Fury vs Chisora 3 tickets went on sale on Friday as skepticism reigned over the fight from UK fans. Despite the mixed reviews for the fight, promoter Frank Warren claims the event has sold over 50,000 tickets.
World Boxing News reported that many social media comments surrounding the event are negative. However, organizers expect a sellout crowd of 60,000 plus to pack inside a UK football stadium in the winter.
The reaction to Tyson Fury defending his WBC heavyweight title against a man he’s roundly beaten twice is up and down, to say the least.
The noon touch paper got lit on Friday, and promoters say there’s been a boom.
Fury vs Chisora tickets
Nonetheless, Warren’s company Queensberry Promotions released a information as tickets opened up for sale. That’s the fight Fury wants, and QP will give the man what he wants.
They said: “In what will be a sensational heavyweight doubleheader, the WBC and lineal world champion Tyson Fury will defend his crown against long-standing rival Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, December 3.
“It’s a night where WBA world champion Daniel Dubois will make the first defense of his [secondary world title] belt against South African southpaw Kevin Lerena.
“The event is exclusively on BT Sport Box Office (UK & RoI) and ESPN+ (US).”
Adding an extra selling point, as they did with Anthony Joshua at the press conference announcement, it’s hoped support will be improved by the notion Fury vs Usyk is being promised.
“Fury intends on fighting Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed world championship in the first part of 2023. He will again perform on UK soil.
“The event follows his April knockout of mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.”
Looking at those tickets already sold for Fury vs Chisora 3, some sections are now available on resale sites.
Time will tell if those tickets did sell to genuine fans and whether over 50,000 fans will greet Fury.
Pay Per View sales will accompany another Fury event on BT Sport Box Office.
