VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - August 17, 2009) - TicketLiquidator, the leading provider of the world's most extensive ticket inventory for hard-to-find, low-priced tickets, announced today that tickets for the Pacquiao vs. Cotto welterweight boxing match are available for purchase at affordable prices on TicketLiquidator.com.
On Saturday, November 14, 2009 Manny Pacquiao, boxing's top pound-for-pound fighter, will battle for the fourth division world title against WBO welterweight champ Miguel Cotto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. This high-stakes boxing event will be held a few pounds shy of the max weight of 147 pounds.
Manny "Pac-Man" Pacquiao (49-3-2, 37 KOs) is the first Filipino boxer to have won five world titles in different weight divisions in flyweight, super bantamweight, featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and his most recent addition, a junior welterweight title against Ricky Hatton. Pacquiao has beaten major boxing champions including Juan Manuel Marquez, Oscar De La Hoya, Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barerra.
Miguel Cotto (34-1, 27 KOs) of Puerto Rico currently holds the WBO belt and comes from a long legacy of boxers. He has earned the title of AMB Welter Champion six times consecutively -- his only loss to Antonio Margarito in 2008, has been under scrutiny due to illegal hand wraps worn by the Mexican boxer.
"Both fighters have garnered numerous belt titles and that's what's so appealing about the Pacquiao vs. Cotto matchup," stated Alexandra Owens, Managing Editor. "The WBO Diamond belt is at stake, as is the opportunity for Pacquiao or Cotto to garner the spotlight in the boxing world."
Cotto is known for having a large fan base -- something Pacquiao claims attracted him to the match. Pacquiao gave Top Rank chairman Bob Arum the go ahead and book the event last June. According to Arum, "He (Pacquiao) was impressed by Cotto's fan support and told me it reminded him of how the British fans stand with Ricky Hatton." As one of the most anticipated boxing matches since Mayweather vs. Marquez, Pacquiao vs. Cotto tickets are TicketLiquidator's Ticket of the Week.
