Tonight, Mikey Garcia will step into the ring with Jessie Vargas in an attempt to show those doubting him that he's a force to be taken serious in the welterweight division. The fight takes place in Frisco, Texas on Saturday February 29, which is a Leap Day. Both are former champs, and the winner of the match could get a title fight against Pacman, so there's a lot at stake here.
Garcia has a record of 39 and 1, with 30 of the wins being knockouts. Vargas has an equally impressive 29-2-2 record with 11 knockouts to date.
The Undercard event begins at 6 p.m. Eastern, and the Main card is slated to start at 8 p.m. Eastern tomorrow night.
Use a VPN to watch DAZN from anywhere
Unfortunately, you can only access DAZN in a few countries, like the U.S. and Canada, which limits who can actually watch the content. If you live outside of these two regions, don't worry you can still access the content. ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is an easy way to connect to a server in a different country to be able to watch the content. It happens to be our favorite VPN provider for a number of reasons as well.
Getting started is super simple. You just need to sign up for an ExpressVPN plan of your choice (opens in new tab), then select a secure server that's located in the U.S. or Canada, and then log into a DAZN account (opens in new tab) and you're good to go.
In addition to allowing you to watch the fight from anywhere, ExpressVPN offers great speeds, reliable connections, awesome customer service, and more. It's something you'll want to set up now and use for more than just watching this match.
In addition to securing your browsing sessions, a VPN is a great way to spoof yourself to being in a different location. Connecting to a server in the U.S. or Canada will unlock access to DAZN streaming content for you, regardless of your actual location.
