Looks like GBP really did have a sellout

Can anyone verify if the GBP card was a sellout? It appeared to be from what I saw.

no sellout.far from it.there were thousands of comps given away in the past 2 weeks according to reports.after golden boy claimed a sellout reporters asked realy then how come tickets are avalible to buy at ticketmaster.gb tried to save face but the fight didnt come close to selling legit wise all the tickets..maybe 40 -50 percent at best .thats a maybe.

there was several boxing writers saying there was thousands of comps.

this reminds me of when they had one of the fight cards in california recently where there was 5-6000 people there and something like 3500 was comps

when the numbers get released, dan rafael or steve kim will definitely tweet about whether gb did in fact have a sellout or a decent amount of comps. The big problem that Golden Boy has is they like to say things that aren't really true. De La Hoya is as dishonest as Bob (Today I'm telling the truth yesterday i was lying) Arum.

well according to the nevada commision the alvarez fight did well.about 1680 or so comps and over 12000 tickets sold with a gate over a million plus and zero tickets left..the chavez fight alo sold out with a gate of 3 million plus and about 780 comps.
the alvarez fight reports gave us a incorrect picture on ticket sales.2 legit sell outs .a great night for vegas and boxing.
im glad both did well.both mexicans proved they are legit stars..

The easiest way to do it in Vegas is to go to the various casinos, play with a gaming card, and enter your name into various drawings. They give those tickets away like Halloween candy in the days leading up to a fight...

if we had cards like those fights all of the time then we would get more sell outs. and just think, those cards werent even great, they were just good.
