Mayweather vs Pacquiao tickets: 250K line of credit for ringside?Hot
There will be few freebies for Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao on May 2nd.
So unless you're well-connected - really well-connected - expect to pay the full price.
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told ESPN 1100 Radio earlier today:
"Nobody is going to get these tickets without paying for them."
"The type of calls I'm getting, it's unbelievable. I could spend the rest of the day on the phone and sell out the entire place."
"The biggest block [of tickets] is with MGM. When I get a call from a celebrity, or I assume when Mayweather gets a call from a celebrity, we immediately send them to MGM and tell them to fill the order."
Also, if you're thinking about ringside seats, make sure you have a quarter of a million dollar line of credit.
"Because of the price of the tickets, MGM, for example, will only give ringside tickets to its customers who have a $250,000 line of credit."
Due to the immense popularity of the fight and the purses of the principles, it's no surprise promoters are being mega strict as it relates to comps and the priciest tickets.
Let's face it, all of the tickets are 'high money.'
