Frampton v Quigg tickets fly out
Tickets for the February 27 super bantamweight unification between Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg have sold out within minutes of going on sale.
The pair are set to collide in a massive UK clash at Manchester Arena in a contest that will see the winner walk away with the WBA ‘super’ and IBF world titles on the night.
Frampton v Quigg has been years in the making and boasts several failed attempts at negotiations, although both sides finally managed to agree a deal and are now reaping the rewards on the back of ticket demand.
Within minutes of the general sale allocation becoming available at 9am on Friday morning, fans were complaining that there were none left just minutes later and it seems only Matchroom Fight Pass members and those who brave the re-sale sites will get lucky.
A mass of 20,000 Frampton and Quigg supporters are expected to cram into the formerly M.E.N Arena early next year to witness the Sky Sports clash which sees one of the biggest rivalries in British boxing finally come to a head.
Those who managed to get through the hotlines and claim a place in the arena on fight night will be able to sit back and look forward to one of the most eagerly-anticipated encounters on British soil in recent times.
