Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev

70000 Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev tickets sold

Anthony Joshua takes on Kubrat Pulev for the IBF and WBA "super" heavyweight titles at Cardiff's Principality Stadium next month and it is already almost sold out. Joshua is coming off an epic slugfest against former longtime heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko, whom he knocked out in the 11th round to retain his belt and win a vacant one before a British boxing record crowd of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium in London.

According to BoxingScene, the heavyweight showdown beat the previous record set by Muhammad Ali's fight with Leon Spinks at the New Orleans Superdrome in 1978 where 63,000 fans were in attendance.

Sports fans in the United Kingdom can't seem to get enough of unified heavyweight titleholder Anthony Joshua.

"It was another incredible day at the box office for Anthony Joshua as he continues to cement his place as the biggest draw in World boxing", promoter Eddie Hearn told matchroomboxing.com.

'The support he receives from the British public is incredible and has been an integral part of his success - the fans will be in for a great night on October 28 and we thank them all for their support'.

The upcoming fight has become the fastest selling sporting show at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

Tickets are still available for the fight but are limited, with seats priced at £40, £60, £200 and £300 available to purchase on StubHub UK.
