Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou is fast approaching as they get ready to square off in one of the most talked about fights of 2023. The hype train is rolling, as an official promo video was released days ago.

With social media buzzing, the cost for the PPV card was revealed on Tuesday, with Fury vs Ngannou priced at $79.99 and broadcast on ESPN+ and other traditional PPV providers.
This will be Fury’s return to the ring following his thorough defeat of Derek Chisora via a 10th round TKO last December. Ngannou, of course, will be making his professional boxing debut. Though this fight will be a 10-roung professional bout, Fury’s WBC heavyweight title will not be on the line.
Earlier this year, Ngannou left the UFC following the completion of his contract and signed with the PFL, enabling him the freedom to also box professionally.

Honestly wouldn’t pay a penny cause don’t want to encourage this type of thing when there’s contenders to fight.
