Do you know how much is the cost of ticket for Pacquiao-Mosley fight? Well, i managed to get data: Tickets were priced at $1,000, $750, and $300, and are limited to 10 to a person. Guess what despite the high cost the tickets are selling like it’s Manny Pacquiao’s farewell fight.
“Incredible. Simply incredible,” said Top Rank chief and promotional guru Bob Arum yesterday after 16,000 tickets to the May 7 fight between Pacquiao and Shane Mosley were sold inside three hours.
It was like selling 88 tickets a minute or easily one for every second.
“I have never promoted a fight that has sold so many tickets so quickly,” Arum told philboxing.com upon hearing the news of what may be considered as panic-buying for tickets to the coming fight.
The fight is set at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The selling of the tickets was described as “one of the biggest ticket runs in Las Vegas boxing history.”
With tickets almost gone, the pay-per-view sales, over Showtime, will be the next target.
