JOSHUA VS KLITSCHKO SMASHES 80,000 WEMBLEY RECORD April super fight now pushing for 90,000 capacity extension

The World Heavyweight unification blockbuster between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko has broken box office records with over 80,000 tickets sold for the April 29 super fight at Wembley Stadium Connected by EE, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

The second batch of tickets for the blockbuster fight sold inside one hour when they released at lunchtime on Monday and the total tickets now sold has exceed the record set by Carl Froch’s World Super Middleweight title rematch against George Groves in 2014.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “The demand for tickets for Joshua vs Klitschko is phenomenal - this is unquestionably the biggest fight in British boxing history and we would have sold out Wembley twice over.

“We have put a request in to Brent Council, the Mayor’s office and TFL to increase the capacity by a further 5,000 tickets. We are confident of a positive answer and we will release further news shortly. Roll on April 29!"

Joshua MBE will face former World ruler Wladimir Klitschko for his IBF World Heavyweight title and the vacant IBO Championship as well as the WBA Super Championship on April 29, 2017 at Wembley Stadium Connected by EE, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Bernd Boente, CEO Klitschko Management Group, which will host this mega-event at Wembley Stadium together with Matchroom: “This is the most lucrative boxing fight that has taken place in Europe ever. Not only because of the ticket sales, but also the requests of international TV broadcasters and sponsors.“
