Dispute Resolved Over Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight Tickets
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A dispute over tickets to the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao fight was settled Wednesday, clearing the way for a limited number of seats to be sold to the public.
A conference call between the rival camps — with CBS head honcho Les Moonves serving as a mediator — resolved the dispute over millions of dollars in tickets, said Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum. The battle held up the sale of about 500 tickets to the general public and the release of thousands of others to ticket brokers and others.
There was no word from the MGM on when the tickets would be put on sale, but Mayweather's promoter, Leonard Ellerbe, said it would likely be Thursday.
