Tickets for Carl Frampton's title unification fight with Scott Quigg sold out within minutes of going on sale on Friday.
Tickets for the February 27 fight at the Manchester Arena went on sale at 9am.
Waiting on official times but SOLD OUT in under 10 mins! #Quiggframpton— Eddie Hearn (@EddieHearn) November 20, 2015
Within 10 minutes they were gone.
Fans flooded social media celebrating their success while many others vented their frustration.
"I'm the better fighter in every department," insisted Frampton, at the press conference at the Europa Hotel.
"I have to say that I have the best fans in the world. I could never have imagined when I started out that it would get as big as this and I feel very honoured and privileged to have the support that I do - we'll be taking over Manchester come February 27.
"I know that I can make this fight very easy for myself if I am smart."
Frampton's manager Barry McGuigan said: "We will have the most support on February 27, it will feel like Belfast and if he thinks it will not be then he's deluding himself - he doesn't have the support that Carl has. When we walk in there on February 27 it will feel like we're boxing in the SSE Arena.
"It's a massive attraction, so much so that the Manchester Arena have said that including concerts, no other event has had interest like it."
Not a single ticket to see Carl Frampton aw well, the bar it is then. Hopefully a good few Frampton fans got sorted.— Craig Lamrock (@lamrock52) November 20, 2015
