Matchroom Sport announced that over 70,000 tickets have already been sold for the Anthony Joshua vs. Joseph Parker fight for March 31 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
The stadium seats 78,000 fans at full capacity, which is what Joshua’s last fight against Carlos Takam pulled in on October 28 at that venue.
The tickets are still on sale for the Joshua-Parker fight, but they’re expected to sellout entirely soon.
It’s Unclear whether any additional seating can be found in the stadium by retrofitting. Joshua’s fights have been selling out at a speedy pace in his last 3 fights, as he’s growing more popular each time he fights.
If Joshua winds up facing WBC heavyweight champion Deontay ‘Bronze Bomber’ Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs), it’s going to be tough for the American heavyweight to make the case that their unification fight should take place in the States.
