 YEHEY!Finance | Boxing - When money matters
The Araneta Coliseum management will not allow general admission tickets for the Manny Pacquiao-Oscar Larios World Boxing Council International super featherweight title fight on July 2 to be sold at P1,000 each.
However, an Araneta Coliseum official said they would “never allow that, since it goes against the original purpose for which the coliseum was built” by respected businessman-sportsman J. Amado Araneta, who wanted a venue, where world-class entertainment could be enjoyed by Filipinos at affordable prices.
Some fans assailed the giant TV network ABS-CBN, which is reportedly underwriting the costs under the Manny Pacquiao Promotions outfit, claiming it was the network’s greed that prompted the exorbitant ticket prices for general admission.
