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.

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.
