Maybe all it took was some complaining from Bob Arum.
The fight contract for the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao May 2nd mega bout was finally signed Wednesday night, according to ESPN, after Top Rank's Arum publicly complained about the terms not being what he originally agreed to.
The two camps jumped on a Wednesday morning conference call to iron out their discrepancies and the contract was signed by the evening.
"Then they finally sent over a draft reflecting the deal we had agreed to, and it was absolutely 100 percent what we had agreed to," Arum told ESPN. "But it didn't come over until 6 p.m. [PT], and by 7 p.m. we had reviewed everything and signed."
Now, that that's finally taken care of, the tickets will officially go on sale Thursday.
Of course, it will cost some major bucks to watch the fight live in person at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
ESPN reports that tickets will be priced at anywhere from $1,500 to $7,500 with the sale going live at 3p.m. Thursday via Ticketmaster. There's a limit of four per household. There are also $10,000 tickets, but those are not available to the public.
