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.
