The boxing community at large is very excited to witness the two square off against each other. For the same, the Pay-per-view price of the bout was around $84.99 in the United States of America. However, in recent revelation, it has been reported that in the United Kingdom, the fight would be shown live on DAZN.

@MichaelBensonn took to Twitter and reported, “Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia on April 22nd will be shown live on DAZN in the UK within the regular subscription, not on PPV.”

The fans at large had an interesting reaction to the same. Here are a few fan reactions:
One fan @Kloppista_LFC could foresee such a thing taking place: “It feels like an April Fools even though this type of thing was promised by DAZN at the start.”

Another fan expressed his reflection on how other fans reacted to the news. @MrWadeK wrote: “Fans still moaning. Unless Dazn makes them a full English and tucks them in at night, they won’t see value”

While, another fan does not consider it to be worth the money. @iwrite86 wrote: “£20 is still not worth it considering they don’t have much content. £10 extra is Sky Sports price and they’ve got a barrel of content when there’s no boxing on.”

One fan attempted to influence people to buy the subscription. @bradfordmoose wrote: “Don’t get used to it UK folk. These fights used to be free in Canada too, then they started making Garcia and Canelo PPV no doubt AJ next fight will be here too.”

Lastly, one fan named @K_ggMUFC wrote: “DAZN really kicking into gear now.”
