Tyson Fury’s win over Deontay Wilder was streamed illegally by ‘10 to 20 million’ as US fans priced out, claims report – The Sun03/06/2020
UP to 20million people illegally streamed Tyson Fury's blockbuster demolition of Deontay Wilder.
In stark contrast, there were only around 800,000 legitimate Pay Per View buys of the WBC heavyweight showdown in Las Vegas.
The whopping PPV price of £62 in the States was a major gripe for fight fans.
And American magazine Sports Illustrated gave the huge figure of between 10 and 20m for those who turned to watching the action by clandestine means.
'Gypsy King' Fury completed one of the great sporting comebacks when Wilder's corner threw in the towel in the seventh round at the MGM Grand.
Their first fight in December 2018 was controversially ruled as a draw by the judges.
Most pundits felt Fury edged it, despite being knocked down twice – including one Lazarus-like recovery in the final round.
Fury was out of the ring for two years following a failed drugs test. He ballooned to a huge 28 stone while downing booze and cocaine – and even contemplated suicide.
He is now aiming for a unification showdown with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua.
