Pacquiao-Bradley Does Good Business, But Numbers Drop

by Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has obtained the numbers for last Saturday's welterweight bout between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, which took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The controversial fight generated a live gate of $8,963,180, with 13,229 tickets sold. There were 2,070 unsold tickets and 925 comps given out.

There was also an additional gate of $249,000 via closed circuit from 4,980 tickets sold.

This was Pacquiao's third consecutive appearance at the MGM Grand.  

The numbers dipped from Pacquiao's November trilogy bout with Juan Manuel Marquez. The Marquez trilogy sold 15,498 tickets and generated a gate of $11,648,300.

However, the overall figures for Pacquiao-Bradley were not far off from the numbers related to Pacquiao's May 2011 pay-per-view with Shane Mosley. Pacquiao-Mosley sold more tickets, with 15,422, but the event had a slightly lower live gate of $8,882,600.

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER;12243025]It's not Floyd's fault that arum had a less attractive PPV line up then he did. Floyd is clearly doing more numbers than Pacquiao. At first I was like make it 50/50 but now knowing the fact that Arum gave…

Not a terrible gate, still a little less revenue than May-Ortiz on the gate. The PPV numbers will be nowhere near 1.25M like May-Ortiz though, and won't come close to 78M in PPV revenue.
