ANTHONY JOSHUA’S heavyweight world title fight against Oleksandr Usyk has SOLD OUT within the first 24 hours of going on sale.
The 31-year-old defends his WBA, WBO and IBF belts against the unbeaten Ukrainian at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 25.
Olympic gold medallist Joshua was ordered by the WBO to fight Usyk, 34, after his undisputed title decider with Tyson Fury, 32, collapsed.
And despite supporters left disappointed that the match-up never materialised, fans have acted fast to get their hands on seeing AJ face the former cruiserweight king next month.
Matchroom have announced that tickets have been sold out within a day as 60,000 fans prepare to flock to England’s capital.
It is the seventh venue that Joshua has sold out after the UK’s Wembley Stadium, Principality Stadium, 02 Arena and Manchester Arena.
He even sold out Madison Square Garden for his trip to America, although lost his title against Andy Ruiz Jr in June 2019.
The Watford native then fought in front of a sold out capacity at Saudi Arabia’s Diriyah Arena when he outpointed Ruiz to become a two-time world champion.
Joshua hasn’t been in action since knocking out Bulgarian veteran Kubrat Pulev in December.
But he is looking in incredible shape for his dust-up against fellow Olympic champ Usyk.
