Fans braced for Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou PPV price rise

Fans waiting for the Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou PPV price to be revealed are bracing themselves for a possible rise.

Previously, BT Sport Box Office had charged between $25 [£19.95] and $35 [£26.95] for the privilege of watching Fury in action.

However, with the crossover of Ngannou on Saturday 28th, October, it’s believed that the WBC heavyweight champion could command a more significant fee.

Fury faces the former UFC heavyweight champion exclusively live on the TNT Sports Box Office network. Therefore, a top price of $40 [£29.95] is since being considered.

The fight itself takes place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It will be Fury’s first appearance in the ring since defending his world heavyweight title against Derek Chisora in 2022.

UK fans of Fury are on board with the fight. However, some media and other purists believe Fury is simply going through a money-making exercise with zero risk to his legacy.

TNT is labeling the fight “highly anticipated” despite the grumbles. But there will be more if the Pay Per View price comes out higher than the previous highest Fury has laid out.

Fury vs Ngannou is part of Riyadh Season, the annual entertainment and sports festival.

Current WBC heavyweight belt holder Fury steps into the ring with the WBC title he’s held since 2020. His opponent, Ngannou, will make his boxing debut after trading the octagon for the ring.


Fury will fight for the first time since he retained his title against Derek Chisora in front of 60,000 spectators at London Stadium in December 2022.

Coming out of retirement, The Gypsy King gave a dominant performance, winning by TKO in the 10th Round. Fury remains undefeated with a career spanning almost 14 years, having fought 34 times.

Ngannou left the UFC in January 2023 as the reigning heavyweight champion. His final fight saw him defeat Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 unanimously.

He added to his tally of 17 wins and only three losses during his ten-year career.

In this transition from MMA, the Cameroonian-French fighter will first appear on a boxing card in Riyadh.

Ngannou will rely on his experience in the octagon to put him in contention. The former UFC fighter holds the record for the ‘World’s h’World’sunch’ and has owned it since 2018.

Fury v Ngannou can be watched in the UK & Ireland through BT, Virgin Media TV, Sky, or online via the web or the TNT Sports Box Office App. You need not be a TNT Sports subscriber to buy this event.
