The fight between the WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) and the owner of the “interim” title Dillian Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) should break the attendance record for boxing events in the 21st century.
As it became known to Boxingscene, the organizers expect at least 94,000 spectators in the stands of the London Wembley. At the same time, 85,000 tickets were sold out within three hours of the start of their sale on March 2, promoter Frank Warren said earlier.
At the moment, a record audience in the 21st century has also gathered at Wembley: the fight between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017 was attended by 88,000 fans.
The world boxing attendance record was set in February 1993 – the Aztec Stadium in Mexico City, where local icon Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. and American Greg Hogen fought, seated 132,274 spectators.
The Fury-White fight will take place on April 23.
Meanwhile, the American promoter is convinced that Fury is almost unbeatable with Sugar in the corner.
