If you're going to a fight, and you're sitting at the back, what's it like?

    I'm head to spurs stadium for the fight, but I'm basically right at the back.

    Anyone got any experience in a big stadium for a boxing match?

    Will I be able to see **** and/or will the screens show the fight well enough?

    Cheers.

    Rubbish IMO. If you're with a group of lads and its a night out, it's okay, but if you want to see all the details of the fight and all of the intricate things that go on it's better just to watch it on TV, you just end up watching the screen above the ring if you are too far back. The stadium is amazing though, the bar is really swanky even for the away football fans.

    Take a watch of Romesh and Rob vs Anthony Joshua. Believe poor, but its being able to say your were there and the atmosphere I guess.

    Not been at a stadium at the back, but bought last minute tickets for Whyte v Chisora 2 at the O2 and was right at the back
    Was horrendous. Not just the view but the people around me.

    Bring Binoculars! You might actually see something

    Probably a poor view but the atmosphere will be good. The experience overall will be fun.

    Exactly my thoughts. Someone else brought them for me.

    My family have been bugging me to see a fight for a while, but I always imagined it would just be better watching on TV.

    Didn't realise until today the tickets are basically right at the back.... lol.

    If you want to see the boxing then its the worst but if you're not that bothered and just want to get pissed and chant then you'll have a great time.

    Honestley you're better off selling them and watching it down the pub.

    What about the screens though? Will there not be screens to help us see it?

    I've seen people with binoculars in these stadiums. I can't imagine that it would be very good - a bit stressful if you're really keen on seeing it, but the screens should help and you will be able to enjoy the atmosphere.

    I’m imagining terrible but there for the atmosphere I suppose

    I’m pissed off as I had pretty good tickets (back of block 105 in the wheelchair area). But got an email last week saying they were no longer available due to “production changes by the event owner”. The only other wheelchair accessible tickets are higher up and ****…I’m now at the bottom of tier 2 and expecting to be able to see Jack ****…

    Absolutely no response to my complaints from Spurs or matchroom, a joke. Considering the legal route as seems a **** take to reduce the capacity for fans with access requirements for some fireworks for AJ…

    If you type in THSC 3D seat map on google you can actually check out the view.

    The ground has four large screens in each corner, but I'd imagine you'd want to keep your head pointing in the direction of the ring and look at the smaller screens directly above. Binoculars are a good idea, even if you don't use them, it's good to have the option. Just buy a cheaper pair off Amazon, that way you can leave them there or not worry if they get broken
