“Why after I take my money for the FURY fight it’s just a black screen with an unavailable news channel and then the box just crashes?” said another. Another fan commented: “Is it on yet? All I see is a black screen with a number in the corner,” while another added, “Anyone else having trouble watching the Fury fight on Virgin Media? here.”

And after a friendly build-up, Fury insisted he wasn’t untouchable, having been forced to climb off the canvas four times in his three fights with Wilder. “I’m not sure about all these outboxes – unless I’m Houdini I can definitely beat them all, but I’ve definitely been beaten before.
“I’ve had more bounces off the screen than a bouncy ball. I’m not the untouchable boxer everyone thinks I am. I’m just a regular boxer who got lucky 32 times in a row I guess! “
