The pay-per-view buy numbers for Fury vs. Chisora 3 have been revealed by Tyson Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren.

In December, Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, claimed that 'AJ' was a bigger commercial draw in the sport than the current WBC Heavyweight Champion in an interview with IFL TV. Hearn explained that Joshua could do better numbers than the undefeated boxer no matter who he fights, whereas 'The Gyspy King' cannot do the same. The Matchroom Sports boss claimed on BT Sports box office that the Manchester-born heavyweight did 300,000 PPV buys from his clash against Derek Chisora.

“At the end of the day, Tyson Fury vs. Derek Chisora did less than 300,000 buys on pay-per-view, AJ could fight you [the interviewer] and do 500,000 buys”

In an interview with SecondsOut, 'The Gypsy King's promoter Frank Warren offered a rebuttal. He revealed that Fury vs. Chisora 3 made more than 500,000 PPV buys and also claimed that the fight sold more pay-per-views than Hearn’s streaming partner DAZN even had subscribers.

“As you know one of our rivals is always banging on about what numbers we’ve done, I don’t know where he gets his numbers from but I would tell you this, we did far more buys than they’ve got subscribers on deadzone [DAZN]”
