Some fans slammed the cost and pointed out that Canelo Alvarez's trilogy fight with Gennady Golovkin is only priced at £9.99 and £17.98.
One said: "As if they’re charging more for this, than they are Canelo vs GGG."
Another posted: "It's more than Canelo GGG."
But in defence of the price, one argued: "Actually a decent price, especially when you compare it to Jake Paul’s overpriced s***.
"I’d say this card could do 500-800k PPV buys in the UK."

KSI has three times fought before, starting with a win over Joe Weller, 26, in 2018, the same year he drew against Logan Paul, 27.
That night, the online rivals sold 1.3million PPVs and packed out the Manchester Arena, for what was a white collar bout.
They then turned professional a year later, on DAZN, and KSI won via scrappy split-decision.
He has not returned since, instead focussing on music, but that changes against Wassabi, who in March beat KSI's brother Deji.
