Could never get into boxing.... Seems like a cool event and historic though.

you think anyone goes, and if so, will it outsell the normal Sox game?

I'm going. I've been to several 8 count productions Boxing events at the UIC Pavilion. They're a good time. These aren't amateur fighters, they're pros so the skill set is pretty great.

Also, here is the seating chart for those interested.

Agreed. Already bought tickets actually. Fonfara and Szpilka have drawn some impressive and rowdy crowds at the UIC Pavilion due the large Polish population in Chicago.

The Artur Szpilka vs. Mike Mollo fight in January was probably the most exciting live event I've attended all year (eager to see the rematch).

But it's going to be damn cool to be at the Cell to watch this. This might be a future venue for boxing if it draws well (as has already happened with the UIC Pavilion).

Will A.J. Pierzynski and Michael Barret be on the undercard?

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I knew Joe Louis won the Heavyweight crown at Comiskey Park, but didn't know about Liston.

Mentioned this before but I was a vendor in 1962 and worked the Patterson-Liston fight in September. Some very irate customers that night as the fight was over before the first round ended.

In a wilder era, wrestling was once a South Side tradition at the old place.

Sugar Ray Robinson and Jake LaMotta also had one of their fights in old Comiskey.

Sounds cool. I don't follow boxing at all but if I had time/money to spare I'd consider going to this this summer.

A picture of the ring. Looks like it is being set up at home plate:
