Bradley-Marquez Sold 10.6K Tickets, Had $3M Gate

by David P. Greisman

The Oct. 12 fight between Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez sold 10,683 tickets and did a gate of $2,998,950, according to figures provided by Keith Kizer of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

That’s an average of $280.72 per ticket sold.

The card, held at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, also had 1,370 tickets given away for free.

Another 5,649 tickets went unsold.

The eight-fight show was headlined by Bradley’s split decision win over Marquez, which was the main event of an HBO pay-per-view.  The undercard bouts included Orlando Salido knocking out Orlando Cruz, Vasyl Lomachenko knocking out Jose Ramirez, and Seanie Monaghan stopping Anthony Smith.

TR messed up promoting this fight, 5k unsold seat?! that's a lost revenue of 1.4M, min. Figures are not that bad but Juan can forget Part II unless he agrees to a 30/70 deal in case part II happens. That…

So, if the non-ringside ticketprices were a little lower it would have sold out right?
