60,000 Tickets Sell Quickly on Monday




According to reports, all 60,000 of the tickets that were released to the general public in the United Kingdom on Monday for Groves/Froch II have been sold.

The fight, which is scheduled to take place at Wembley Stadium on May 31st, will set a post-WWII attendance record in the UK thanks to Monday's strong sales. The previous record, 56,000, belonged to the Ricky Hatton/Juan Lazcano fight that took place in 2008.

According to reports, organizers are hoping that another 20,000 tickets will be sold.

According to George Groves, however, the fight may not take place at all.

When Groves and Froch fought for the first time on November 23rd, 2013, the fight was called off by referee Howard Foster in the ninth round. Groves appealed the decision, charging that Foster had called things off early. The IBF ordered a rematch, and the two fighters will once again be squaring off on May 31st.

However, Groves has said that the appointment of "neutral officials" will be necessary for him to move forward with the fight, as he feels that he was robbed the first time around.

There is no indication as to what exactly Groves means by "neutral officials", as both he and Froch were born in England.
