Jake Paul's rematch with Tyron Woodley will be shown live on pay-per-view in the UK, though fans are outraged by the £20.99 price.
Paul and Woodley locked horns in a eight rounder that the former won via split decision back in August.
Paul, having moved to 4-0 in professional boxing, was then scheduled to face Tommy Fury on 18 December before the 22-year-old was forced to pull out due to a broken rib and bacterial chest infection.
Former UFC champion Woodley stepped up to take a second fight with Paul at short notice, however, ensuring the card in Tampa Bay, Florida still has a main event.
But fans are surprised that the fee given the same fight has already happened earlier this year.
Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley II will be available live through FITE TV online PPV for UK viewers - price listed £20.99.— Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) December 17, 2021
The first fight, which had the younger Fury and Daniel Dubois on the undercard, was shown on BT Sport Box Office for £16.95.
There's been just short of a £4.00 increase this time around, with the bout now available live on FITE TV following BT's withdrawal as a result

It's said that Paul-Woodley I drew between 400,000 and 500,000 pay-per-views, though that figure is a lot less than the 1.5 million buys the 'Problem Child' claimed it accrued.
This time around, Woodley will earn an extra $500,000 on top of his fight purse if he manages to knock Paul out.
Two days prior to their second fight, Paul has gifted Woodley a new-generation Rolex watch as a Christmas present for taking the bout on such short notice.
Paul, after shaking hands with Woodley, then said he bought the gift "because it's time for me to knock him out" during a face-to-face segment for Showtime.
The 24-year-old also treated his boxing coach BJ flores to a Rolex.
