Over 50% of the tickets available for UNDEFEATED have been purchased as boxing fans worldwide are acting quickly in great anticipation of superstars’ Gennady “GGG” Golovkin andRoman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez return to The Fabulous Forum on Saturday, April 23 in separate bouts. The event will be televised Live on HBO World Championship Boxing® beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
“We’ve sold over 8,000 tickets in just the first week of being on sale,” said Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions. “This is the best pairing in boxing and fans have seen how fast tickets moved at our past shows in Los Angeles and New York City and don’t want to take a chance on missing out.”
“Gennady and Roman were each dominant in their knockout performances on October 17 and we sold out Madison Square Garden with 20,548 fans in attendance. Last May 16, at our first event at the Fabulous Forum 12,732 tickets were sold. Right now were on pace to have another sold out arena of over 16,000 tickets on April 23. This would be the first sellout of the Fabulous Forum for a boxing event since 1970.”
Following a cross-country press tour from Los Angeles to New York City, Golovkin and Gonzalez have opened up training camps in Big Bear Lake, California and Managua, Nicaragua, respectively.
“Gennady has that unique quality of putting on great performances in the ring and being able to sell out arenas across the country,” said Loeffler.
