American boxing fans were furious after the prices for the broadcast of the fight between Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion were announced. The show will take place in Riyadh on February 17 and will traditionally be shown in the United States on pay-per-view.

Fans will have to pay $70 to watch the historic confrontation, Mirror writes. This is the price tag set by the streaming platform DAZN and the portal PPV.com, which caused outrage among Americans. They noted that the fight will take place at an inconvenient time for them, and their compatriots will not participate in it.

"Why is everything so expensive in the US? It's ridiculous. It's not even in prime time in the US, there are no Americans in the main event. It's just crazy.", "I was hoping it would be cheaper, but I'll buy it anyway. Go Usyk," "The fact that it's going to be about 20 pounds ($25) for us in the UK is just crazy," "It always amazes me that they charge twice as much as we pay in England," the publication quotes fans' comments.
