MANILA, Philippines – The fourth fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez last Sunday sold a total of 15,430 tickets at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) announced today.

This translates to $10,888,890, which, according to NSAC executive director Keith Keizer, is the 13th largest fight gate revenue in Nevada history.

Pacquiao and Marquez are each entitled to a share of the gate receipts.

HBO, which aired the fight on pay-per-view in the US, has yet to release the number of buys for the fight.

Marquez knocked out Pacquiao in the sixth round to put a fitting end to their epic rivalry.
