The price represents an increase from Fury’s last title defence against Dillian Whyte, which was available on the same platform for £24.95.
So far, the only undercard information available is Daniel Dubois defending his WBA Regular World title against former cruiserweight, Kevin Lerena.
Fury’s matchmaking with Chisora has received backlash from fans, fighters, and pundits. It will be third time the pair enter the ring together in a professional contest, with Fury handily winning in their first two.
Fans perhaps feel even more hard done by considering a much-anticipated bout with Anthony Joshua was teased in the lead up to this announcement.
The negotiations between the former-champion and Fury turned sour as many predicted they would. Fury then entertained putting on a total mismatch against an inactive and largely unknown Mahmoud Charr before settling on Chisora.
Fury in the past has claimed he would like to do a free-to-air fight in the future.
Frank Warren, ‘The Gypsy King’s promoter, is confident of a sell-out at the new North London stadium, but as of writing there are tickets still available.
Fury versus Chisora will be the second boxing card held there following Anthony Joshua’s unsuccessful title defence against Oleksandr Usyk in 2021 which reportedly sold out within 24 hours. According to Warren there were 50,000 tickets sold for this trilogy bout on the first day.
