12K tickets sold for Canelo vs. Trout on 1st day

I’m an idiot and what?

First off the sold 12,000 the first day and in 3 days 15,000 tickets have been sold. That is half the tickets already with more than a month left to sell the rest of the tickets. 2nd thing is that only 10,000 tickets are being sold for $10 dollars which makes sense with such a big stadium.

The MGM only packs about 14,000 people so this fight is already a sell out because 15,000 tickets have already been sold. Usually the day of the fight you usually have a big walk up audience who wants to buy tickets but I doubt there will be tickets left unless they decided to allow 40,000 people enter.

To say Canelo is not popular is stupid considering most boxers don’t sell 12,000 tickets in one day. Even a crowd of 20,000 for such a young fighter is highly impressive but I bet the fights does sell out and they reach 30,000 people & some NFL football teams don’t even reach that big of a crowd. You can hate on Canelo all you want but he does have a fan base.

DAN AMBROSE clearly has a problem with canelo, always writing negative stuff about him. Stop hating on him and give the kid some props he’s got a big fan base for a 22 year old that is just getting his legacy started. It will be hilarious to see what you write about canelo after he gets done with trout and makes easy work of him.

Also reports say they have an 800k gate already. That is great for a fight thats tickets have been on sale 24 hours.

Brando there are currently 12k tickets sold and 11k 10 dollar tickets being offered. Many of the tickets sold are not 10 dollar tickets.

There are more Mexican national boxing fans than any other country. Canelo is very popular. And just under Pac and may..get it right Ambrose.

Canelo is the top seller in boxing, just ahead of Chavez jr, Pacman and Mayweather

I would rather pay to see canelo fight than to pay for floyd,canelo has.a fan friendly style plus I believe he has talent.

Tex

Those were the $10.00 dollar tickets,lol

john

the fact is a lot of tickets still are NOT 10 dollars,which means a lot of people are paying the regular price,,,,this makes me laugh that the haters are looking for excuses to discredit canelo’s popularity,the kid has fans,face it haters,he has fans and will keep on having more fans if he keeps winning,he has already proven he can bring people in to the arenas,whats wrong with that? why do people hate that? a fighter is popular and has fans and people hate that? man something must be wrong in your life,,lol

Supply and demand economics dictate the cost of the tickets. Imagine The Chosen One leaving Vegas to sell 30,000 seats at $200.00 to fight Gurerro. Stupid is as Stupid Dan does.

john

he isn’t popular enough? the kid had fans at his last fight,remember the one where one of the biggest fights of the year was taking place that same night? canelo would still bring people in even with just “regular price” tickets,he already did last sept and don’t forget,not all tickets are priced at 10 dollars,what about the other thousands of fans that will show up?

dice

this show’s what the kid is worth nothing if your worth a 100 dollar’s 2012 and in 2013 your worth 10 dollar’s something is wrong tis is the blooper of the year

Dan Ambrose

The self proclaimed greatest fighter is a cherry picker and boring to watch. simply mad that at 22 Canelo has a bigger following than mayweather did at the age of 2

GBP can sell tickets at whatever price they want, more fighters should do that to get more of the casual boxing fans to attend a live fight. Pacquiao gave away about 1 million dollars worth of tickets his last fight unlike greedy phuc mayweather.

i cant believe that all fans are giving credit to trout for that horrible fight against cotto, for me was a very very close fight, actually the first 5 rounds were for cotto, nobody would say a word to complain if cotto wins that fight, trout couldnt believe that he won. so what else? trout vs delvin rodriguez? see that fight and the odds should be 7-1.. not 3-1 canelo favorite

Truefan

After Trout exposes the kid maybe he could fight for free on ESPN. “Co-Co main event for Berto…..lol

Truefan

Good thing he decided not to fight on Mayweathers undercard, Money may would have lost money…….lmao. Ginger & GBP are way too smart for the rest of us

Adrien

Both fighters have a lot to lose here and I give them both a lot of credit for making the fight happen. The author should cut them slack.

Im glad Canelo is looking out for fans and there families who other wise wouldnt be able to see a big boxing match. More boxers should do this for there fans. Canelo is still young win or lose he has a bright future in boxing.

A lot of top boxers can’t give 12,000 tickets so even if jes selling tix at 10$ that’s great. Future is looking great for Canelo..22yrs old…not bad

damn, c´mon Dan that´s PROMOTION for a fighter….

The reason Golden boy is doing it in texas and not mexico city is for investment purposes. Of course canelo isnt that popular yet. But he has the potential. So they decided to set the fight in the US to build US fans. We all know you have to make it here in the US to ever hope to be a Top Teir fighter (money wise anyway). So Golden boy is taken a hit now in the hopes of huge paydays down the road. A wise decision. However, Canelo needs a lot of work. I think Trout is going to show Canelos talent level. I dont think its high right now. De La Hoya knows it and that why he gonna spar with him. Well see if Canelo can rise to the occasion. I for one will be watching.
