Tyson Fury’s promoter Bob Arum talks of ticket impact as fighter focuses on home

Tyson Fury’s promoter Bob Arum says the economic impact of coronavirus means “low ticket prices” will be needed at events when boxing action returns.

The sport is on hold in the UK, while Arum has called events off in the US given the social distancing rules in place to slow the spread of the virus.

Arum, 88, does not feel fans will be “frightened” to attend future events.

“I think the problem will be prices for admission will have to be adjusted,” Arum told the 5 Live boxing podcast.

“People will be suffering economically,” he added, citing record unemployment figures in the US.

“When this is over and we go back to doing events with spectators, we have to be very, very careful to have relatively low ticket prices as people will not be able to afford the prices they had been paying before coronavirus.”
