Boxing fans will have to shell out a whopping £26.95 to watch the fight from home, a price several have slammed during the ongoing cost of living crisis.

And Hearn believes the hefty price will put people off from parting with their hard-earned cash.

He told iD Boxing: “I think it does between 200,000 and 300,000 buys and they probably need between 400,000 and 500,000.

“Listen, Tyson Fury’s a huge star and he’s not going to be boxing for small money.

“I know what Derek Chisora’s making, I think most people do and if the tickets haven’t quite sold as well as anticipated, you’re under a lot of pressure.

“But that’s the job of the promoter and you put your balls on the line sometimes to hit numbers.

“Sometimes you hit them, and sometimes you don’t hit them. I’ve been on both sides.

“Always ugly, never pretty when you’re on that side.”

Hearn believes rival promoter Frank Warren and broadcasters BT Sport will be hard-pressed to convince fans to part with nearly £30 for a third fight between the duo.

He continued “I just difficult, Chisora’s a big name, Fury’s a big star, but you’re relying on people to spend that money at a difficult time.”

Fury goes into his third clash with Chisora having handily beaten the veteran in their 2011 and 2014 clashes.

But fan favourite Chisora believes his old foe has REGRESSED since their last meeting eight years ago.

War told BT Sport: “I think he was a better fighter when I last boxed him.

“Last time I fought him he was better, he was good, he was on point.”

How To

These are the basics of boxing

How to effectively box

Boxing is one of the most popular sports in the world. It is a fight between two opponents. There are different rules for boxing, and they vary from one country to the next. There are generally three types of boxing: Amateur, Professional, and Olympic.

Amateur boxing can be practiced at school or college. This form of boxing involves sparring with no protection and using padded gloves. Amateur boxing matches usually consist of three rounds lasting five minutes each. There are many styles of amateur boxing such as Kickboxing or Muay Thai, Taekwondo and Karate, Judo and Wrestling, among others.

Boxing professionals are usually trained in clubs, gyms, or stadiums. They wear protective equipment such as mouthpiece, nose guard, shin guards, elbow pads, knee pads, waist belt and groin protector. Professional boxing contests last six rounds and last for four minutes each. There are several different styles of professional boxing including Boxing, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Taekwondo and others.

Olympic boxing is done at the Olympics. International standards dictate that boxers must wear protective gear. Each round lasts three minutes and is made up of eight rounds. Olympic boxing can be divided into two types: Light Flyweight (Heavyweight) and Heavyweight (Light Flyweight).

Boxing’s fundamental skills are:

  • Punching techniques
  • Guarding techniques
  • Footwork
  • Stance
  • Movement of the body
  • Defense
  • Combination
  • Rotation
  • Spare parts

Punching Techniques

There are seven types: Left Hook (right hook), Right Hook (uppercut), Cross (cross), Straight, Overhand, Underhand. Each punch comes with its own technique. Some punches require more force than others. An uppercut, for instance, requires tremendous strength. A straight punch on the other side requires less power, but is more effective than other punches.

There are also different combinations. These are combinations of punches which work together to achieve a goal. A combination may contain several parts. An example of this is a left hook, followed by a right crossing. This will damage the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

To defend himself from being attacked, a boxer uses his entire body. He does this by using his legs, arms, elbows, hands, knees and feet.

Legs

A boxer must use his legs to defend against kicks. He raises his leg when he is hit with a kick and then moves away from the opponent. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. He will block the kick with his foot if the attack is coming from behind.

Elbows

Elbow strikes are very effective because they inflict much pain. An elbow strike can be delivered directly or indirectly. Directly refers to hitting your opponent with the forearm, while indirect means you hit him using another part of your arms.

Hands

Boxers use their hands as a shield against incoming punches. Boxers raise their fists to block incoming blows and then move in the direction of the attacker’s attack. Then, they touch the attacker’s hand.

Knees

A boxer should bend his knees in order to absorb any blows to his stomach, abdomen, chest or stomach. For defense purposes, knee strikes are common.

Feet

If he is being attacked, a boxer must take a step back and counter-attack. This way, he can gain distance between himself and his opponent. A boxer must also maintain his balance when responding to an opponent’s counter-attack.

Stances

In order to box effectively, a boxer needs to establish a stance. How he defends his self will depend on how he stances. It dictates how he places his body and faces his opponent. There are many positions that boxers can adopt. These are the most popular:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance
  • Western stance

Body Movement

In order to win a fight, a boxer must move around his opponent. This includes changing speed, position and rhythm.

Rotation

When a boxer throws a punch, he rotates in order to increase the reach of his arm. Different types of punches require different speeds for the rotation.

Combinations

The effectiveness of a combination depends on the timing of each individual punch. A combination is good if it starts with a strong punch then ends with a weaker one.

Spare parts

Sparring is a training session that improves boxing skills. Boxers learn to train their mind and bodies during sparring sessions. Sparring is a way to learn how to fight without getting hurt.

You need to have patience and dedication in order to learn how boxing works. Boxing is a sport that requires dedication and perseverance.
