A batch of between 500-1,000 tickets were made available for the fight at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand on May 2 following weeks of negotiations and accusations between Mayweather Promotions and Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum.
Fans were able to buy tickets from both Ticketmaster and the MGM Grand site, but prices were set at a minimum of $1,500 (£1,000) and reaching all the way up to $7,500 (£5,000) for a set.
Ringside seats at the 16,800 capacity arena also went for a cool $10,000 (£6,600), but tickets on the black market are set to reach $200,000.
