The Nevada State Athletic Commission reports that the third fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12 did bang-up business at the live gate.

With a gate revenue of $11,648,300, it's the ninth-highest live gate in Nevada history, and the 15,498 tickets sold to the fight are the highest since the all-time revenue king from 2007, the fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The new Nevada live gate top ten is:

Main Event Date Live Gate
1 De La Hoya vs Mayweather 2007-05-05 $18,419,200
2 Lewis vs Holyfield II 1999-11-13 $16,860,300
3 De La Hoya vs Pacquiao 2008-12-06 $14,380,300
4 Holyfield vs Tyson II 1997-06-28 $14,277,200
5 Holyfield vs Tyson I 1996-11-09 $14,150,700
6 Tyson vs McNeeley 1995-08-19 $13,965,600
7 De La Hoya vs Trinidad 1999-09-18 $12,949,500
8 Hopkins vs De La Hoya 2004-09-18 $12,782,650
9 Pacquiao vs Marquez III 2011-11-12 $11,648,300
10 Hopkins vs Calzaghe 2008-04-19 $11,636,400


For comparison, the May 7 fight between Pacquiao and Shane Mosley grossed $8,882,600, while the September 17 fight between Mayweather and Victor Ortiz did a gate of $9,000,000. That makes Pacquiao vs Marquez the biggest live gate success of the year, and by a pretty good margin.
