Huge interest in Pacquiao v Cotto

Less than 1,000 tickets remain for the highly anticipated bout between Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto at the 16,200-seat MGM Grand Garden Arena on November 14.

Top Rank’s Fire Power will be Pacquiao’s first outing since his devastating knockout of Ricky Hatton in May, while Cotto will be looking to upset the odds against the pound-for-pound champion.

All of the low price bracket seats have sold-out with only the higher priced seats remaining.

Bob Arum, CEO of Top Rank was excited by the huge response.

"We are looking forward to making Pacquiao vs Cotto as one of the greatest box office and Pay Per View successes of all-time," said Arum who promotes both fighters.

Many commentators and bookies have written off Cotto’s chances of beating Pacquiao, who is fast becoming a living legend, but the Puerto Rican’s strength, sturdy chin and efficiency with heavy body shots may prove a problem for the Filipino.

Boxing fans the world over will be hoping a deal will be made between the winner of Pacquiao v Cotto and Mayweather v Marquez, scheduled September 19, in what would be a fight for the pound-for-pound title.
