Default The Great Mystery – How Many People Bought Mayweather-Ortiz?

The MGM Grand was not sold out for the fight. There were about 9000 seats that were reported as “paid,” although many of those are comps given to casino players that were taxed by the Nevada commission. That is a disappointing turnout for someone who is supposed to be a “game-changer” when it comes to the business of boxing

If they are truly very disappointing, that weakens Mayweather’s position in relation to any fight or in the future, with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

Could it be that the numbers are so bad that they can’t even “spin” it?

I hope it's major failure. If he continues to delay the Pac fight and pounce on easy paydays, then I hope he gets little for them.
