Tickets for Joseph Parker's world title fight in Auckland about to go on sale

Public tickets for Kiwi heavyweight boxer Joseph Parker's world title fight against Andy Ruiz are set to go on sale at midday.

After announcing earlier this week they had secured the fight to take place in Parker's backyard at Vector Arena in Auckland, Duco Events Chief Executive Martin Snedden said general admission tickets would start from a price of $99.

"Considering the uniqueness of this event, I think it's a pretty fair starting point," Mr Snedden said.

"Like any event, it'll cost more depending on the quality of the seating."

Duco Events has elected to go with Ticketmaster for distribution of sales.

Approximately 8000 tickets for the December 10 fight will be open to the general public from noon today.

Meanwhile, Snedden told Fairfax up to 85 per cent of available seating zones, which feature 124 corporate tables seating 10 clients along as well as 11 elevated boxes that could accommodate 15-20 people, had already been purchased by corporates for the fight.

"We haven't seen anything like this before. We have been staggered by the interest in it," he said.

"We're racking our brains to see if we can squeeze any more in but there are limitations."

Pay-per-view prices for the fight have yet to be announced.
