Tyson Fury PPV price increases for Derek Chisora trilogy over Deontay Wilder and Dillian Whyte fights, matches Anthony Joshua rematch with Oleksandr Usyk
The Pay-Per-View price for Tyson Fury’s upcoming trilogy fight with Derek Chisora has been revealed.
While the fight will be live and free on talkSPORT on December 3, BT Sport Box Office will broadcast the UK TV broadcast to a new high for their platform at £26.95 – more than any previous Fury fight , including recent victories over Deontay Wilder and Dillian Whyte.
Recently on Sky Sports, Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk set the record as it was raised to £26.95.
Now BT have chosen to match that and are facing a backlash following many disappointed boxing fans.
One fan on social media reacted, “I usually buy PPVs, but I will definitely be streaming this fight.”
While another simply added: ‘Shame’.
A third said: “That’s just not how supply and demand work.”
The comments continued to pour in as one angry fan added, “Everyone involved should be ashamed. It’s a shame.
Another wrote: “F*** right now.”
A longer response read: “What the f***. And Tyson Fury said he wanted EVERYONE to be able to watch Fury vs Joshua for free. Fury went from the elite , a fan-favorite, to an embarrassing waste of time within months of SMH.”
Not so long ago, the standard PPV price for major boxing events in the UK was £19.95.
Sky bumped it up to £24.95 for Joshua’s rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr in 2019 and then BT followed at that price for the Fury vs Wilder rematch in early 2020.
The heavyweights have both had two more fights at £24.95 but will now apparently run at a price of £26.95 going forward.
It remains to be seen what AJ’s next PPV will cost, given that it will be with his new broadcaster DAZN.
