FRANK WARREN has announced Daniel Dubois' showdown with Joe Joyce will not be on pay-per-view.
The two hottest prospects in heavyweight boxing clash inside the ring behind-closed-doors on November 28.
Like most big-name fights, it was originally due to be shown on BT Sport Box Office meaning fans will need to pay an extra fee to watch the action unfold.
But BT Sport subscribers will now be able to save their cash with the fight to be included in the package.
Promoter Warren told the Daily Star: "With the ‘second wave’ seemingly upon us, it seems any prospect of fans returning to arenas has faded as quickly as the Summer sun and, as such, this week we decided to run the biggest fight on the British boxing calendar behind-closed-doors and, crucially, not on Pay Per View.
"Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce are the two hottest prospects in heavyweight boxing and when they meet on November 28th the eyes of the world will be watching.
"This is the biggest domestic battle in years and with the UK economy stuttering and morale in danger of flagging, BT Sport and I hatched a plan to give something of a gift to UK fans.
"Originally scheduled for BT Sport Box Office, the fight will now be provided as part of your regular subscription – a real win for British boxing."
Dynamite Dan was originally billed to defend his British and Commonwealth titles against the Juggernaut at a packed O2 in April.
But the coronavirus pandemic and ban on fans have led to a handful of rescheduled dates.
Speaking ahead of the fight, Dubois said: "Nothing’s changed from February when I first said I’d knock Joe out.
"It’s a tough fight, he’s a good fighter, but I’m looking to deliver another devastating performance and move on to fight for a world title.
“I’m just glad we can finally get it on. I know we’ve both been looking forward to it and I’m sure the British public are just as excited as we are for us to finally fight.
“Joe is going to find out just how explosive Dynamite really is.”
