If you see on other major sports leagues such as the National Basketball Association, National Football League and National Hockey League that they using an instant replay to see some lapses made by referee right it might be possible in boxing also. The chief of the Nevada Athletic Commission has found a way to review possible lapses made by referees in boxing matches. The solution comes in the form of the instant replay, and for the first time in boxing history, it will be implemented in the third fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez in November. The commission has approved to use instant replays on the Pacquiao vs Marquez fight on Nov. 12 in Las Vegas. Instant replay is the replaying of video footage of an event or incident in a sport event very soon after it has occurred.

Expensive tickets for Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 fight

Pacquiao vs Marquez 3
Boxing fans can't wait to see again Manny Pacquiao in action once again against Juan Manuel Marquez this coming November 12. Tickets to the rubber match won’t be available until the first week of August but Arum said the priciest will retail at $1,200, while the cheapest will be sold at around $200. The 17,000-seat MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas will host the World Boxing Organization welterweight title fight.

The $1,200 ringside seat will be the second most expensive for a Pacquiao headliner. When Pacquiao fought the legendary Oscar De La Hoya in December 2008 also at the MGM Grand, the price of a ringsise seat was $1,500. When Pacquiao faced Shane Mosley last month, a ringside ticket sold at $1,000 and Arum remains optimistic the extra $200 will not matter since Marquez should put on a gutsier stand against Pacquiao.
