Finding an illegal stream for Mike Tyson’s comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr could have dire consequences, fans have been warned.

The fight is being shown on BT Sport Box Office on a pay-per-view basis, but unofficial outlets are expected to advertise that they are showing the fight for free over live streams.

In the past, some streaming sites have even asked for small payments over PayPal to access the fights – but those streams risk being taken off air due to copyright infringement.

Streaming websites create dangerous possibilities for those who watch, with the risk of malware which could infect PCs and laptops if they do not have adequate virus protection.

There are also warnings for fans who plan to use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram’s live recording services to share the fight with their friends.

Bristol-based Yusuf Mohammed was slapped with a £16,000 fine in 2017 after he was found to have profited from re-streaming Sky Sports content online.

In the same year, Craig Foster from Scarborough was handed a mammoth £85,000 bill when his friend broadcast the Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko fight.

The 34-year-old paid for the fight on Sky Box Office, but was prosecuted because the friend then illegally broadcast it via Facebook to 4,250 people via Foster’s iPad.

A watermark of his account number allowed Sky to track down Foster, and they hit him with the bill due to loss of earnings.

“I’d paid for the boxing, it wasn’t like I was making any money,” Foster told the Mirror at the time.

“My iPad was signed in to my Facebook account and my friend just started streaming the fight.

“I didn’t think anything of it, then a few days later they cut my subscription.

“They’re demanding the names and addresses of all my mates who were round that night but I’m not going to give them up. I said I’d take the rap.”
