If you’re already in possession of some highly-coveted Pacquiao vs. Mayweather tickets, then Top Rank Boxing CEO Bob Arum has a stern warning for you, because the tickets have yet to be released to the public.

In an interview with the ABS-CBN North America Bureau, Arum said to be careful with unofficial vendors because tickets to the May 2 megabout are only set to be released to the public this coming Friday, April 10th (April 11, Manila time). In fact, Arum said that no tickets have been printed out just yet and “not one ticket has been issued.”

Arum also added that because of the high price of the tickets, there will only be a limited number of tickets allotted to Pacquiao’s entourage.

As for those who can’t see the fight in person, Arum said only MGM hotels have the privilege of Closed Circuit Viewing, while everyone else can avail of the Pay-Per-View.

As for the ticket prices, the cheapest ones cost $1,500 or around P67,000 and the most expensive ones will cost you a staggering $10,000 or around half a million pesos.

The number of tickets per price is as follows, with the $10,000 tickets not available for public sale:
