Faster than the speed of light or sound or whatever your favorite physics-related energy or vibration or wavelength is…well, that’s how quickly the tickets to attend the Fight of the Century between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao sold out during the April 23rd public release. They were gone in less than two minutes.

Comments

I’m a Las Vegas native. By profession, I write at Vegas.com. Mostly about the city’s hotels, but on other topics – gaming and transportation – too. I really love staying at hotels. And the ones here are among the biggest and best in the world. Some key things I’ve learned: Resort fees are inescapable (frustrating but true), a friendly attitude at the front desk may score you a great view and over-the-top room amenities – bath butlers, Japanese tea service, menus with “intimate” items – do exist. What else should you know about me? Well, I’m comfortable at a blackjack table. And I like eating late-night pancakes in hotel coffee shops. A lot. Follow Renee on Google+.
