“Oh, by the way, I’m canceling me DAZN subscription coz it’s gone up from 2 pounds to 7 quid. I’m not having it. Too much of a jump, Frank. If we went from 20 quid on Pay Per View to 75, it’d be no good, would it? And it’s the same jump, it’s about a 95% increase.” Fury remarked.

In a bid to break Sky Sports and BT Sport’s stranglehold of British Boxing, DAZN increased their monthly subscription rates in the UK and Ireland. “That price point is a recognition and a doff of the cap for the fact that we’ve significantly increased our live sport and original content offer in the UK and Ireland, relative to when we launched in December,” Markowski told Sportsmail.

Tyson Fury’s fight against Deontay Wilder will air only on BT Sport Boxing in the UK.
