NHS staff to get free tickets for Boxing match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

According to a report from Sky Sports, Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has promised free tickets to the NHS staff fighting the coronavirus pandemic, for all his major shows for 12 months from when the sporting action resumes. That includes a heavyweight title bout between Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev, which is penned down to take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

All major sporting events have been suspended and postponed until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic that has rocked the world. That includes Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight title defence against Pulev. Initially, the bout was scheduled to take place in June later this year.

It will be Joshua’s first fight in the UK since 2018 when he defeated Alexander Povetkin at Wembley. The Sun has reported that a decision on whether the event will go ahead as planned will be taken next week.

Irrespective of when the event takes place, Eddie Hearn has promised free tickets to NHS staff with Matchroom Boxing donating 200 tickets per show, including the clash between Joshua and Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

As quoted by Sky Sports, Hearn said:

“They’ve been absolutely amazing and from our side at Matchroom Boxing we are announcing a new scheme for when we get back to our live shows where we will be giving away 200 tickets to NHS workers for every Saturday Fight Night and pay-per-view show around the country from hopefully this summer forward.”
