Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor PPV price: It's going to cost a pretty penny

Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor is expected to generate one of the highest pay-per-view sales totales in boxing history. It helps when the price of said PPV is expected to be through the roof. The cost will be $89.95 for standard definition and $99.95 for high definition, Showtime spokesperson Madelyn Flax told USAToday Sports.

If you're a little surprised by that price tag, you shouldn't be. It's about the same price Mayweather's last superfight went for when he took on Manny Pacquiao in 2015. That fight generated nearly $400 million in revenue for all parties involved and expectations are for this fight to rival that, if not surpass it.

And honestly, if you're paying to watch this fight, do yourself the favor of coughing up the extra $10 for HD. You'll feel better watching in comfort rather than straining your eyes to see the action.

Mayweather and McGregor are set to kick off an international press tour on Tuesday in Los Angeles that will span four days and three countries. If anyone was questioning whether to buy the fight, I'm sure the next four days will go a long way in changing minds.
