Despite officially opening up next week, tickets for the Anthony Joshua v Jarrell Miller fight have already shown up on a re-sale site.
Initially, Joshua v Miller set a pre-purchase record on Friday ahead of general sale being released to the public on Tuesday.
Fans are clamoring to be part of the Madison Square Garden blockbuster on June 1. As a result, floor seats are startlingly being offered at over $15,000 (£12,000).
This is over four times what the highest ticket is thus far priced at, according to media released information.
Promoter Eddie Hearn, who has links to StubHub in a standard-priced capacity, was purring on Friday at the initial numbers.
“We know that AJ is a huge box office hit in the UK. But to break the pre-sale record at the iconic Madison Square Garden is astounding,” said Hearn.
“We’re building a huge event on June 1. We look forward to the all the build-up beginning with next Tuesday’s press conference in New York.”
The Matchroom boss will not be happy at the current status those tickets are appearing on website Viagogo.
Heading to New York for a US debut, Joshua hopes a win over Miller will lead to an undisputed unification with Deontay Wilder.
In the midst of talks with Tyson Fury over a rematch, it seems like Wilder has his own hands full – as does Joshua.
Subsequently, both need to come through their respective clashes in order to set-up the opportunity for negotiations down the line.
In the summer of 2018, initial talks broke down due to disagreements following weeks of back-and-forth stipulations.
Miller brings an undefeated record to the table. But begins a massive 5/1 outsider to defeat unified ruler Joshua.
