Mayweather / McGregor Fight Suffering Sluggish Ticket Sales?


Just days before the big fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor and thousands of tickets are still available....

From The Las Vegas Sun
Just four days to fight night, there are plenty of tickets still available in the T-Mobile Arena, which seats 18,000 for boxing, and prices on the secondary market are starting to come down.
Ticketmaster has hundreds of non-VIP tickets ranging from roughly $1,400 to $17,000
The MGM Grand has cut its prices for the weekend three times, with a two-night stay now at $329 a night. Rooms at several other hotels on the Strip can still be found for $200 or less a night.
Restaurants, bars and strip clubs around town will also show the fight. Closed-circuit seats are available at various MGM properties, including hundreds for $150 each at the Park Theater just a few steps from the T-Mobile arena itself. 
By comparison, Mayweather-Pacquiao closed-circuit tickets sold out the day they went on sale.

GIRRRL BYE people got bills to pay. Even the rich ones have better things to do then watch a staged fight. We aint fallin' for it again.

Thank you for covering this, Snitch. People have enough to worry about with the fluctuating markets and now talk of bank deregulation which could lead to another 2008 while banks collect larger fees. Who the hell wants to see two f*ckbois barely touch each other for fear of ruining their pretty faces.

^^^You're both correct. Who would spend money on a staged fight OR $89 for the Pay-Per-View when they both suck? People have utility bills, gas or Metro Passes to buy, and back to school snacks for the kids. The fight is gonna be wack.

Snitch missed the bigger story that NO ONE is talking about. One of the many promoters of this event went off script in Toronto last weekend in front of media saying the fight was fixed, blah blah, blah......well that ni66a was killed on Monday, gunned down in his keep in either D.C. or NY..... #mafia

I troll it like I see it said...

Ain't nobody checking for these fake ass "sports games" they are all rigged and fixed. Folks got bills to pay.

3:57 what in the what? Let me do my Googles because I love a good mystery. Please tell me it's not rigged in favor of the suspected white supremacist McGregor?

i'm glad folks are not throwing their money on this BS...$1400 for NON VIP??? Who pays that? I heard sales are down on sneakers over $150 too...KEEP IT UP BLACK FOLKS, INVEST IN YOURSELVES AND EACH OTHER!!!

I dated a guy who went to the Mayweather Pacquaio fight in May 2015. His nosebleed ticket was $2500 and while I went with him to Vegas ... he straight up told me I would not be going! He was so disappointed in that fight and others were too who paid money to watch it on PPV. People are tired of seeing these celebrities floss in our face off our expense. That's why social media is a blessing and a curse, I suppose.

While I'm happy that people are being wasteful on finances, I just read where credit card debt is UP again to record levels. I hope that's white people's doing and not us!

Eh it is what it is🤷🏿‍♂️ Floyd is gonna do his usual bunny hop around the ring, and I just don't like the white boy. Fuck em both. May they both get disqualified👍🏿

Nobody wants to see these 2 midgets bouncing around the ring. We need a new Mike Tyson...a Roy Jones Jr....an Arturo Gatti.

I think it's the broke factor for Mayweather. Fighting cause you owe millions, but flossing cash...no one cares....

Trump 'round here throwing rocks, talking us into a war he nor his family will actually fight and mucking up our finances. Ain't nobody got thousands to spend on an illiterate buffoon and a Klan-nazi. We'll pass.
