  • Mayweather, Pacquiao bout delivers knockout ticket prices

The MGM Grand in Las Vegas is expected to pack in close to 16,500 for the fight but estimates had only 500 to 1,000 tickets going on sale to the public with the rest earmarked for the two fighters, the casino, sponsors and promoters.

  • $53m for 800 Roebourne Aboriginals

    More than $53.6 million was spent last financial year on services for about 800 Aboriginal residents of Roebourne in the Pilbara, according to a State Government report.
