Default Why has the MGM grand not been sold out yet??? For Mayweather vs Guerrero??

It's 5 days to the fight and there is still plenty of tickest left???

Why???

CBS documentary!!! Showtime Promotion and all and **** dude can't sell out the arena.

Mayweather has lived off his opponents fans.

Plain simple truth. What were Mayweathers numbers before he fought de la hoya??? LOLLOLLOL!!!

I think we might see a dip in PPV numbers as Floyd and Manny cant use each other to piggyback themselves anymore

since Manny lost two in a row and the fight looks totally unlikely with the HBO/SHO split the 2 fighters cant sell their fights on superfight hype anymore

Pac vs Clottey and Floyd vs Ortiz wouldnt have been big selling fights without the idea that a fight between the 2 was next

the public doesnt care about either fighter enough to buy the fights unless the other big name is in the headlines

i bet Floyd and Manny continue to do worse PPVs until they fight each other (which they may not, unless Floyd loses anytime soon)

I think they both relied on each other for their PPV sales

Promotion has been lacking, plain and simple. All Access has had very low views. I've seen plenty of posters around NYC but that's not enough. There's no sense of drama.

I disagree, if manny fights Marquez the number will be there. If manny fights bradley and k.os him his numbers will be up there still. Mayweather was the one piggy banking off everybody else, but fighting guys he knows he can beat has finally caught up to him because fans and seeing his **** for what it is!!!

canelo was on that card!!!
And let me just clarify this to you. Some guys that i watched the fight with (mexicans from mexico) though canelo was fighting Miguel cotto!!! They saw the last name and assumed it was Miguel hence alot of them bought it for that reason, and were surprised that it was his brother.

Stupid huh!!

I don't think the people that buy fights watch CBS. But they do watch HBO.
