Mayweather vs. McGregor: Tickets will be very expensive for Aug. 26 fight date
Get prepared to shell out a pretty penny if you want to watch Mayweather-McGregor in Las Vegas
Oh, you want to see former pound-for-pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather and UFC champion Conor McGregor fight it out live in Las Vegas? It's going to cost you -- a lot.
According to Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, tickets for the fight will start at $500 and range up to $10,000. The $500 tickets will be limited, of course, with the average ticket cost expected to be in the thousands of dollars.
The Mayweather-McGregor bout will go down on Saturday, Aug. 26 live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The listed capacity is 20,000 for boxing, so an eight-figure gate chould go along with a record pay-per-view buy rate making this potentially the biggest money-making combat sports event of all-time.
Showtime will broadcast the event on PPV at a price of $89.95 ($99.95 for high definition).
By the time Mayweather-McGregor ticket hit the resale market, expect the best to exceed low-to-mid six-figures. Tickets for Mayweather-Pacquiao went for more than $300,000 a week ahead of the fight.
