GENNADY GOLOVKIN vs Kell Brook tickets, for their WBA, WBC and IBF World Middleweight title clash, sold-out in just 11 minutes at The O2 box-office today.
Golovkin and Brook meet at the London venue on September 10 live on Sky Sports Box Office and HBO and fight fans have snapped up the tickets in a heartbeat to see pound-for-pound star Golovkin box in the UK for the first time against the unbeaten IBF World Welterweight champion.
Two more World title contests were added this week as bitter rivals Lee Haskins and Stuart Hall rematch, this time with Haskins’ IBF World Bantamweight crown on the line and Charlie Edwards lands a World title shot in just his ninth pro fight as he takes on IBF Flyweight king Johnriel Casimero.
Martin J. Ward and Andy Townend clash for the vacant British Super-Featherweight title and Conor Benn tastes his fourth night of action in the paid ranks, with more fights to be added soon.
Unbeaten Essex talent Ward has impressed in his reign as WBC International champion with three strong wins in defences against Sergio Blanco, Mario Pisanti and Ruddy Encarnacion since forcing Maxi Hughes to retire after five rounds of their clash for the belt in April 2015.
English champion Townend also enters the fight on great form, unbeaten in his last nine outings where he picked up the English belt with a stoppage win over Femi Fehintola in four rounds in May 2015 and defending it twice inside the distance against Lee Glover and Craig Poxton.
The fight lands on the huge triple-World title night in Greenwich and Ward wants his clash with Townend to steal the show.
“I can’t wait to finally get in the ring and fight for the British title,” said Ward. “It’s the belt that all British fighters want to win and to fight for it on such a huge bill is great.
“Andy has been in great form and shown he has got power at the weight, but I believe I’ll have to much for him and it promises to be a great fight.”
