McGregor v Mayeather the money fight

Sponsored by Betsafe


Sky Sports Box Office beat BT Sport to screen this blockbuster of a fight on August 26th for a fantastic price of £19.95 which will upset many US fans as they will have to pay a minimum of $89.99. Sky will have plenty of build up programs for this event across the TV Channels, in addition to all pre-fight build up and lots of behind the scenes footage. The fight which is seen as the biggest even in combat history hasn't done so well at the box office with Ticketmaster still showing many open seats available not only in the hundreds but thousands, is this due to the value that the tickets are currently with the cheapest priced at $3,500. 

Showtime announced they will be showing the Mcgregor vs Mayweather fight with a cost of $89.99, this fight is expected to break all records in terms of PPV a record currently held by Mayweather for his fight against Pacquiao.

MGM will be showing the fight at a few of their properties along the Las Vegas Strip, while many bars, clubs and pubs will be using this opportunity to pack out their venues.

How much would you be willing to pay to watch the biggest sporting event in combat history? Well in the USA it will put you back $89.95-$99.95 showing on Showtime and HBO. This is a snippet considering to watch in person will put you back between $1,500 and $7,500. For a front row seat, you are looking at splashing out around $80k and that's before they get inflated and put up for resale.

The mega fight will be shown in high-definition which will cost you the higher pricer $99.95, this is the same price as the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight in May 2015.
Fox Sports will show a two-hour preliminary card prior the the PPV Showtime event, the undercards have not yet been announced but being only 6 weeks away they should be revealed soon.

I guess the big question is will the Mayweather vs Mcgregor fight exceed the same PPV’s as the seemingly unreachable record set by Mayweather vs Pacquiao 4.4 million purchases.
