LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
What may be the hottest ticket in Las Vegas right now will go on sale this week.

Two of the world’s greatest boxers, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao will meet May 2 in a welterweight showdown at the MGM Grand.

During an interview on FOX5 Sports Plus on Sunday night, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said tickets would go on sale this week, but he would not confirm which day.

When asked how many tickets would be available, Ellerbe only responded, “Quite a few.”

Entry-level tickets to what is being billed as the richest fight in history are reportedly starting at $1,500, and high-end seats will go for $7,500. Sources in the secondary market told FOX5’s Jon Castagnino that floor seats could fetch over $50,000 each.

Ellerbe said the contract between MGM and the promoters regarding details like ticket allotment and hotel rooms for each fighter’s camps have not been finalized.

“We are working through things, and everything will get done in its due course of time,” Ellerbe said.

According to Vegas.com, rooms at the MGM Grand during fight weekend are averaging $1,684 per night.

Mayweather could earn $120 million or more from the fight’s purse, while Pacquiao’s split will likely be about $80 million.

“LET’S PLAY TWO!”

MANNY PACQUIAO vs. TIMOTHY BRADLEY, JR.
WORLD WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP REMATCH

Saturday, April 12 at MGM Grand
Presented Live by HBO Pay-Per-View®

Los Angeles and New York News Conferences
Tuesday, February 4 and Thursday, February 6

NEW YORK (January 25, 2014) – Bob Arum and Todd duBoef, CEO and President of Top Rank, respectively, and Michael Koncz of MP Promotions are pleased to announce that an agreement was reached today for undefeated two-division world champion TIMOTHY “Desert Storm” BRADLEY to defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title against Fighter of the Decade Congressman MANNY “Pacman” PACQUIAO. Promoted by Top Rank®, in association with MP Promotions and Tecate, Pacquiao-Bradley 2 will take place, Saturday, April 12, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. It will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View.

Both fighters and their teams will embark on a U.S. media tour the week of February 3, including press conferences in Los Angeles and New York on Tuesday, February 4 and Thursday, February 6, respectively. Ticket information and other details on the promotion and the media tour will be released shortly.

When Pacquiao and Bradley rumbled the first time, on June 9, 2012 at the MGM Grand, Bradley’s hand was raised via a controversial split decision, ending Pacquiao’s welterweight title reign as well as his seven-year, 15-bout winning streak. Though both fighters claimed victory neither was satisfied. Destiny may have played a hand in their first battle but it will be survival of the fittest that determines the winner of this exciting rematch.

Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KOs), the lone congressional representative from the Sarangani province in the Philippines (he was reelected to a second term, running unopposed last year), is the only fighter to win eight world titles in as many different weight divisions. A three-time Fighter of the Year and the Boxing Writers Association of America’s “Fighter of the Decade,” Pacquiao’s resumé features victories over future Hall of Famers, including Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, Miguel Cotto, Shane Mosley and Juan Manuel Márquez. From 2008 to 2010, five of his seven victories were world title victories in five different weight classes, from 130 to 154 pounds. No active boxer has sold more live tickets in the U.S. than Pacquiao, who is also credited with over eight million pay-per-view buys. He returns to the ring after a scintillating beatdown of former world champion Brandon Rios.

Bradley (31-0, 12 KOs), from Palm Springs, Calif., a two-division world champion who unified the junior welterweight titles twice during his previous four-year reign, returns to the ring after three consecutive career-best victories. After moving up in weight and beating Pacquiao in 2012, Bradley co-starred in the 2013 Fight of the Year last March, winning a brutal 12-round decision over Ruslan Provodnikov though Bradley was suffering from a concussion throughout most of the fight. In his most recent fight, in October, Bradley gave a virtuoso performance in defeating three-division world champion and Mexican icon Juan Manuel Márquez proving that Bradley is indeed one of boxing’s elite pound for pound fighters.
