When tickets went on sale Tuesday, March 12 for the May 4 May Day Showtime PPV featuring Floyd “Money” Mayweather against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., the public responded with a massive rush to the box office and online ticket outlets. Within twelve hours of going on sale, less than 1,500 seats remained for the Cinco de Mayo weekend event.
It’s obvious fans are clamoring to see boxing’s biggest attraction, Mayweather, return to the ring against the determined, hard-hitting Guerrero in addition to a second world championship bout between WBC Featherweight World Champion Daniel Ponce de Leon and Two-Division World Champion Abner Mares as well as a soon to be announced roster of top flight undercard action.
“Boxing fans know what they get when they purchase a ticket to a Floyd Mayweather fight,” said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO Mayweather Promotions.
“Floyd is the biggest attraction in the sport and the public has responded with a brisk buying pace which has led to tickets almost being sold out in one day. This will be another great night for all of those lucky enough to be in the arena for another Mayweather experience.”
“This is a testament to the interest in Floyd Mayweather and, I believe, in the inspirational story of Robert Guerrero and his will to win both in boxing and in life,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO Golden Boy Promotions.
“Tickets sold quickly and without reservation for this blockbuster event on the Cinco de Mayo weekend as sports fans understand the magnitude of what it means to be a part of this tremendous night of boxing.”
Of course, gauging real fan interest, against how many thousands of tickets the promoters have locked up and give to ticket agencies and sponsors and who knows what else, is sometimes difficult. Nevertheless, the available lot of tickets is disappearing, and they’re moving fast.
