Hatton Pacquiao sell out inevitable in fan fight of the year

No surprise that 'The Battle of East and West', the super-fight between Manny "Pac Man" Pacquiao and Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton on May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas has officially sold out. No surprise either that 50,000 closed circuit tickets are being made available at the Mandalay Bay, Mirage, TI, Monte Carlo, Circus Circus, Luxor and New York-New York.

"Given that the live gate for this event is sold out, coupled with the sellout of tonight's San Francisco Giants baseball game where Manny is the guest of honor, indicates to me that 'The Battle of East and West' is on track to break all existing pay-per-view records," said Bob Arum, Chairman of Top Rank.

Tickets for the closed circuit telecast will be priced at $50, not including handling fees. All seats are general admission and are now on sale at each individual property's box office outlets. Ticket sales are limited to eight per person.

It is hard to imagine that numbers will reach the 30,000 Hatton fans who travelled out to see the light-welterweight fight Floyd Mayweather Jnr in December 2007. At present, estimates range between 10,000 and 15,000 fans travelling. Many will be watching back home on Sky Box Office. When Hatton fought Mayweather, it broke all records as having the most buys ever on pay per view in the UK, reaching the 1.2 million mark. It will be interesting to see whether promoter Bob Arum is correct in his prediction.
