MGM says tickets are still available for Pacquiao-Mayweather fight
In contrast to earlier reports, tickets for for the much awaited super fight of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are still available.
According to MGM Grand spokesperson Yvette Monet,the Las Vegas hotel was nowhere near being sold out. It could have been a computer glitch that made it look like they ran out of tickets.
“A computer glitch made it appear the host MGM Grand was sold out for May 1 and May 2 minutes after the announcement that Mayweather would fight Pacquiao, but the hotel was busily putting the word out Friday night that it has plenty of rooms available for the event’s weekend,” Martin Rogers said in his report to USA Today.
Earlier, Mayweather revealed on Friday (Saturday in Manila) that he and boxing champ Pacquiao already signed a deal for the most bankable bout in boxing history.
