People in the US will also have to pay a significant pay-per-view fee to watch through ESPN+ PPV, while those in Canada will be expected to pay CAD $49.99 to see the Paul vs Fury fight live.

The high price of the boxing bout means millions will likely seek out alternatives to watch free live streams of the fight.

This has become an increasingly popular trend in recent years, with all major fights in boxing and MMA typically hosted on illicit streaming sites that allow people to avoid the cost and geolocation barriers.

Online streams that allow fight fans to watch the fights for free attract millions of views as people share links across social media on sites like Facebook and Twitter, as well as through dedicated forums on Reddit and channels on messaging apps like Telegram. This is despite these websites having content moderation policies designed to deter against such practices.

Popular websites that host free streams for boxing and other sporting events are also relatively easy to find through popular search engines, with Google rival DuckDuckGo stating in 2022 that it would refuse to censor or remove piracy sites from its results.

The proliferation of online piracy has led to warnings about cyber security risks and legal implications for anyone seeking out the free live streams.

Individuals were served notices warning that they risked criminal prosecution if they continued to watch illegal online streaming services, however to date no person has been imprisoned for watching illicit content.

Police typically target the people and groups that are behind the operations, with prison sentences handed out to two men found guilty of supplying illicit streams in 2021.

“Accessing films, TV series and live sports events from unauthorised sources is illegal and can expose consumers to risks such as data theft and malware, and can help fund organised criminal groups,” Gary Robinson, a detective chief inspector at the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU), said in January.
