Frampton vs Quigg tickets sell out in minutes; touts re-sell at £1,600

Carl Frampton v Scott Quigg

It’s arguably one the biggest fights in a generation for the people of Northern Ireland and those of you looking tickets will be disappointed.

The super-bantamweight unification bout between Belfast’s Carl Frampton and Bury’s Scott Quigg sold out in under 10 minutes – staggering. 19,500 tickets that is!!

Promoter Eddie Hearn tweeted: “Waiting on official times but SOLD OUT in under 10 mins!”

Carl Frampton warned fans minutes before the sale.

However, fans reacted angrily as tickets became available shortly after on the ticket website Stubhub.com at inflated prices.

Tickets on the site are currently going for as much as £1,600 for a floor seat and £1,000 for a mid-tier view. Tickets originally being sold for £40 are now going for a whopping £265. Hopefully it was mainly The Jackal’s fans who snapped them up. Speaking at the press conference, Frampton said: “I will have more fans in the arena because he is not a massive ticket seller. “A lot of people want to watch this fight and so he may get a bit of a fan base off that, but he is not a huge draw. “I don’t know what it’s going to be like for him to be standing on the ramp in Manchester, his home city, and getting booed. “It would have been a shame if it didn’t happen. It had to happen for boxing. “I have always said I would fight him in Manchester. I think I can knock him out and I probably will later on.”
