TRY DAZN

Though the Demetrius Andrade vs. Luke Keeler middleweight title showdown is officially the main event of Thursday night’s card that you can live stream on DAZN, it doesn’t really feel like it.

The Jake Paul vs. AnEsonGib co-main event has soaked up much of the attention this week—which is probably a punch to the gut for a world-class boxer like Andrade, who has worked all of his life to get to this point—and there are two other title fights on the undercard that are more interesting than Andrade vs. Keeler and probably will offer more excitement.

In reality, Andrade is the most-avoided 160-pounder on the planet and, for the most part, he’s been forced to take fights that aren’t as financially lucrative or as attention-grabbing as he deserves. Keeler might be a solid boxer, but he hasn’t shown that he’s on Andrade’s level. Still, Andrade is worth the watch.

“Andrade is the best 160-pounder in the world,” Eddie Hearn, Andrade’s promoter, said in a press release. “Everyone is saying it. Everyone comes in with a plan but they can’t even [implement it] with rounds, minutes or even seconds.”

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Andrade vs. Keeler without cable.

What is DAZN?

The only legal way to watch Andrade vs. Keeler in the U.S. is on DAZN. Since September 2018, the streaming service has shown some of the most important boxing matches in the sport. DAZN showcased Canelo Alvarez knocking out Sergey Kovalev, and it featured Andy Ruiz upsetting Anthony Joshua for the heavyweight championship in June 2019 and Joshua getting his revenge in December. Gennadiy Golovkin has fought twice on the service since June, and the exciting World Boxing Super Series tournament has been a mainstay. And don’t forget about KSI’s upset victory against Logan Paul in a YouTube boxing extravaganza in November.

DAZN costs $19.99 per month or $99.99 for the entire year, but for fight fans, it’s been an awesome value. It streams more than 100 fight cards per year—including a large number of MMA cards with Bellator—and you can watch some of the best boxers in the world (like Alvarez, Joshua, and Golovkin) and some of the potential rising stars (like Vergil Ortiz Jr. and Devin Haney). DAZN says it’s doing its best to try to kill the longtime boxing PPV model, but another perk of a subscription is getting to watch fighters like Andrade on a regular basis—that should get your blood pounding as the fists begin flying.

DAZN works with RokuApple TVAmazon Fire Stick and Fire TVXbox One, PlayStation 4, and both iOS and Android phones. All you need to do is download the DAZN app and log in with your subscription credentials. You can also stream via computer browsers Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Internet Explorer, and Opera.

Andrade vs. Keeler: Why it matters

Andrade’s team has tried its best to negotiate deals with high-profile middleweights like Canelo Alvarez, Gennadiy Golovkin, and Jermall Charlo—the kinds of fights that could make Andrade plenty of money and the kind of fights that, if Andrade triumphs, could make him a true star. But nobody in that trio has shown much, if any, interest.

“The other champions … [Golovkin], Canelo … they’re looking for the easiest pay and not the toughest fights,” Andrade (28-0, 17 knockouts) said, via Business Insider. “That’s just the way the game is right now. They don’t want to risk everything, but sooner or later they have to fight the best, in their prime, not when they’re 40 years old.

On Thursday, the opponent happens to be Keeler (17-2-1, 5 KOs). Though he unimpressively scored a draw in 2018 against an opponent who had a putrid 7-29-5 record, Keeler is coming off the best victory of his career, a decision win against Luis Arias last August. He plans to continue that momentum vs. Andrade.

“There’s a tale of two halves with my career,” Keeler said at a press conference this week. “People think this is an easy touch for Andrade. He stepped up to middleweight and he hasn’t been performing. He hasn’t showed me how great he is like he said he is. I labeled him delusional and I think it got under his skin. I am 32 but I am fresh. I think his pro career has slowed him down. He’s not entertaining, he’s struggling. He talks like he is the greatest but he isn’t.”

It’s hard to know if that’s true because Andrade simply hasn’t been challenged in a meaningful way. The oddsmakers say he won’t be on Thursday either. As of this writing, Andrade is a -20000 favorite, meaning you’d have to wager $20,000 to win a paltry $100.

“I didn’t know who [Keeler] was before they brought him up to me,” Andrade told Boxing Scene. “That’s not saying that he’s not a tough fighter or a worthy fighter. I just haven’t heard of him because those type of people aren’t on my radar.”
