  • Comments Thread For: Crawford-Jean Venue Nears Sold Out Status At Box Office

    Terence Crawford's upcoming 12-round showdown with Dierry Jean will play to another capacity crowd at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

    "Tickets are virtually sold," confirmed Hall-of-Fame promoter Bob Arum of the event, with the aforementioned super lightweight title fight airing live Saturday evening on HBO. "Because it's a big arena (upwards of 11,000 for a boxing event), we can accommodate everbody in the upper seats. The top ticket prices are gone."

    It may seem like a given due to Crawford's popularity in his hometown, but this one comes with a level of apprecation considering the Nebraska Cornhuskers host Northwester in a nationally televised college football game just an hour away in Lincoln, Nebraska.

    "We're lucky the Nebraska team is playing early in the afternoon so everyone can watch that game and then come over to the fights," noted Arum. "Omaha is very supportive of Terence. When you build a fighter and create a market demand in his hometown, the local fans respond. The fans have responded, without anyone having to give anything away." [Click Here To Read More]

    The last piece of the puzzle is in place....ArScum paying big money to get Crawford into the media. Notice all of a sudden Crawford being in multiple headlines? That costs money. Crawford is fighting Pac and ArScum gets to double dip

      He doesn't deserve a Pac fight. Let him beat Postol, John and Broner first.

        He doesnt deserve to fight my mailman. But ArScum will make more money with Crawford being the opponent than any of the others. So how do YOU think its gonna play out?

          Crawford is a good fighter. Postol or Broner. I want Postol to beat up Broner.

              When the champion fights at home, it's not up to the opponent to sell the fight. Selling out Nebraska has to be way harder than Manchester UK. A lot less people.
