After 90,000+ watched Anthony Joshua’s last fight at Wembley Stadium, a record breaking 70,000 tickets have been sold for his October 28th clash with Kubrat Pulev at Principality Stadium in Cardiff Wales.
Tickets moved quickly for Joshua’s first fight since facing off with Wladimir Klitschko as he meets his IBF mandatory challenger. The event has become the fastest selling sporting show at the stadium, and has surpassed the 63,000 set by Muhammad Ali and Leon Spinks at the New Orleans Superdome in 1978 for 13th largest fight in history per the Telegraph.
Joshua’s Promoter Eddie Hearn commented saying that…
“It was another incredible day at the box office for Anthony Joshua as he continues to cement his place as the biggest draw in World boxing… The support he receives from the British public is incredible and has been an integral part of his success – the fans will be in for a great night on October 28 and we thank them all for their support.”
Filling out the card features Kal Yafai defending his WBA Wold Super-Flyweight title against Japanese mandatory challenger Sho Ishida, and Irish sensation Katie Taylor challenges for her first World title as she takes on two-weight World champion Anahi Esther Sanchez for the WBA Lightweight crown.
The British and Commonwealth Light-Heavyweight battle between Frank Buglioni, Lenroy Thomas and Dave Allen rematch for the Commonwealth Heavyweight title and Team GB Olympian and Welsh talent Joe Cordina appears in his fifth pro outing round out the October 28th card as of now.
