September 22 2016
Matchroom Boxing and the IBF World Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua MBE have both agreed to extend their long-standing partnerships with the world’s largest ticket marketplace, StubHub.
Matchroom Boxing and Anthony Joshua will continue to transparently list face value tickets on StubHub. StubHub will also serve as the Official Ticket Marketplace for all Matchroom Boxing and Anthony Joshua fights. StubHub will continue to have a broad range of branding, digital, social and activation rights, including access to Anthony for promotional video content, building on the success of the No Hype video released in November 2015.
