MOSCOW, September 23 (R-Sport) Nine-tenths of the tickets for next month’s WBA heavyweight title fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Alexander Povetkin in Moscow have been sold, organizers told R-Sport on Monday.

A sellout of the 35,000-capacity Olimpiisky arena would rank the bout among the best-attended in Russian history.

“There all practically no tickets left already,” organizers said in a statement. “Already 90 percent have been sold. As for the VIP tickets, they all sold out a while ago.”

The fight, to take place on October 5, already appears to be a significantly greater commercial success than Vitali Klitschko’s bout with Manuel Charr last year, when vast areas of the same arena were empty.

Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko comes into the title fight with a 60-3 record, while Russia’s Povetkin is undefeated in 26 bouts.
