By Dan Ambrose: Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions is hoping to get additional seating opening up for the October 18th fight between WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) and Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1, 51 KOs) at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
The tickets have reportedly sold out for the fight, so Loeffler is looking to add bleacher seats so that more tickets can be sold. There’s still three weeks to go before the fight, and they can sell a lot more tickets before then.
“Met with @StubHubCenter yesterday, trying to figure out how to add more tix for Oct 18 for @gggboxing vs @MAVenenoRubio on @HBOboxing,” Loeffler said on his twitter.
In hindsight, Loeffler should have opted for a bigger venue than the StubHub Center, which has a seating capacity of 27,000. But Loeffler had no way of knowing that there would be this kind of demand for the tickets for the fight.
Rubio is obviously pulling in a lot of fans from the area, and a lot of new fans want to see Golovkin fight with his “Mexican Style”, which is what they’ve named the fight card.
