Default can someone explain madison sqaure garden to me?

how come in some fights it looks like the ceiling is extremely low, but in others it looks like a massive arena?

during the khan/malignaggi fight and lopez/mtagwa fight, you could see the ceiling and those criss-crossing LED lights that are on it... but in the cotto-judah fight it looked like it was the MGM grand...

can someone explain?

Because, the massive arena is the arena.

Today's Madison Square Garden is more than just the arena. Other venues at the Garden include:

The WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden, which seats between 2,000 and 5,600 for concerts and can also be used for meetings, stage shows, and graduation ceremonies, and was also the traditional home of the NFL Draft until 2005, when it moved to the Jacob Javits Convention Center after MSG management opposed a new stadium for the New York Jets. It also occasionally hosts major boxing matches on nights when the main arena is unavailable. No seat is more than 177 feet (54 m) from the 30' 64' stage. The theatre has a relatively low 20-foot (6.1 m) ceiling at stage level[7] and all of its seating except for boxes on the two side walls is on one level slanted back from the stage. There is an 8,000-square-foot (740 m2) lobby at the theater. When the current Garden opened in 1968, the Theater was known as the Felt Forum, in honor of then president Irving Felt. In the early 1990s, at the bequest of Garden owner Paramount Communications, the theater was renamed the Paramount after the Paramount Theatre in Times Square had been converted to an office tower. The theater received its next name of The Theater at Madison Square Garden in the mid-90s, after Viacom bought Paramount, and sold the MSG properties to a group consisting of ITT and Cablevision, which each owned 50% of the Garden. In 1997, ITT sold their share to Cablevision, giving the cable company full control of the venue. The fall 1999 Jeopardy! Teen Tournament as well as a Celebrity Jeopardy! competition were held at the theater. In 2004, it was the venue of the Survivor: All Stars finale. On May 17, 2007, the theater received its current name due to a naming rights deal with Washington Mutual. Since Washington Mutual is no longer a bank after being seized by the Office of Thrift Supervision and FDIC and sold to JP Morgan Chase, the fate of the name is currently unknown.[8] Since 2001, the WaMu Theatre has been the site of the NBA Draft.

The 36,000-square-foot (3,300 m2) Expo Center (formerly known as "The Rotunda") is used for trade shows, cat shows, stamp shows, often in combination with the arena, banquets, and receptions.

Not many fights are anymore. I think Cotto and Vladamir are the only ones to have fights there lately. Wlads was awhile back.

Promoters want the Media but they don't want to pay the taxes here. Plus, how many guys can really sell here anymore? I think Kahn might be big here if they keep bringing him back.

Foreman and Korobov could have a future here. I don't really see a whole lot of other guys being big sellers here right now or the near future.
