In Saudi Arabia, a lot of money is missing following the results of the conflict between Ukrainian and British.

The organizers of the fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion suffered greatly due to television pirates.

This data is provided by the authoritative Daily Mail. According to journalists, the historic victory of Alexander Usik against Tyson Fury was watched by at least 20 million viewers through illegal broadcasts.

Due to such actions, copyright holders lost approximately 120 million euros in revenue.

Yield Sec’s analysis found that 45% of illegal broadcasts were in Europe, 25% in North America and 16% in Asia.

It has been noted that the number of pirated match broadcasts is one of the highest among all sporting events in history.

Let’s remember that Usik’s victory over Fury brought him the absolute heavyweight championship. The fight went all 12 rounds. The Ukrainian won by split decision – 115:112, 114:112, 113:114.
