Boxing fans have only days to wait to secure their tickets for New Zealand's much anticipated heavyweight 'Fight of the Century'.

Public sale will begin on June 12, following four days of presale to Visa card holders and Hamilton and Waikato residents.

Promoter David Higgins of Duco Events warned that tickets, priced between $69 and $399, were limited to 4,000 and punters should get in quick to avoid disappointment.

He says at least 1000 tickets will be priced between $69 and $99 ensuring the fight isn't out of reach for the average Kiwi fight fan.

"The bout will be the only chance to see New Zealand's two premier heavyweight boxers of the modern era in the ring together - we want to make this huge occasion as accessible as we can," said Mr Higgins.

The Shane Cameron/David Tua bout at Hamilton's Mystery Creek on October 3 is set to be a star-studded evening of non-stop entertainment.

Duco Events has secured Shane 'CHOPPA' Chapman vs Soulan Pownceby for a Light Heavyweight bout and Robert Berrich vs Harry Venka for a Middleweight bout.

Bonnie Pointer of the famed 'Pointer Sisters' who sang at the 'Rumble in the Jungle' will take the stage at the 'Fight of the Century'.

Colonel Bob Sheridan, arguably the world's leading boxing commentator will travel from Las Vegas to call the fights.

Higgins says the exclusive Hamilton presale, available at Waikato Ticketek agencies on June 10 and 11, is a way of thanking Hamiltonians for their support of the event.

"From the word go Hamilton got in behind this bout - we think it's only fair to give people from the area a first chance to secure their tickets."

Those on the Ticketek waiting list will also get a chance to purchase tickets during this period.

From June 8 to 9, Visa card holders can purchase premium tickets including diamond seating with a two hour food and beverage package, and gold and silver floor and grandstand seating.

Every seat in the venue will have a premium view of the live Tua-Cameron action and four giant screens will be placed above the ring as well as in other locations throughout the venue. For more information or tickets for The Fight of the Century visit:
