Boxing: How you can still buy tickets for Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium

Callum Davis

With a little more than a fortnight left until the biggest heavyweight boxing match in recent memory, anticipation for the fight between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko continues to build - as does demand for tickets.  

27-year-old Anthony Joshua will put his IBF heavyweight title belt on the line as the Olympic champion looks to extend his unbeaten record with a victory in the sold out bout at Wembley Stadium.

After the first batch of tickets sold out in record time in December, the second sale saw all remaining £80 seats sold in just 10 minutes.

An extra 10,000 seats were made available after Matchroom Boxing's Eddie Hearn convinced London Mayor Eddie Hearn to increase Wembley's capacity for the fight to 90,000.

The bout is now officially sold out with the blockbuster fight ready to smash the attendance record for a boxing match in the UK after 80,000 were in attendance to watch Carl Froch vs George Groves in 2014.

Purchased tickets are currently being resold on online vendors like StudHub and Ticketmaster, with seats available from £102. The cheapest pair together are priced at £120.

“The demand for tickets for Joshua vs Klitschko is phenomenal - this is unquestionably the biggest fight in British boxing history and we would have sold out Wembley twice over," said promoter, Eddie Hearn. 

With April 29 fast approaching, Anthony Joshua has said he is looking forward to being 'let off the leash' following a typically intensive training camp.

"I'm like a tamed animal - until I'm let off the leash in the ring," said Joshua.

"Come the night I have to be a killer. If you are not a killer in this game, you get eaten alive."

The build-up to the fight has been without incident or controversy thanks to the mutual respect between the two boxers.

"It is refreshingly different from the British boxers I fought before," said Klitschko, who has previously been engaged in a war of words with Joshua's fellow Brit, David Haye.

"Anthony is proof that it is not about nationality, but personality. The respect we are showing each other for this fight is good for boxing. It is what boxing needs.

"This fight does not need the pretend bullying, It is a match-maker's dream. Look at 90,000 fans coming to Wembley. I am glad to be going to London now. The British are great people who love their sport."

Joshua recently echoed Klitschko's sentiments insisting neither fighter needed to resort to cheap trash talking.

"You're not dealing with two novices - I don't need to talk about what I'm going to do and how I'm going to knock him out," Joshua told Sky Sports News HQ.

"You know Wladimir Klitschko and you're getting to know Anthony Joshua. The fight speaks volumes for itself. I don't need to talk reckless about what this fight's about.

"I'm not perfect but I have my ways about me and I was raised with conduct and discipline, that's just who I am. I would rather defend my corner than provoke it.

"Everyone's saying we're friends and stuff. Yeah, the respect's there. I never expected to compete with Wladimir so he's someone where I can say I'm going to analyse what he's about.

"Trust me, let that first jab hit me or hit him. It changes. In films, when they taste blood and you see red, it's a fight. That's what I train to do and the best man will win."
