#Get your Pacquiao vs Matthysse “Fight of Champions” tickets now!

#Tickets go on sale online beginning 7 June 2018

KUALA LUMPUR, 7 June 2018 – Good news for boxing fans who have eagerly awaited the opening of ticket sales for the historic WBA Welterweight Championship fight between Manny Pacquiao and Lucas Matthysse. Public tickets for the fight at the Axiata Arena on 15 July 2018 are available online starting 7 June at MyTicket.Asia, with prices ranging from RM488 to RM19,888 in 7 categories – Bronze to VVIP.

There will be 13,847 available seats for boxing fans from across the region to witness live the showdown between two of the biggest names in boxing history, battling each other for the WBA Welterweight Championship on Malaysian soil.

Online ticketing goes live at 4.00PM on 7 June at www.myticket.asia/. There will be a RM5 ticketing fee for all tickets sold. The MyTicket.Asia site accepts worldwide payments via credit and debit cards from MasterCard and Visa only.

For fans who prefer to buy tickets at the arena, ticket sales at the counter will be announced at a later date. With the implementation of zero-rated GST beginning 1 June, the tickets will not be subjected to GST.

Pacquiao, the only eight-division and 10-time world boxing champion, who is also the promoter of this fight with his MPKL company, is confident that the tickets will be sold out based on the overwhelming inquiries since April as well as the successful press conferences held in Manila and Kuala Lumpur.

“I am excited. The fans are excited. Malaysia is ready. Let’s get on with this fight,” said Pacquiao, who has already logged in more than a dozen rounds of sparring.

The highly anticipated blockbuster world title bout takes place at 10am on 15 July 2018 (Malaysian time) equivalent to 7pm on 14 July 2018 (Pacific Daylight Time). The event once again focuses the eyes of the world on Kuala Lumpur, 43 years after another historic fight in Malaysia’s capital – Ali vs Bugner in July 1975.

Apart from the big showdown, there are three title fights and other undercard fights including our very own Johor-born professional boxer Muhammad Farkhan Mohd Haron in a Light Heavyweight fight, Kajang-born boxer Theena Thayalan in a Welterweight fight and Kuala Lumpur-born Alman Abu Baker in a Featherweight fight.

This is the best opportunity for Malaysians to come together to support our homegrown fighters, who will be listed on the same fight card as the legendary Manny Pacquiao.
