The showdown will be available on ESPN+ pay-per-view. Boxing fans will reportedly need to buy an ESPN+ subscription, which is $6.99 per month, and then purchase the event on pay-per-view. A package deal of ESPN+, Hulu and Disney is an option, which is $14 a month.
Unlike most fights, this will not be a joint pay-per-view with Fox.
On Wednesday, Bob Arum, Crawford’s promoter, hinted that the fight will cost the industry standard $70-$80.
Both boxers will earn portions of the PPV revenue from the 12-round, 147-pound championship fight.
A purse bid was avoided Tuesday by Top Rank and PBC striking a deal after weeks of negotiations.
