Watching the fight of the century, the much-awaited boxing fight of undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr and Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, comes with a price – as much as USD141,000 a ticket.
Boxing fans, however, did not mind the cost of the tickets to watch the fight on 2 May at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as the 1,000 tickets that were made available to public sold out in just a matter of minutes.
The most expensive ticket was priced at USD141,000 while the cheapest was USD1,500 based on the first posting on the website. When the tickets sold out, there were those who offered their tickets for an average price of USD7,500 a piece.
The tickets for the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight were only officially posted on Thursday on the MGM Grand’s website and Ticketmaster, which means the fight is all set to go.
Before the tickets officially went on sale, there were those who said that the fight may not push through because the tickets were not available even if it was only nine days before the big fight.
Only 1,000 tickets were available to the public because the remaining 15,500 seats at the MGM Grand will go to fighters, sponsors and promoters.
Meanwhile, Pacquiao stressed that he does not feel intimidated nor scared for even a little bit in his fight against the undefeated Mayweather.
Pacquiao said he is contented with his training at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, California and is ready to battle it out with his American opponent on the ring.
“I know what to do when I face him (Mayweather) inside the ring,” Pacquiao told reporters.
Pacquiao said he is set and ready for the fight and urged his fans not to worry on fight day because he has prepared for the big fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Pacquiao also stressed that he is not impressed by the undefeated record of Mayweather. – BusinessNewsAsia.com
