12.08.07 - By Paul Speak: There has been a lot of speculation in the press and media about the availability of tickets for this fight. The venue has still not been finalised. I have liaised with Richard Schaefer, Chief Executive Officer of Goldenboy Promotions. Richard has informed me that it is hoped a venue will be confirmed within the next week.
Once the venue has been confirmed, there will be a 2-3 week count down to the global release of tickets for the fight.
Goldenboy Promotions has confirmed that there will be a large number of tickets for fans travelling from the United Kingdom and Europe for what is likely to be the fight of the year.
Once an allocation of fight tickets for the United Kingdom has been agreed with Goldenboy Promotions, a box office, based in Manchester, will release the tickets on a date to be agreed with Goldenboy Promotions.
Prior to the fight there will be a promotional tour with Mayweather and Hatton. The tour will take in various cities in the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
The public are invited to these events and your support for Ricky will be appreciated.
