    Default AJ v Povetkin - tickets not sold out in 10 minutes for once - Coincidence?

    About fucking time this happened 👌🏼

    Ticketmaster to shut down controversial resale sites Seatwave and Get Me In
    The competition watchdog has previously warned that secondary ticket sellers may be breaching the law by failing to properly inform customers about events or venues.

    Everyone knew those events didn’t sell to real customers so quickly. It would have been impossible to process. The fight will still sell out so it’s no knock on AJ.

    Good to cut into Eddies pockets by not letting him double dip AJ by buying all the tickets up for resale.

    Educate yourself on secondary/resale ticket websites like Stubhub or viagogo and sort your spelling out while you at it.

    You got it. Viagogo although not a scam site is very deceptive for the general public. I always tell people that if it sounds to good to be true it, then it probably isn't.

    Put it this way.... Froch v Groves 2 and most of AJs fights from Wlad onwards....
    Wembley/Cardiff - 90,000 & 72,000 tickets.
    Both venues were "sold out" the SECOND they went on general release on Hearns official website.
    Matchroom boxing are/we're the major shareholder of Stubhub?
    I tried for most of these fights but refuse to pay 3, 4 or even 5 times the face value of a ticket when I'll end up stuck in the very highest seating area using binoculars just to see the fight.
    Frank Warren has championed against these websites for a few years now (Fuelled by his spat with Hearn no doubt) and it actually got brought up in Parliament recently and looks like things are changing.
    It's not just Boxing and sports events either.
    Ed Sheeran is another one who wants change and doesn't want his fans ripped a new asshole just to see his gigs.

    I grew up a few miles away from Wembley Stadium and back in the day we used to rush home from school jump on the Met Line and go buy a good ticket for an England home game for about £5 off the dodgy cunt outside the stadium.
    We were about 12 years old. 😁

    This is it!
    Hearn already had 40/50% of the tickets bulk sold to his sister company Stubhub.
    I even heard it was 65% upwards for the Wlad fight.
    Criminal.
    Does this go on in the US out of curiosity?
    I know for big Vegas fights the casinos buy loads up beforehand then bang them out to the high rolling casino merchants which is why UK and US fight atmospheres are completely different.

    It's still not fraud. People don't have to click 'buy'. It does suck and many countries around the world are trying to crack down on it.

    That's the problem.. technically it's legal but Hearn has been carefully kissing the razorblade without kissing for years now it if you get me and hopefully that bubbles burst (as if the cunt doesn't make enough £$£$ anyway)
    I heard there's still AJ v Povetkin tickets available as we speak which is unheard of for Josh's last 3 fights 😉

    It is unheard of, especially as in my opinion this is a very competitive fight.

    The ticket sale companies need to get more strict. Some governments have got involved.

    Limit how many tickets can be sold to each credit card number, resale price should not exceed original price etc.

    Although I see this as a bit of a banana skin fight potentially I think the fact AJ has publicly lost face due to the Wilder v Fury circus and must feel like he's had his pants pulled down / ass spanked will only make him come out like a raging bull and smash Povetkin through the ropes in brutal fashion.
    Never known AJ to shut up shop and know quiet.. he's usually all over YouTube/social media but has said fuck all in the last 6 weeks.
    I think he's pissed and we'll see Josh going for the kill early.
    I really do think he's gonna put it right on Povetkin early and batter him unconscious and flip the media attention back on himself 😎👊🏻
