Wladimir Klitschko returns today in Mannheim, Germany, facing Italy's Francesco Pianeta, with the WBA, WBO, and IBF world heavyweight titles on the line. As ever, Wladimir (59-3, 50 KO) is the big favorite to win, with Pianeta considered a fringe contender at best, and simply the most desirable available opponent.

Here's how you can watch the fight today in the US, UK, or Germany:

TV channel: Epix (US) / ESPN (UK) / RTL (Germany) / Russia TV 2

Fight time: 4:30 pm EDT

Venue: SAP-Arena, Mannehim, Germany

Live stream: US viewers can stream the fight at on a free trial.

Bad Left hook will have live coverage this afternoon of Klitschko vs Pianeta, which will lead pretty much directly into our Mayweather vs Guerrero live coverage, which will begin sometime around 7:00 pm EDT with Showtime's "May Day Live" broadcast, featuring undercard bouts and fighter interviews, and then continue at 9:00 pm EDT with the four pay-per-view bouts.
