Vegas closed-circuit telecasts sold out for Mayweather-Pacquiao fight

Less than a day after some 500 tickets made available to the public for the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight sold out in mere minutes, the 10 closed-circuit venues in Las Vegas also have no seats remaining.

A Ticketmaster representative confirmed Friday morning that all the venues -- all owned by MGM -- have sold all of their tickets. Each ticket cost $150 and there was a limit of eight per household.

MGM spokesperson Scott Ghertner told ESPN.com early Friday morning that some tickets may still be available because hotels often add their guests.

Some who scored tickets to the closed circuit viewing took to the resale market, marking them up at three to six times the original cost.

As the host of the fight, MGM Resorts properties are the only hotel and casino venues in the county that are allowed to show the fight. That means MGM Resorts can block the pay-per-view option in the hotel rooms of competitors. Individual standalone bars are an exception.

Through 10 p.m. ET Thursday, 151 tickets to the fight had been resold on StubHub, with an average of $6,136 paid per ticket. A source told ESPN.com that a person closely associated with one of the fighters was looking for $350,000 per ticket for an up-front ringside seat.
