Brandon Rios-Mike Alvarado Rematch: 1,500 Tickets Left
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Top Rank's CEO BOB ARUM:   Tickets are selling extremely well and we are very pleased with that.  There are only approximately 1,500 tickets left.  We are selling 60 or 70 a day so I am pretty sure we will have a sellout by fight time.  There is one bit of advice I want to give both fighters – nobody smoke a joint – wait till after the fight is over.

Brandon Rios-Mike Alvarado II, a rematch of their 2012 Fight of the Year-nominated fight and one of the greatest fights of the 21st Century, will take place, Saturday, March 30, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nev.  The 12-round World Boxing Organization (WBO) interim junior welterweight championship rumble will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark®, beginning at 10:15 p.m. ET/PT.

In their first fight, last October 13, a battle of undefeated gladiators, Rios and Alvarado fought toe-to-toe and non-stop for seven thrilling rounds that saw dramatic momentum shifts throughout the action-packed bout.  Two of the judges had the fight scored even before referee Pat Russell stopped the fight at 1:57 of the seventh round, awarding the TKO victory to Rios.   Media and fans alike compared Rios-Alvarado to the great matches of the past 50 years, including Ali-Frazier III, Corrales -Castillo I and Hagler-Hearns, based on action and entertainment value.

Promoted by Top Rank®, in association with Tecate, remaining tickets to Rios-Alvarado II are priced at $250, $150, $100 and $50, not including applicable service charges. Tickets are limited to eight (8) per person and are available for purchase at all Ticketmaster locations (select Smith’s Food and Drug Centers and Ritmo Latino). To charge by phone with a major credit card, call Mandalay Bay at (877) 632-7400 or Ticketmaster (800) 745-3000. Tickets are also available for purchase at www.MandalayBay.com or www.Ticketmaster.com .

Fans who are interested in not only purchasing tickets to the fight but also booking a room at Mandalay Bay can earn a special offer, which includes a discounted room rate along with a $25 resort credit.  This sweet room deal can be accessed by visiting https://resweb.passkey.com/go/erank13b .

1,500 tickets left, says the headline. They never indicate the total number. 1,500 tickets out of how many?
