BOXING fans have been left in disbelief by the PPV price of Jake Paul’s bout with Anderson Silva.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer will lock horns with MMA legend Silva this weekend in Phoenix, Arizona.
It marks Paul’s first fight since his second victory over Tyron Woodley all the way back in December last year.
Ring-walks for the main event will take place at around 4am UK time on Sunday – meaning only the most ardent fans will be up to watch it.
And not only do British fans face a desperately early start, but they’ll have to shell out Â£17.99 to watch it on Fite TV.
Social media users were left flabbergasted by the price and were quick to share their rants.
One tweeted: “Iâll be watching old reruns of Neighbours over this borefest.”
A second claimed: “Surely no one in the UK is buying that.”
And a third wrote: “If they give me Â£17.99 I wouldn’t watch that.”
While a fourth joked: “Iâm shaving (that) night, thatâs more interesting.”

ð¥ Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva: Ring walk time, live stream, TV channel, undercard for toughest test
Others have taken issue with the lack of depth on the undercard.
The headline fight before Paul vs Silva will see ex-UFC middleweight Uriah Hall take on former NFL star Le’Veon Bell.
One disgruntled Twitter user wrote: “The undercard for this fight looks boring AF !!!”
Another wrote: “Jake and Silva is the only interesting fight on the card no thanks.”
Paul, 25, touched down in Arizona on his private jet on Monday claiming record ticket sales.
He said: “Ladies and gentlemen, we are on the way to Phoenix for fight week.
“Big news – we have sold the most tickets ever for a boxing event at this arena.
“They’re going fast. There is only a couple of tickets left. Click the link. Phoenix, we’re coming. Let’s go.”
