Sit with Evander Holyfield at the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight -- for a price

Charity is auctioning off chance to watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao fight with Evander Holyfield

Acquiring a seat for Saturday's title fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao has reached golden-ticket-in-a-chocolate-bar proportions.

Luckily, you don't need to channel your inner Veruca Salt to find a decent ticket for one of the most anticipated showdowns in boxing history -- you'll just need a lot of money.

A charity is auctioning off a VIP package for the fight that includes watching the bout with former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield. The package, which is for one person, includes flight and hotel accommodations in addition to having dinner with Holyfield. 

The auction, which is being held on EBay, claims that 100% of the proceeds will go to benefit CharityVision International, a nonprofit that works to help people with eyesight problems in developing countries. The high bid for the package stood at $37,100 as of Monday morning.

With tickets to the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight going for more than $100,000, taking in dinner and the match with Holyfield might be the best value still available for anyone looking to be in the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night.

Of course, Mexico apparently is still a good option too.
