Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff Horn boxing match goes down in Australian history as the biggest fight since 1992 (i.e. Azumah Nelson vs Jeff Fenech boxing event which was witnessed by 38,000 boxing Australian fanatics).
This is after 40,000 tickets were sold out of the target audience of 55,000 capacity of the venue at Brisbane. Organizers believe that before the match day, the ticket will be sold and expect 55 thousand viewers from the country will be watching the once in a lifetime event where their fellow Australian will have a shot to beat one of the greatest boxer in the history.
According to Tourism Minister, Kate Jones, there's a great potential that Suncorp Stadium crowd of 55,000 fans will be filled with still one month to go before the big night.
"We always knew this fight would pack a punch for Brisbane. With 40,000 tickets already sold it will be the biggest boxing crowd ever seen in Australia. This fight also has the potential to host a record Suncorp Stadium crowd of 55,000 fans, with more than a month to go," Jones said
