A pair of boxing cards promoted by Top Rank in Las Vegas earlier this month sold a combined 1,232 tickets for a combined gate of $45,115, according to figures provided by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The Aug. 3 card at the Texas Station casino — which aired on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights” and featured Mercito Gesta vs. Ty Barnett in the main event — sold 579 tickets for a gate of $20,920, for an average of $36.13 per ticket sold.

Another 408 tickets were given away for free, while 152 tickets went unsold.

The fighters on the Aug. 3 card had a combined $64,500 in purses reported to the state athletic commission.

The Aug. 4 card, also at Texas Station — which aired on Telefutura and featured Diego Magdaleno vs. Antonio Davis in the main event, plus Mike Lee and Jose Benavidez in separate bouts on the undercard — sold 653 tickets for a gate of $24,195, for an average of $37.05 per ticket sold.

Another 517 tickets were given away for free — bringing the total for free tickets given away for the two cards to 925 — while 54 tickets for the Saturday card went unsold.

The fighters on the Aug. 4 card had a combined $71,200 in purses reported to the state athletic commission.

Pretty good considering they were offering both shows for 35 bucks.

Most of everyone talkin trash have obviously not been in Vegas. There is more of a city than just the strip. This was local cards held inside the city not on the strip, so It did pretty well for what it was. The magdaleno brothers fight here all the time and are quite popular.

Fairly standard gate for local club shows. Most boxing fans don't know anything regarding the local show economics. TV covers the majority and the gate is just extra. When you come to think of it, it's the same even for the HBO/Showtime shows. Hahaha!
