Las Vegas (July 7, 2011)...Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Friday, July 8, for the biggest boxing event of 2011 "STAR POWER: Mayweather vs. Ortiz." The welterweight championship showdown, set for Saturday, Sept. 17 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, is the hottest ticket in the boxing universe.

The 12-round mega-fight, which will be contested for Ortiz's WBC Welterweight World Championship, will take place Saturday, Sept. 17 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev.


"Floyd Mayweather is the biggest star in boxing and it was proven once again as media and fans turned out in huge numbers during last week's press tour. Mayweather's draw combined with Ortiz's desire to successfully defend his title makes the name of this fight, Star Power, a perfect fit."
- Leonard Ellerbe, CEO, Mayweather Promotions

"Victor Ortiz has the power and that is the story line. Is the star, the undefeated Mayweather going to remain undefeated, or is the power going to put a stop to that?"
- Richard Schaefer, CEO, Golden Boy Promotions


· In his seven pay-per-view fights, Mayweather has generated a star-bursting 6.9 million buys and $375 million in pay-per-view revenue, $78 million of which was from his fight against Sugar Shane Mosley on May 1, 2010.

· Mayweather's star power has also attracted Hollywood's and sports' biggest name celebrities who have been seen ringside for his past fights including Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Muhammad Ali, Leonardo DiCaprio, Paris Hilton, Will Smith and Jamie Foxx. He has also become a crossover star with this fight marking his fifth HBO 24/7 series appearance, the most by any fighter.

ORTIZ - The Power
