Pacquiao-Mosley, 16,000 sold in three hours on released date

The Pacquiao-Mosley boxing bout sold 16,000 tickets in the three hours when first released to the public on January 31 2011

The Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley boxing bout will take place on on May 7 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand for the WBO welterweigth title. Arum says Pacquiao chose the bout because Mosley is the most accomplished and famous boxer in the field of candidates, which included Juan Manuel Marquez and welterweight champion Andre Berto.

“He’s the most recognizable name, and it’s a difficult fight for him,” said Arum, who met with Pacquiao in the Philippines last week. “People are also saying, ‘Well, why hasn’t he fought an African-American fighter?’ He’s doing that, but mostly it’s because Mosley is the biggest name.”

The Pacquiao-Mostley boxing match is one of the biggest ticket runs in Las Vegas boxing history. On January 31 2011 when the tickets were released to the public between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. PT, 16,000 tickets were sold to the Manny Pacquiao vs. Sugar Shane Mosley world welterweight championship. Barely 1,000 seats remain for Pacquiao’s return to the Fight Capital of the World, where he hasn’t fought since 2009.

“Incredible. Simply incredible,” exclaimed Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum when he heard the news today. “I have never promoted a fight that has sold so many tickets so quickly. Manny Pacquiao never ceases to amaze the world with his achievements. The excitement he generated today with the initial ticket sales makes it feel like fight week already!”
