Pacquiao-Mayweather tickets sell out in a minute
Just like that, the most coveted boxing tickets in the world are gone.
Before anyone could say “Manny Pacquiao versus Floyd Mayweather Jr.” all available tickets for the May 2 mega fight were sold out.
According to TMZ all tickets that Ticketmaster put on sale sold out immediately.
It took nearly a month to straighten out the ticket deal, and the contract itself, between Top Rank, Mayweather Promotions and MGM.
It took a major nudge from CBS Corporation CEO Leslie Moonves and Senator Harry Reid (Democrat-Nevada) to finalize the fight contract of the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena to unify the WBO, WBC, and WBA Welterweight titles in a match of this era’s greatest pound-for-pound boxers.
Tickets ranged from $1,500 to $7,500 and only 500 were up for public selling.
Anyone looking for tickets in the arena can try their luck, and moolah, in the secondary market which sells the tickets for an absurd $80,000. DPL
