TICKETS for Anthony Joshua’s British heavyweight title clash with Dillian Whyte at the O2 on December 12 have already sold out.

The fight combines one of Britain’s fastest rising stars in Joshua with outspoken rival Whyte, who picked up a win over the Olympic gold medallist at a very early stage of their amateur careers and clearly has wide appeal. According to Matchroom, tickets sold out in six hours.

Even Joshua’s last fight, against humble Scotsman Gary Cornish for the Commonwealth title, sold well compared to Floyd Mayweather-Andre Berto in Las Vegas on the same day.
