Mayweather vs Mosley: Big Boxing Fight, But Hot Ticket?

There’s no doubt that this weekends bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas between Floyd Mayweather and Shane Mosley is the most anticipated of 2010. I expect it to do robust pay-per-view numbers. My guess is between 1.5-2 million buys. However, if you go on the various ticket brokering websites, ticket sales have been sluggish, to say the least.

Tickets seem to be available at all the price ranges and the word around the industry is that they aren’t doing robust business at the box-office. Here’s what I’m told, first of all, the tickets were over-priced at $1,250, $1,000, $600, $300 and $150. And if you look at the seating charts for the prices you’re paying, well, lets just say this, $600 doesn’t get you the view it used to. But plenty of tickets are available, don’t let anyone tell you differently.

I think again, the deal the promoters (in this case Golden Boy/Mayweather Promotions) cut with the ticket brokers has really come to hurt the ability and affordability of the general public to buy entry into the fight.

I have a feeling that a lot of tickets will be available for right around face value as you get closer and closer to this fight.
