Further tickets have been released to the public for the upcoming heavyweight world championship boxing clash between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury after what organisers have claimed as overwhelming demand for the fight.

Staples Center in Los Angeles will host the fight, which is being presented by the Premier Boxing Champions organisation, on December 1.

 The newly released tickets are priced at $125 (£98/€110) and $75, and are on sale now.

 Next month’s fight has been labelled as the most significant heavyweight event in the US in more than 15 years.

 American WBC champion Wilder has 39 knockouts in 40 professional fights, including knockouts in all seven of his title defences.

 Fury is a former IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight world champion. The Briton is undefeated in 27 professional fights and holds boxing’s lineal heavyweight title.
