Tickets were sold out within a minute of going on public sale, with some companies then offering tickets for as much as £94,000 just moments after they had all been released.

The main event, Mayweather vs Pacquiao, is currently listed for an 8pm local time start, but as always with these events, it could indeed be pushed later if the majority of fights on the undercard go the distance.

With regards to British time, the main event is set for a 4am start. Plenty of coffee and energy drinks at the ready if you are staying right through!
