So, far we’ve yet to hear about any services streaming the fight for free. Though we are sure that they are pirates who will try to attract fight fans in exchange for a few personal details. However, our advice is to stay away from them because not only will they steal your identity but you’ll also be charged with piracy which means fines and jail time. The above-mentioned services are not free, but they are certainly legal in the US!
