How to watch it on TV and live
A broadcaster for the fight in the UK has yet to be confirmed, but BT Sport is expected to show it on its Box Office service.

What Fury said
“Anthony, you’re not going to be that pretty after mat 29 – I’m going to smack your face and that’s a promise.
“And after I made you, little Oompa Loompa, I’m coming to get your best mate Jake Paul, because you both couldn’t beat him on the same night together.
“So, I can’t wait to see you in Fight Week because talking is cheap, and I want you to tell me to my face and see how brave you are then.” I’ll see you boys soon, take it easy.
What Taylor said
“Don’t expect Tommy to be the next Tyson. They are not cut from the same fabric if you know what I mean.
“I think sport lacks respect. In my eyes and in the eyes of many people who understand boxing, he is not a boxer, a boxer does not fight guys with 10 wins and 126 losses. I can see if you’ve fought guys who are 1-1, 2-1, 3-3, 4-5, alright 7-4, I can see if you f ** k those kind of opponents with these records, so people can say “okay, you’re not bad actually.”
“The only reason Tommy Fury is on this card or his name is even mentioned is because of Tyson.”
