‘They know there’s a cost of living crisis, right?’ – Boxing fans fume at DAZN price to watch Anthony Joshua fight

FANS have been shocked at the price it will cost to watch Anthony Joshua fight Jermaine Franklin.

The Brit will make his comeback against the American on April 1 at the O2 Arena in London.

It will be his first fight since he lost his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk back in August.

The bout will be shown live on DAZN in the UK.

However, the monthly price to subscribe to the service has jumped from £7.99 to £19.99 per month.

Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn has a partnership with DAZN and promoted what is coming up this year in a tweet captioned: “No PPV (Pay Per View). Just a small taster of what is to come in 2023.”

This has left many fans of the sport fuming with them taking to social media to vent their frustrations.

One tweeted: “The cheek to say no PPV when the subscription fee to Dazn has just gone up.”

A second commented: “Going to a supermarket to decide on whether to buy these eggs or get a DAZN monthly subscription is not the executive decision I’m prepared to be making in 2023, got dang it.”

A third wrote: “They know there’s a cost of living crisis right?

“With BT I get moto GP, the footy, UFC and boxing. Sky the same plus NFL and F1. Dazn? Skye Nicholson and Turkish MMA. Bye, bye Eddie!”

A fourth said: “Technically, it still is because you have to pay to view it on DAZN, and they have just magically increased the monthly fee to £19.99 per month, timely.”

A fifth added: “No PPV but PPV price every month?”

Speaking on the fight, Hearn has said: “You go into that fight in April – you know that with defeat, it’s all over, really. It would be a third back-to-back defeat.

“And yet a great performance and a showreel knockout gets everyone saying, ‘We’re back, we’re back baby.’

“That’s what I can’t wait for, because I love it when our backs are against the wall.

“That’s the best moments and this is one of those moments for AJ. He wants a big fight in the summer.

“The one that would make sense and the one that should be hopefully quite straightforward to make is the rematch with Dillian Whyte.

“We’re open to a Deontay Wilder fight, we’re open to a Tyson Fury fight.
