The biggest fight in a very long time is coming up this Saturday night when Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao get together in the squared circle. Tickets for the event in Las Vegas have been hard to come by and very, very expensive. It was reported earlier this week that somebody on StubHub paid $40,955 for a ticket to the fight.

The people who were able to get actual tickets for the fight have been trying to make a huge profit off the tickets. As of Wednesday morning, there were some tickets that were priced over $300,000 on the website. That is definitely a bundle of money that would go down the drain if the fight were to last only a round or less.
It is probably more about the experience for some people anyway and spending that much money is worth it just to say that there were in the building when the Fight of the Century went on. Hopefully for those who pay six figures for their tickets, Mayweather and Pacquiao put on a 12-round battle that comes down to a decision so they get their money’s worth.
