You dont say which O/S you are using but I assume Windows (?)
If I can't download directly from streaming source using Streamlink, youtube-dl or ffmpeg, there are 2 options I use for screen-capturing boxing and other sports for many years, both free. BUT, neither are childsplay to use. And one requires some knowledge of the CLI (Command line interface).
OBS has a GUI but is far from easy to grasp for a beginner, persevere and you'll get there. Thankfully for the beginner there are hundreds of Youtube tutorials on how to use OBS, mostly from gamers but the methods can be translated over.

Most people are not aware that Ffmpeg has a built in feature for recording the Desktop - full or partial - with one or 2 different methods, again not simplicity if you're not used to the CLI. Grab ffmpeg, ffplay and ffprobe and put all the exe's into one folder and make a permanent path to the folder in the Windows Environment table so you can 'call' them from anywhere and not have to quote the path each time you use them.
