60,000 allocation sells out on Monday, more tickets expected to be released.
With the build-up underway, Carl Froch and George Groves both gave their reaction to the former’s shove on his opponent as tempers flared at Wembley on Monday.
Having remained calmed throughout the press conference with the assembled media inside the stadium, the pair were then asked to go pitchside for more photographs.
While Groves appeared to be whispering into his rival’s ear as the press asked for the pair to face off, Froch felt obliged to push his opponent away from him before Groves warned promoter Eddie Hearn that he would not accept being touched again.
Froch’s brother, Lee, who had been vocal throughout the day and has been involved with trades with Groves on Twitter, was also heard provoking the fighter and became embroiled in the situation to deflect the attention away from Froch himself.
Nevertheless, it promises to be an interesting build-up to the fight with both men expected to continue with media days across the country as a second allocation of tickets is expected to announced in the coming weeks.
Hearn revealed that the first 60,000 tickets had sold-out on Monday, but he would now be speaking with various organisations and bodies to discuss the possibility of allowing 20,000 more tickets to be sold which would be available in the upper tier of the stadium.
However, all the talk on Monday surrounded the heated exchange between the two boxers, with Froch insisting that he was relaxed throughout the process and he wasn’t biting to Groves’ provocation.
