A host of former AFL greats including Dane Swan, Kane Cornes and Anthony Rocca will step into the ring as the AFL’s Gather Round kicks off with ‘The Gathering’ in Adelaide on Wednesday night.

The card will begin at 7pm (AEDT), with nine fights scheduled for the night.

This is The Roar‘s guide to live streaming the event in Australia.

Held at Adelaide 36ers Arena in Adelaide, the card is intended as a lead-in to the AFL’s ‘Gather Round’, which sees all nine matches played in the city as part of a deal with the South Australian government.

The nine-fight card will see Swan take on former Collingwood premiership teammate Dale Thomas, while controversial media personality Cornes faces The Sunday Footy Show co-host and former Richmond and Western Bulldogs forward Nathan Brown.

Former Brisbane and Carlton hard nut Mitch Robinson battles one-time Tiger Kayne Pettifer, while the first AFL-flavoured fight of the night is Collingwood icon Anthony Rocca up against two-time North Melbourne premiership ruckman Corey McKernan.

The celebrity fights will be interspersed between actual professional boxing bouts, with the main event seeing Jamal Herring take on Jackson England for the WBO Global Super Featherweight title.
