Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg will do battle in front of a sell-out crowd in the new year.
The pair will meet at the Manchester Arena on February 27, live on Sky Sports Box Office, in a super bantamweight world title unification fight in which both the IBF and WBA Super titles are on the line.
News of the attendance for the fight comes after tickets on general sale were snapped up in under 10 minutes on Friday.
Waiting on official times but SOLD OUT in under 10 mins! #Quiggframpton

The golden tickets went on sale at 9am and by 09:06 there were social media posts reporting that the general capacity of 9,000 tickets was gone.
With the 9,000 general sale tickets accounted for, there are roughly 10,000 further tickets up for grabs and they will be spread across the undercard, which is expected to be handed 1000 tickets, Fight Pass members and the two fighters.by
