Three illegal live streams of tonight's boxing bout have already been shut down by Sky TV.

The company says it's got a team that's "always watching" and will immediately cancel the Sky subscription of anyone caught live streaming the fights.

Joseph Parker's on the card to fight Solomon Haumono later tonight.

LIVE: Fight night - Parker v Haumono

There was massive backlash from Sky after thousands of people were able to watch Joseph Parker defeat Carlos Takam for free on a Facebook live stream two months ago.

A Sky spokesperson says they don't have anyone extra in place to catch those streaming tonight's fight - but they have a monitoring team that's watching at all times, and they will catch anyone illegally sharing it.
