The stadium will be set up to seat 45,000 people, a number that can be adjusted should the demand for tickets increase. Ticket prices will range from $700 to $50 for the fight.

A press conference to announced the fight is scheduled for Jan. 18 in Texas and will be followed by a press event on Jan. 19 in New York City.

Two of the world's top fighters fighting on the same date is extremely rare in boxing and if Mayweather and Pacquiao move ahead with these dates it would put HBO in the difficult position of potentially choosing one fight over another.
