The Axiata Arena ticketing office has been receiving a lot of inquiries regarding ticket sales since April when Pacquiao and Matthysse announced their fight in press conferences in Manila and Kuala Lumpur. As of press time yesterday, a large number of tickets have already been sold.

Ticket prices are pegged at $5,000, $2,000, $1,000, $500, $350, $250 and $125. Corporate box rooms are also available. Major credit cards are accepted.

The most exciting boxing event in the last four decades unfolds in Malaysia featuring four world championships, including Pacquiao's bid to win the World Boxing Association's welterweight crown against Matthysse, the dangerous Argentine champion.

The 16,000-seat venue is expected to be sold out as MP Promotions Kuala Lumpur (MPKL) has assembled an all-star cast of fighters from all over the world, from China to India, to South Africa, Mexico among others.

The long wait for the ticket release was timed well in order for the fans to avail of huge discounts. The new Malaysian government of Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, the recently-elected Prime Minister, eliminated the old GST or the goods and service tax. The six percent (6%) GST was previously implemented on goods and services.

Pacquiao, the only eight-division and 10-time world boxing champion, is also the promoter of this fight with his MPKL company trying to equal, if not surpass the greatest boxing event in this country since Muhammad Ali and Joe Bugner fought in 1975.

"This is what we have been waiting for. Let's get on with the fights," said Pacquiao, who has already logged in more than 20 rounds of sparring even as Matthysse has been training as hard in California.

Aside from the Pacquiao Vs Matthysse championship, three other title fights will heat up the event. Edivaldo "Indio" Ortega of Mexico, 26-1-1 (12 KOs) locks horns with unbeaten Cebu City pride and Filipino Jhack Tepora,21-0, (16 KOs)in a world featherweight championship.

Carlos Canizales of Venezuela, the unbeaten light flyweight champion with a 20-0-1 (16 KOs) record will stake his crown against Chinese sensation Lu Bin, an amateur standout with a sterling amateur career.

Veteran Moruti Mthalane of South Africa, 35-2 (24 KOs) will battle it out with Muhammad Waseem of Pakistan, 8-0 (6 KOs) for the IBF
flyweight crown.

[QUOTE=gritsteel;18918811]The most expensive tickets, VIP and VVIP are sold out. If the cheaper tickets don't get sold out, it's because Malaysians are not boxing-crazy, not because they can't afford it. They are soccer-crazy, and it's the World Cup series ongoing,…
