Tyson Fury’s promoter warns boxing fans to expect PPV price hike for massive Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk fights

FRANK WARREN has warned boxing fans to expect a pay-per-view hike for Tyson Fury’s fights against Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk.

Fury is in talks to face Usyk in the heavyweight division’s first four-belt unification.

And such is the magnitude of the undisputed decider, Warren admitted an increase from the £27.95 price is expected, as would be the case against AJ.

He said on talkSPORT:“If they [the broadcaster] put up some sort of guarantees, then they’re looking to recover their guarantees, which will determine the price.

“If there isn’t a guarantee and it’s done on a share basis, then again that determines what the price will be.”

Asked about a price jump, Warren said: “Oh yeah. With the four belts on the line – without discussing it with anyone, yeah, I’m sure the price will go up.

“The same as if Tyson would have fought Anthony Joshua, the price would go up. They are the two big money fights.”

Warren is negotiating a deal for Fury, 34, to fight Usyk, 35, with the Middle East ready to front mega money to host.

But the Hall of Famer acknowledges they face a deadline to get it over the line.

He said: “Both fighters absolutely want it.

“The managers and promoters all want it, so we’re just getting it together and working out where we’re gonna put it on – that’s really the situation.

“It’s gotta go on by March and so we’ve gotta all move quickly so over the next couple of weeks we will or we won’t get it sorted out.

“But everybody wants to do the fight, absolutely want to do it.”
