The Khan/Garcia fight only sold 3,000 tickets, unless it has a packed undercard this will be lucky to reach 2,000.

The crowd for Garcia was 6000, 3000 of which we're given away, that leave's only 3000 sold.

Out of them 3000 i bet half of them we're people in Vegas that weekend for different reason's and decided to go see it and bought cheaper tickets

Khan doesn't sell tickets in the US, which is why GBP put the Peterson fight in DC in the first place.

Because he does not have a decent following here, only the hard core boxing fans know of him and most hav fallen off his train.

Espinoza is just a yes man to Golden Boy these days...

Showtime were the only US broadcaster who accepted this.

Lol at Khan fans trying to make out this is some sort of amazing deal for Khan. HBO obviously offered him less money than they did previously, not surprisingly and he's just lost two fights in a row and continues to make himself look a complete bellend in public
