Fewer Than 300 Tickets Were Bought For Mundine-McKart

by David P. Greisman

A total of 286 tickets were sold for this past Saturday’s middleweight bout between Anthony Mundine and Bronco McKart, according to figures provided by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Another 992 tickets were given out for free, and 672 went unsold.

The eight-fight card, held at the Pearl Theater at the Palms Hotel Casino Resort in Las Vegas, brought in a total gate of $15,235.50.

Mundine-McKart was held on the same day as another card in Las Vegas — the junior welterweight unification bout between Danny Garcia and Amir Khan. Garcia-Khan was aired on HBO, while Mundine-McKart was broadcast via a WealthTV pay-per-view.

Mundine defeated McKart via seventh-round technical knockout, bringing his record to 44-4 with 26 knockouts. McKart fell to 54-10-1 with 32 knockouts.
