Whicker: Wilder-Fury is a test for pay-per-view appeal

By Mark Whicker

LOS ANGELES — Heavyweight boxing is dead. Pay-per-view is dead. The thing you just unfolded to read this paragraph, that big, ungainly, crinkly thing made of paper? That’s dead, too.

Meanwhile, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fight at Staples Center Saturday night, and those who didn’t buy tickets were offered the chance to watch it at home, as long as they paid $74.99.

A surprisingly large media horde was also on hand, with real live newspaper people. Many were from the United Kingdom, where Fury’s careening career is a source of high fascination.

Just because death is inevitable doesn’t mean it’s imminent.
