Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao’s super fight only took 60 seconds to sell out on ticketmaster

There’s only a little over a week to go before we get to witness one of the most talked about fights in modern boxing. The undefeated Floyd Mayweather and superstar Manny Pacquiao go head to head for the first time after literal years of speculation. Some people believe the fight is being over hyped because the men are past their prime, but that didn’t stop the event from becoming sold out in ridiculous time!

Are these two men past their prime? Only time will tell, one thing that we know for sure is they can draw a crowd. The tickets were incredibly expensive to begin with but it didn’t stop the public from going crazy to get them. There were only 500 tickets made available to the average Joe, so you can understand why the feeding frenzy happened.

There were tickets on sale for $7,500 and it took less than a minute to get rid of them! I’ve never had $7,500 to throw at a computer screen but I can’t imagine it would take me less than 60 seconds to do so.

The two biggest stars in the sport will take to the ring on May 2nd and I for one can’t wait! They may be past their best and all that, but it’s genuinely been the only reason to get excited about boxing in the past few years. Whatever happens there’s going to be headlines and excitement!

This is the fight the public have been craving for years, and we’re finally about to witness history in the making. Will Mayweather keep his unbeaten record and cement his place among the greatest of all time, or can Pac-Man blow his record right out of the water?

There are so many questions yet to be answered, one thing is for sure and that’s saddening realization that I’ll be struggling to get the $100 PPV let alone the $7,500 event tickets.

Don’t worry folks, the second hand sales have begun online and you can get tickets for up to $80,000. That’s right, more than your parents bought their first house for. Have fun explaining to your accountant that you dropped the guts of $100,000 on a fight.
