Promoter claims Manny Pacquiao vs Errol Spence fight to sellout in a jiffy
One of the lead promoters for the Manny Pacquiao vs Errol Spence bout is confident that the fight will make a massive amount of money considering the kind of global attention it has received.
In a recent interview, TGB Promotions head Tom Brown explained: “The question isn’t, will Pacquiao-Spence sell out but how quickly will Pacquiao-Spence sell out.” I’m getting calls from the biggest names in entertainment, sports, and business for tickets.”
The TGB Promotions are organizing the super fight with MP Promotions and Premier Boxing Champions (PBC). The Pac Man will take on his 11-year-old younger opponent on August 21 in Las Vegas.
The fight was confirmed by both boxers to fight in mid-May, something that was a bit of a shock to the boxing fans who were expecting a different opponent for Pacquiao as he was heavily linked to Ryan Garcia, Keith Thurman and even former UFC double champ Conor McGregor.
The Pac Man is boxing’s only eight-division world champion, but he will enter the ring as an underdog against the IBF and WBC welterweight champion, primarily because of his age.
The 42-year-old boxing veteran fought and defeated Thurman in the 2020 fight. The Coronavirus situation then halted sporting events and inactivity forced Pacquiao to be stripped of the title. As for Spence, he is coming off a stunning win over Shawn Porter in a fight that is regarded as one of the best fights of 2019.
