Fury vs Chisora 3 PPV faces backlash from UK fans

Tyson Fury confirming a third fight with Derek Chisora on Thursday came with a massive backlash against the Pay Per View fight.

Fury’s team said they ran out of options as UK fans took to social media in their thousands to argue against what is labeled a “pointless” event.

World Boxing News went through all the major social media accounts of Frank Warren, Tyson Fury, and BT Sport.

All three had hundreds of responses within minutes of the Fury vs Chisora 3 confirmation.

A massive portion of the comments was negative, with some staunch boxing fans vowing to boycott the PPV.

“Should be on Cartoon Network,” said one commenter.

Another stated: “What a rubbish fight. Be like watching paint dry.”

A third added: “I’m a big fury fan, but no one wants to see this again.”

They were only the responses to the Warren post. Fury’s account saw a similar outcry.

“Can’t wait for this, Tyson, Just like I can’t wait for when England plays Estonia in a friendly.”

“This will be one of the worst-selling fights in British history [tickets and PPV].”

“Awful. If fans want top-level fights and not con jobs, they should boycott the fight. I won’t be getting this and fighting a 38-year-old fighter with twelve losses who you have already beaten twice.

“No thanks. Respect Chisora as a fighter, but this fight has already been done twice with the same result.”

Tyson Fury missed a trick

Many say Fury has missed a trick in not allowing BT Sport to broadcast it off the paid platform.

They should have been the first port of call as a thank you to the British fans who put up with the Anthony Joshua promises only to see the showdown collapse again.

If the “Gypsy King” is essentially going to have a warm-up for Oleksandr Usyk, he should at least be transparent about that fact. And not try to sell the fight as a competitive Pay Per View headliner.

In 22 rounds against Chisora, you’d be hard-pressed to find a round Fury lost convincingly.

Nonetheless, here we are, and the fans are the ones who will suffer.
