Fan excitement drives ticket sales for Pacquiao vs Matthysse ‘Fight of Champions’

PETALING JAYA: Fan excitement is driving sales of public tickets to the highly anticipated title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Lucas Matthysse for the World Boxing Association welterweight title, to be held at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur on 15 July 2018.

Sales have been particularly brisk in the Bronze and Silver ticket categories since the tickets went on sale on June 7, spurred by interest from local and regional fans.

Fans havee been urged to act fast to ensure they get hold of a ticket in the Bronze and Silver categories, priced at RM488 and RM988 respectively, to avoid disappointment as a significant portion of the tickets have already been sold.

"The initial sales are encouraging and we are thrilled by the strong response and support from boxing fans across the region especially the international fans who purchased the tickets in bulk.

"We are expecting the excitement to further build over the weekend as fans spread the word to other fans who may not have read the news on the ticket sales.

"As the Bronze and Silver category tickets are going fast, we encourage fans not to delay their ticket purchase, to ensure they can secure a seat in their preferred area," said Mohd Fairuz Ibrahim, Operations Director of MPKL Events.

There are seven categories of public tickets – RM488 for Bronze, RM988 for Silver, RM1,388 for Gold, RM1,988 for Platinum, RM3,988 for Diamond, RM7,988 for VIP and RM19,888 for the VVIP ticket. There will be an RM5 ticketing fee applied to all tickets sold.

Tickets are available online via the MyTicket.Asia site.

Purchases can be made using credit and debit cards from MasterCard and Visa only. For fans who prefer to buy tickets at the arena, ticket sales at the counter will be announced at a later date.
