The old art of Boxing has, once again, proven that it is still a hugely popular sport.

Already this year we?ve seen Froch v Groves sell 80,000 tickets for their second showdown at Wembley Stadium and another big domestic match-up, between Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverly has sold out in record time.

Tickets for the promotion at the Liverpool Echo Arena on 22nd November were sold out in 48 hours

Those who run the Liverpool Echo Arena have confirmed that is one of the fastest events to sell out, including all other shows (pop concerts etc) since the venue opened in January 2008 with Eddie Hearn, the promoter, remarking,

?It is huge news Cleverly vs. Bellew is 48-hour box office sell out, making it the fastest selling sporting event in the Echo Arena?s history,? said promoter Eddie Hearn.?

?We had a little taste of the action this week and with same major announcements coming next week, those lucky enough to have grabbed a ticket and those watching at home are in for a wonderful night of British boxing. The atmosphere in the Echo Arena on November 22 will be breath-taking.?


Let?s just say it is a date that is red-ringed in my diary and with such a tasty bill I can?t wait.
