Frank Warren defended the price of the Fury Vs Chisora 3 pay-per-view match this past Saturday night, claiming that the entire card offers good value to punters.
Queensberry boss was grilled by Simon Jordan on talk sportswhere he was quick to remind the public that they were under no obligation to buy tickets or buy pay-per-view at £26.95.
“Valid, there was a big fight on the bottom card between Daniel Dubois [and Keven Lerena] – he defended his title. Have a really good European title fight [between] two world ranked boxers there [Denys Barinchyk and Yvan Mendy] and there are some good young men.
At the end of the day, no one is holding hands to buy tickets.”
😡 Simon: “You fight and charge the highest, that’s not right.”
🎟️ Frank: “Well, no one is forcing anyone to buy tickets, Simon!”
🤦♂️ Simon: “Everyone is going to see Fury lick the stamps right now!”

The bout itself went as many expected, with Fury dominating situations more or less from start to finish and Chisora suffering constant penalties before referee Victor Loughlin benevolently stopped the contest at tenth inning.
Boos were heard throughout the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, perhaps annoyed by fans as the uncompetitive match – originally to Fury’s WBC world title – took place.
Negotiations with unified world champion Oleksandr Usyk for an undisputed match in 2023 are said to be progressing well, and the Ukrainian took on Fury after the London match when ‘ Gypsy king’ shouted obscenities at him.
British heavyweight Joe Joyce then knocked out Fury and Usyk, causing viewers to witness the three men staring at each other strangely. Fury said Joyce will be the man receiving the call to fight if an appointment with Usyk cannot be determined in the first half of 2023.
