Fans Bash Pay-Per-View Price Tag To Watch Tyson Fury Vs. Derek Chisora

Fury will fight Chisora for the third time on December 3.

Pay-per-view prices continue to be a problem for fans. 

And this time, many fans are protesting the price tag of Tyson Fury’s voluntary title defense against old rival Derek Chisora. BT Sport announced the pay-per-view will be a UK record £26.95, which translates to about US $32.51.  

Fans took to social media to express their thoughts – and most of them weren’t positive. 

The outcry follows similar backlash that the Professional Fighters League (PFL) got. Last week, the MMA promotion announced their first ever pay-per-view will cost $49.99, and many fans protested the decision as well. 

Fury has been heavily questioned over his decision of choosing Chisora as an opponent for the third time. 

“It’s history making. I’ll be the first heavyweight champion in history to complete two trilogies. You take the top 15 heavyweights, there are a few foreigners in there who nobody knows about,” Fury previously said.  

“They might have undefeated records, but when I fight those foreigners nobody’s interested anyway. You’re better off with somebody who you know is a household name, who people can relate to and can support and sing ‘Oh, Derek Chisora’.” 

Fury bested Chisora in 2011 to a 12-round unanimous decision. In 2014, Fury stepped on the gas and forced a stoppage in the 10th round. 

Fury was supposed to fight either Anthony Joshua or unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, but both of those were put on the backburner. 

Fury and Chisora will meet on December 3 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
