The One Canelo Mayweather

I am here in Vegas and I can confirm this report from Bad Left Hook.

When I was at the Mayweather vs. Guerrero fight in May, you could get tickets day of the fight for $300, but I can assure you that won’t be the case for Mayweather vs. Canelo.

Here are the details from Seatgeek

  • The average ticket price on the secondary market for the Mayweather-Alvarez fight — an astounding $2,028 per ticket — makes it more than twice as expensive as any other fight we’ve ever tracked. The most in-demand bout we’d previously seen was Pacquiao-Marquez last December, with an average ticket price of $920.
  • In fact, this is the highest average ticket price for any event we’ve ever tracked outside of the last three Super Bowls (XLV, XLVI and XLVII had average resale prices of $3,561, $2,991 and $2,479, respectively). Those four events are the only four we have ever seen with an average ticket price of at least $2,000.
  • It will cost on average exactly twice as much to be there for this fight as it cost to attend Game 7 of the NBA Finals in Miami earlier this year ($1,014).
  • Floor seats for this fight are selling for an average of $10,629 on the secondary market, while seats in the lower sections are going for $3,338 per ticket. If you just want to get in, you’ll still have to pay an average of $1,365 per ticket for upper level seats.
  • We’ve seen a recent spike in demand on the secondary market as excitement builds in the lead up to the fight. The average price of tickets sold in the past week is $2,492, an increase of more than 40 percent from where that average was two weeks ago ($1,772).
  • The least expensive ticket available on SeatGeek right now is a $1,888 seat in Section 220, but we’ve seen buyers pay as much as $23,554 for floor level tickets. All the latest information on ticket prices and availability can be found on SeatGeek’s event page for the fight.
