LOS ANGELES - As soon as the September 14 showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez was announced, it became the biggest fight of 2013 and the hottest ticket in town. How hot? Less than 24 hours after going on sale on Tuesday, every ticket to the highly anticipated fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena was sold, confirming that when it comes to "THE ONE," which will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV, the entire world will be watching.

In response to the rapid live gate sellout, Mayweather Promotions, Golden Boy Promotions, Canelo Promotions and MGM Resorts International are pleased to announce that six MGM Resorts properties will host live closed circuit telecasts of "THE ONE." Properties showcasing the event include ARIA, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Monte Carlo and New York-New York.

General admission tickets for the closed circuit telecasts are priced at $100, not including handling fees, and will be available for purchase at each individual property's box office outlets and also will be available for purchase by phone with a major credit card at 866-799-7711.  Closed circuit ticket sales are limited to eight (8) per person.  Tickets also will be available through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com .  Tickets for closed circuit viewing at MGM Grand go on sale Friday, June 28 at 3:00 p.m. ET/Noon PT. Information regarding availability of closed circuit tickets at the five other properties will be announced in the near future.

"This sell out doesn't surprise me because this is what happens when the best fights the best," said Mayweather. "I want to thank all the fans for their support. They're going to see a hell of a show on September 14, whether it's at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, on closed circuit in Las Vegas or on SHOWTIME Pay-Per-View."

"Thank you to everyone who bought tickets to this event," said Alvarez. "I know I will have plenty of support in the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 14. This is the biggest night of my career, I will be at my best for it and I will win."

 "We're truly excited that the fans have spoken," said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. "This is a tremendous fight and the quick sellout is another indication that this is the fight fans want to see. Both fighters thank the fans for their tremendous support."

"The demand for tickets, even before they went on sale, was unprecedented," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "This is the fight the world wanted, we gave it to the fans, and they responded. September 14 will be the biggest night boxing has seen in years. We urge fans to get their closed circuit tickets before they sell out as well!"

"THE ONE: MAYWEATHER VS. CANELO," a 12-round fight for Canelo's WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine Super Welterweight World Championships and Mayweather's WBA Super Welterweight Super World Championship taking place Saturday, Sept. 14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, is promoted by Mayweather Promotions, Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and sponsored by Corona, O'Reilly Auto Parts and Valvoline. The mega-event will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. The event can be heard in Spanish using secondary audio programming (SAP).

No surprise. This is a big fight. The only fight I think would have been bigger, was of course the elusive May/Pac superfight. I'm sure it would have sold out in 24 minutes. Great news though. Long live the sweet science! :boxing:
