Check out these ticket prices: Tickets



Interesting. I seriously doubt the tickets have actually been printed and/or of course, available as mentioned to the general public. I assume this ticket broker is just taking reservations hoping or knowing? they can make some money on the spread. Naturally, as often happens including the last Super Bowl, people end up without tickets and in some instances don't get their money back. I've be very careful dealing with a broker this early and in my case, at all. Let the casino comp you a ticket or two. If you are a big enough player should be no problem. How big?

How big a player for a comp room and tickets to this fight?

My guess......$100,000. credit line with a history of paying your debts and $1000.usd average bet not counting odds on the craps table. But what is the real number? Anyone know?

Will either of these fighters visit Sonny Liston's grave to pay there respect ? Sonny's last fight was against Chuck Wepner, the original Rocky. After the fight The Bayonne Bleeder need 72 stitches in his face. Chuck also lost to Mohammed Ali as well as Andre the Giant.

Anyone care to handicap the fight?



Mayweather sticks and moves his way to a decision. The early money has come in on Pacquaio dropping the line down to Mayweather -200, Pacquaio +170. But I think the smart money is waiting for the line to drop even further.

Last big fight I was contacted by MGM host, Robert D., you are about right, well over $100k LOC or FM and an average wager within the MGM family of anywhere from $2.5 to $5k average wager depending on theo, game played and win/loss, etc. I am not much of a fight fan, guess I had my share in the Bronx and East New York/Bed Sty, anyways. But you are about right.

Supposedly the #1 and the #6 boxes today, pound for pound. That is what I gather from the lists I read, but I am not a boxing expert by any means. I will say the clear underdog will take the fight because of his drive and motivation more so than Mr. Mouth.

How far in advance do they announce who the judges for the fight will be?

My gut says that, while Mayweather is going to appear to win a clear decision, this is going to end up a draw. (If it is a draw, the Vegas books still treat all bets on either boxer to win as pushes (I know some overseas books treat a draw as "all bets on either fighter lose" if betting on a draw was available), in addition to paying off the bets on a draw, right?)

Then again, my other gut tells me that something is going to happen before May 2 and this fight isn't going to take place as scheduled.

This fight is strictly controlled by the $$$. Nothing else matters and nothing else will prevail, it is 110% about the $$$ not the sport. Period. Done.
