Finally, Mayweather-Pacquiao Tickets On Sale
The May 2 fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao is now official, as tickets are on sale.
A late-morning conference call finally resolved outstanding issues and ended the dispute among Top Rank, Mayweather Promotions and MGM that had placed the historic bout at risk.
“We resolved all of the issues and now we’re waiting for the paperwork,” Bob Arum, Chairman of Top Rank, said. “I said on the call that if what we agreed upon is in the paperwork we receive, we will sign it and the tickets will be released.”
A release was issued announcing ticket sales. After days of wrangling and bickering, all parties have signed the contract.
The fight is expected to be the highest-grossing in history, with both Mayweather and Pacquiao expected to rake in more than $100 million.
Tickets for the fight cost $10,000, $7,500, $5,000, $3,500, $2,500 and $1,500, all of which will go on sale Thursday at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m PT. They can be purchased at mgmgrand.com, ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-300.
Buyers are limited to four tickets per person. However, $10,000 tickets are not available for public purchase. Tickets will be required for the weigh-in before the fight, with each costing $10 and proceeds going to charity.
Also according to Yahoo, the closed circuit viewing will be available at all the MGM Resorts properties around the world. It will also be available at the Bellagio, the MGM, Vdara, Aria, The Signature, Delano, Mandalay Bay, Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Excalibur, Luxor and Circus Circus in Las Vegas.
