Yep, it's on the DAZN starting early Sunday morning (NZ time).  Decent undercard, which I'll post on Friday.  
Joshua: McKean is phenomenal

Aj Mckean

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

IBF #10, WBO #11 heavyweight Demsey McKean (19-0, 12 KOs) has impressed IBF, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. McKean was a key sparring partner for Joshua in preparation for his showdown with Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday in London.

Joshua told the press that McKean is “a phenomenal heavyweight” and has been “a blessing.”

“He (McKean) is a great sparring partner,” Joshua said. “He is six-foot-something, big guy, southpaw – we don’t really get too many of those. He has great potential.”

McKean and Usyk are both southpaws. “No one is going to be exactly the same as the guy I am fighting but they will throw certain punches,” said Joshua. Anyone who throws punches at me is doing me a favor. Demsey is just throwing punches at me.

“Some of them are hitting me, some of them aren’t hitting me. When they do hit me, I think to myself: ‘How do I stop them from hitting me?’ He’s just doing me a big favor of making me think how not to get hit against a southpaw.

“My brain is wiring to think: ‘Oh s***, there’s that backhand coming, boom’. Two weeks later ‘Oh s***, there’s that backhand coming, slip, bang’. It’s a blessing to have him in training.”

Demsey McKean is managed and promoted by Angelo DiCarlo in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

For you kiwi, FREE. Enjoy.
what time you reckon it will be on over here? I'm est AJ fight about 9am?
Sounds about right. I think it starts around 6AM or so. So 9AM or later sounds about right. They don't have many undercard fights scheduled, about 5 or so.
