Lee McGregor, the hometown hero, is all set to take on the dangerous Mexican fighter, Erik Robles, on Friday night for the vacant IBO world super bantamweight title. If you’re wondering how to tune into this potential boxing spectacle, we’ve got you covered.
The big fight night at Edinburgh’s Meadowbank Sports Centre will be broadcast live and free-to-air on Channel 5 from 10 pm, for fans in the UK and Ireland. The undercard will also be accessible on the Wasserman Boxing YouTube channel from 7 pm.
For international fans outside the UK and Ireland, the entire event, live from the Scottish capital, will be available on DAZN starting at 7 pm.
McGregor, also known as ‘Lightning’, is set to start the second chapter of his professional career in the boxing ring with a shot at the IBO world belt. Already a British, Commonwealth, and European bantamweight champion with only 10 fights under his belt, McGregor is now looking to further his legacy with Wasserman Boxing. He’ll be buoyed by a full-capacity crowd, in what he refers to as a “life-changing” event.
Backing McGregor’s grand homecoming is a loaded fight card, featuring the UK’s most menacing heavyweight prospect, Matty Harris, and the up-and-coming super lightweight star, Harlem Eubank. The line-up also includes a bout between Sultan Zaurbek and former European champion John Cater. Featherweight contender Isaac Lowe returns to the ring aiming for a comeback, and heavyweight hitter Kash Ali aims to make a statement. Additionally, Great Britain amateur Ben Andrews is slated to make his professional debut on the night.

With big fights on the horizon, there’s no room for error, so I need to be at my best in Edinburgh on July 21. Training has gone extremely well, and I plan to make a statement in front of the Scottish fans.”
