    AT THE MGM GRAND GARDEN ARENA SELL OUT IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS

    LAS VEGAS CLOSED CIRCUIT TICKETS GO ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 28

    LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2013 - As soon as the September 14 showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez was announced, it became the biggest fight of 2013 and the hottest ticket in town. How hot? Less than 24 hours after going on sale on Tuesday, every ticket to the highly anticipated fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena was sold, confirming that when it comes to "THE ONE," which will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV, the entire world will be watching.
    In response to the rapid live gate sellout, Mayweather Promotions, Golden Boy Promotions, Canelo Promotions and MGM Resorts International are pleased to announce that six MGM Resorts properties will host live closed circuit telecasts of "THE ONE." Properties showcasing the event include ARIA, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Monte Carlo and New York-New York.

Tickets for closed circuit viewing at MGM Grand go on sale Friday, June 28 at 3:00 p.m. ET/Noon PT. Information regarding availability of closed circuit tickets at the five other properties will be announced in the near future.
    "This sell out doesn't surprise me because this is what happens when the best fights the best," said Mayweather. "I want to thank all the fans for their support. They're going to see a hell of a show on September 14, whether it's at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, on closed circuit in Las Vegas or on SHOWTIME Pay-Per-View."
    "Thank you to everyone who bought tickets to this event," said Alvarez. "I know I will have plenty of support in the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 14. This is the biggest night of my career, I will be at my best for it and I will win."
    "We're truly excited that the fans have spoken," said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. "This is a tremendous fight and the quick sellout is another indication that this is the fight fans want to see. Both fighters thank the fans for their tremendous support."
    "The demand for tickets, even before they went on sale, was unprecedented," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "This is the fight the world wanted, we gave it to the fans, and they responded. September 14 will be the biggest night boxing has seen in years. We urge fans to get their closed circuit tickets before they sell out as well!"

    You think Floyd could do a non ppv on CBS , and command Super Bowl advertising prices ? A half million for 30 sec commercial? If it is all possible gift the masses with a " free fight" and help. The sport of boxing. Just a dream I suppose it would never happen.

    Nothing too unique here.... Scalpers always buy out these mega events.


    TSS should do a piece on boxing minimum wage. Do an article on how one of the most wealthiest fight cards this year will still be paying some of it's employees a measly poverty wage. Try to make sense of how some boxers participating on this card won't even be able to afford a room at the MGM Grand Hotel Casino. Swirl that around your mind wash rinse laundry style, boxing fans.

    The Swiss banker will be smoking 100 dollar bills in the penthouse at the MGM. Golden Boy should hook some employees up with some bonuses

    C'mon, SP! Those rooms are for the big ballers, shot callers, high rollers, high-risk gambling players and five-thousand-a-night stayers. The prelim fighters -- with no hookup -- don't get expense money and free rooms. That is the bounce of the ball. From heaven, freebies and money doesn't fall. Holla!

    Lmfao@ all the big balling, high rolling comments (including Deep's cigar reference) but I ain't even talking up suites. MGM is currently offering up a room they call the petite king. 350 square feet ....most certainly a notch above the standard but by no means Swiss Banker status stay. If you stayed in this room from Friday thru fight night Saturday...checking out Sunday morning all bruise and lumped up.... Your bill for the room alone is going to be in the gouging neighborhood of over $1,400.00 (if I book this tomorrow -- starts at $100.00 then of course goes up on Saturday). So if you're a fighter on the non televised card ... making 3 g's....half your earnings is now gone. Anyhow, y'all are smart boxing brethren .... You can figure it out....but just find it filthy digusting myself.

    It ain't just a simple bounce of a ball.... More like someone ball hogging and traveling his *** not only across the court but out of the arena...straight back to his Swiss banking cronies to make a deposit with some heavy duty boxing loot.
