Some of you will recall our post last week about soaring ticket prices from resale outlets, so expect some incredibly outrageous price gouging to go down once the ticket sale goes live. If we look back on the most successful pay-per-view of all time, Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao, ticket pricing went north of $350K/each a full week out from the fight. It’s not a stretch to envision resale outlets marking their tickets up even higher for a bout that will almost surely break the PPV record.
