    Having dumped DAZN a month ago, it’s a relief to just discover the Usyk fight is on Amazon Prime, £25.
    Checked options of Sky and TNT, but only online. Preferring a big screen, obviously Amazon’s come to the rescue.
    Let’s hope this is the start of their coverage of boxing, to include the UK.

    My mum's asked me if I've 'seen Tommy Fury's dad kicking off' and then asked when the fight is on. Told her to fook off.

    Interestingly (for me anyway), on Virgin the only PPV option is from TNT.

    For the December and March cards, the only option on there was DAZN.

    Reckon at least 30 million UK citizens will be watching this across all available broadcasting platforms.

    DAZN UK buys will be about 26-27 people.

    The more choice the better for boxing fans.

    Happy days.

    Which one is the cheapest to purchase? I will not be using DAZN because I cannot bear to listen to Tony Bellew and that little Ade guy from YouTube. Costello on the commentary far too painful, also.

    Not necessarily, the more outlets who get a piece of the PPV pie the more they'll want to do more of them in the future. I was talking to someone from one of these these recently who said they wanted to get involved and dip their toes in the water and if worth it will ramp up the PPV's .

    She was quite upset when I tried to comfort her.

    There is a limited size pie in the UK and too many mediocre Box Office events simply results in failed non viable loss making business such as DAZN UK with less then 250 subscribers.

    There is a plethora of subscriptions these days which has also resulted in a huge growth of people viewing live sport.

    The options have never been so good for sports fans to watch live sport.

    Do you know if you need to be already subscribed to Prime to access? I was planning on watching this at my local boozer but watching on prime seems tempting (and cheaper).

    Ignore this, apparently you don't need a Prime subscription.
