Tickets to the May 4 Floyd Mayweather-Robert Guerrero headlined show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas are almost gone. Within 12 hours of going on sale, less than 1,500 seats remain for the Cinco de Mayo weekend event, according to a press release from Golden Boy Promotions, which is co-promoting the card with Mayweather Promotions.
The Showtime Pay Per View-televised event will also include a featherweight showdown between WBC beltholder Daniel Ponce de Leon and unbeaten two-division titleholder Abner Mares.
“Boxing fans know what they get when they purchase a ticket to a Floyd Mayweather fight,” Leonard Ellerbe, CEO Mayweather Promotions, was quoted in the Thursday press release. “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.”
Richard Schaefer, CEO Golden Boy Promotions, had this to say:
“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.
“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.”
