Mayweather vs Pacquiao weigh-in tickets will cost $10
In an unprecedented move, promoters will charge fans $10 to view the Mayweather vs Pacquiao weigh-in on the fight's eve

MANILA, Philippines – Planning to watch Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr step on the scale in Las Vegas? Bring your wallet.

Entrance to the mega-fight’s weigh-in, which will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday afternoon, will come at a cost of $10, ESPN reports. The unprecedented move will be to curb the swelling crowds expected on fight week, with all portions going to charity.

“What we wanted to do was avoid the craziness you’ve seen at the Mayweather and Pacquiao weigh-ins where you have people sleeping out in front of the arena the night before and basically camping out,” Brad Jacobs, executive event producer for Top Rank, which promotes Pacquiao tells ESPN.

Top Rank’s portion of proceeds will reportedly be donated to the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, which has a Las Vegas branch dedicated to studying brain health in boxers. Mayweather’s portion will go to the breast cancer charity he has supported for years, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.

Tickets for the weigh-in will be sold through MGM ticket outlets. Meanwhile, tickets to the fight itself have yet to go on sale with little over two weeks to go before fight night. –
