CBS Corporation president and CEO Leslie Moonves has finally calmed down nerves when he stepped in and ironed out a contract dispute involving the upcoming megafight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

Yahoo Sports said the dispute among Bob Arum's Top Rank, Mayweather Promotions and MGM Grand about the signing of the contract for the fight was solved with a conference call. It added that the concerns of the camps had to do with the "allocation of tickets, credentials and hotel rooms."

In a similar report, CNN said that there were also questions on how many tickets will be given to each fighter for the match dubbed as the "Fight of the Century."

"There was a craze for tickets and under our agreement with Mayweather Promotions, we felt we were being deprived of our fair share of the tickets (from) the standpoint of number and location. It was very, very important to my fighter Manny Pacquiao, to the Philippines people... Manny has friends and family like you can't believe -- that will be in account for 800 or 900 tickets themselves," the Top Rank CEO told CNN.

Arum confirmed with Yahoo Sports that he and Top Rank president Todd duBoef met with Moonves and Al Haymon, Mayweather's adviser, address their concerns and problems on the upcoming fight on May 2 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

"We resolved all of the issues and now we're waiting for the paperwork. I said on the call that if what we agreed upon is in the paperwork we receive, we will sign it and the tickets will be released," Arum added.

After the contract was signed, Yahoo Sports said tickets will be sold at $10,000, $7,500, $5,000, $3,500, $2,500 and $1,500. None of the $10,000 seats will be made available to the public.

It was noted that the tickets will be available starting Thursday 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m PT at the MGM Grand and Ticket Master websites. Buyers can also call 800-745-300 to purchase tickets but there is a limit of four tickets per person.

Meanwhile, closed circuit tickets at MGM properties in Las Vegas, will be available Thursday at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT. "Tickets can be purchased at the individual hotels' box offices or by calling either 866-799-7711 or 800-745-3000. Closed circuit tickets are $150 apiece plus taxes and fees. Buyers are limited to eight closed circuit tickets apiece," added Yahoo Sports.

Closed circuit viewing will be available on the following venues: MGM, Bellagio, Aria, Vdara, The Signature, Mandalay Bay, Delano, Monte Carlo, Mirage, New York-New York, Luxor, Excalibur and Circus Circus in Las Vegas.
