically and truly make it outstanding.
SportsDevil is one of the most popular Kodi add-ons for live sports content. It is well known for its wide range of sports content and working links for streaming major events. Such as UFC, NFL, NBA, Cricket, EPL and wrestling and boxing matches. Check out our detailed install guide to get started with SportsDevil.
The channel list for Sportsdevil includes Sky Sports Premier, BT Sports, Box Nation, NBA Network, MLB Network. It also includ sports highlights and playback in 720p HD. It is now available for the latest versions of Kodi so is definitely worth a look.
cCloud is more of a generic add-on than SportsDevil and is not one that is purely focused on sports. That being said, it has so many streams and links available that you’re almost guaranteed to find something that you like on it! Check out our install guide for cCloud to get started. One key point with cCloud – make sure that you save your favorites. There are so many links available that you might not be able to find them again!
One of the newer add-ons that I’ve tested, I’ve been quite pleased with Vortex so far. It’s got lots of different categories available and is really easy to use. Like all of the other add-ons on this list, Vortex doesn’t host the content itself. It’s function is purely helping you find what’s interesting out there, and I’m happy to say that I’ve always managed to find what I’m interested in! Check out our install guide for Vortex to get it setup on your Kodi.
Watching the Fight on an Android Box
If you have an Android box, you can definitely install Kodi on it (check out our post on installing Kodi on a Firestick) and then use the add-ons I’ve already recommended, however the advantage to an Android box is that you can install other apps outside of Kodi. This really does give you the best of both worlds!
If you’re a fan of live sports, then this is an app that you need to check out. When I first reviewed it only a few short months ago, it had 500 channels available. Testing it again more recently, the list of channels has exceeded 700, and it shows no signs of stopping! With channels sorted by category and language, you’re going to find lots on Live NetTV to keep you busy! Check out our install guide to get started.
Hopefully, these add-on’s and apps will give you some options when it comes to watching the match? Let us know in the comments how you got on, and give us some suggestions for other apps and add-ons that might be useful.
