Boxing Fight: The highly anticipated bout between Amir Khan and Kell Brook has already sold out, as fans want to see their animosity put to rest.
Khan vs Brook at the Manchester AO Arena has sold out in less than ten minutes, making it one of the fastest-selling events in British sporting history.
Fans signed up for last week’s presale at a rate of six for every one ticket available, indicating the extraordinary degree of demand. The presale on Friday sold out in less than four minutes.
The presale sell-out speed was mirrored when a last batch of tickets went on sale to the general public on Monday, with the event being declared a sell-out barely six minutes after the public sale began.
BOXXER, which took over as the Sky Sports Boxing promoter just three months ago, currently holds the records for the greatest box office take for an indoor UK sports event and the fastest sell-out for a UK boxing event, thanks to the lightning-fast sell-out and value of the ticket inventory sold.
“We knew we’d be able to sell out the venue multiple times over, but the demand for tickets has been incredible.” “The venue assured us that this event is ‘bigger than Bieber,'” said Ben Shalom, creator and CEO of BOXXER.
“The national interest in this struggle is off the charts – it’s the most important British conflict in decades.” We’re anticipating an electrifying night on February 19 for what will be a legendary and legacy-defining fight in front of a sold-out crowd.”
Khan and Brook have had a rivalry since they were teenagers, when Amir Khan, then 17, earned an Olympic silver medal after being selected ahead of Brook for the Team GB squad that competed in the 2004 Olympic Games.
Khan has held the titles of unified light-welterweight world champion and Commonwealth lightweight champion, while Brook has held the titles of British welterweight champion and IBF world welterweight champion.
With animosity between the two have remained high since their amateur days, British boxing fans have long wished for a professional confrontation. As the country’s two greatest welterweights, their fight in February will not only resolve their rivalry but also establish who is the best welterweight in the country.
