Thousands of tickets still available on the primary
The boxer astounded many with an Instagram post Thursday instructing fans to buy tickets for his upcoming fight with Connor McGregor from scalper Ken Solky, especially as thousands of tickets still sit on the Ticketmaster page for the Aug. 26 bout.
“I know everyone’s excited to see my biggest fight ever… but blowing up my phone isn’t going to get you anywhere,” Mayweather wrote. “I don’t have the tickets, but I have the talent! If you plan on coming to watch my fight and you need tickets then call Kenny.” He went on to list Solky’s phone number and website.

“It is what is,” one broker told Amplify.
