Ray Lewis of Youngstown holds up 6 tickets for the up coming Kelly Pavlik fight. Lewis waited in line at the Chevy Center on Saturday morning during a big snow storm.

Wow.

Mother Nature wasn't the only one providing blizzard activity today.

Fans of boxer Kelly Pavlik created their own.

By 10:30 this morning, more than 5,000 Pavlik tickets were sold.

And if you were eager for the cheap seats of $100 and $50, those were gone in minutes.

Shocked, stunned and saddened were the emotions of the more than 200 people who were down at the Chevy Centre this morning.

Only an hour earlier, they were pumped with excitement waiting for the sales to start.

By 9:50, Chevy Centre staff opened the doors to line people up for the 10 a.m. sales start.

Within minutes, fans were coming out the doors saying the $50 and $100s were gone.

We'll update this story later today.

EARLIER POST:

Watching ticketmaster.com, as of 10:15 this morning, you could no longer buy pairs of tickets in the $50 and $100 sections for the Kelly Pavlik fight.

Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. Pairs of $50 tickets could not be purchased by 10:02 a.m. and $100 pairs weren't offered by 10:08 a.m.

We will update this as the day proceeds.

We have staff at the Chevy Centre this morning.

we were in line at the ticketmaster at Giant Eagle in Boardman before tickets "went on sale" at 10 a.m. The first person in line was told that all the $50 tickets were sold out and no $100 seats together were available. Before they went on sale the woman in front of us in line told us the $50 seats were all gone, a friend of her sons had them for sale for $95...how is it that the scalpers were able to buy ALL the tickets before they went on sale???? Every scalper site on the internet as well as Ebay has tickets available at a premium price of course. This should be illegal, it is totally unfair to all those fans in line this morning.

YOUR EXACTLY RIGHT! I WAS ONLINE FROM 9:30 AND AT EXACTLY 10AM I TRIED TO PURCHASE THE TICKES AND NOTHING WAS AVAILABLE! SCALPERS USE A SYSTEM WHERE THEY CAN PURCHASE A VERY LARGE AMOUNT OF TICKETS AT ONCE! AT 10:40 TICKETS WERE BEING SOLD ON EBAY FOR AS HIGH AS 1,400 A PIECE! IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED! THE PEOPLE THAT ENJOY AND ARE LOYAL TO KELLY CAN'T EVEN GO SEE HIM IN HIS HOMETOWN NOW CAUSE OF THESE IDIOTS!
