Mayweather vs Mcgregor :This is good for Sky Sports They Get the chance Telegraph Sport

Sky Sports Box Office will show the hugely-anticipated clash between undefeated former world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather and current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

The two fighters go head-to-head at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26, and Sky have announced it will be available on Sky Sports Box Office for £19.95 in the UK and €24.95 in the Republic of Ireland.

It promises to be the hottest ticket in sport. So far, though, fans aren’t exactly storming the box office to buy tickets for.

A check online Saturday revealed hundreds – even thousands – of seats still available from Ticketmaster. There are so many open seats that fans with enough room left on their credit cards can buy six tickets together in 162 different spots throughout the arena.

That might be because of the astronomical prices set by promoters – the cheapest original tickets on Ticketmaster have a face value of $3,500. Or maybe fans are just waiting for the right time to buy, hoping the price will go down.

Either way, promoter Leonard Ellerbe isn’t concerned. He says the fight will not only sell out, but break records for the richest gate.

“We’re very excited and very happy with ticket sales so far,” Ellerbe said. “We’re well on our way to smashing our own record which transcended the sport.”

That record was a $72,198,500 gate set by Mayweather in his 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao. That live gate was more than three times bigger than any previous boxing gate.

Still, five days after tickets first went on sale, seats throughout the arena are widely available. They are not, however, for anyone a little light in the wallet.

Prices start at $3,500 – plus another $300 or so for buyer fees – and climb to $10,000 near the ring. There are “platinum” seats that go for as much as $14,995. More related news on Independent

For the many U.S boxing fans interested in purchasing the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor fight on August 26, they won’t have to pay quite as much as the Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight. According to news from Lance Pugmire, the asking price for the Mayweather-McGregor fight on Showtime pay-per-view is $89.99 for regular PPV, and $99 high definition.

This is the exact same price as the Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight from 2015. That fight did well in drawing 4.6 million buys. Showtime boss Stephen Espinoza views it as a supply and demand type of issue. The boxing fans want to see the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight in high numbers. This would justify the higher prices. However, you can also justify the prices being lower due to the high demand. A lot of boxing would be more inclined to purchase the Mayweather-McGregor fight if Showtime would drop the price to a more affordable price, especially given the fact that the 29-year-old McGregor has never boxed in his life before as a pro.

This move could backfire in asking the boxing public to pay $89 to see the Mayweather-McGregor fight on PPV. There’s no doubt a lot of boxing fans that are still angry at Mayweather for his high priced fight against Pacquiao. Those fans are going to look at the price tag for the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight and dismiss the fight right away. Those fans are not going to want to pay close to $100 to see Mayweather fight a wrestler guy, who has no experience, and who looked terrible in the leaked video of him sparring Chris Van Heerden. On the fact of it, the high price tag for the Mayweather-McGregor fight just seems wrong. When you pick an easy mark to beat up with no experience in boxing, you arguably should have it on non-PPV. Asking fans to pay big money to see you beat up a novice is just off putting.

”The Floyd Mayweather @TheNotoriousMMA pay per view price will be $89.95 — same as the Pacquiao fight – $10 more for HD,” said Lance Pugmire on his Twitter.

Whether Showtime will drop the prices for the Mayweather-McGregor fight based on the early PPV sales is the big question. You would have to believe that Showtime would realize that they have a non-seller at some point before the night of the August 26 fight. A smart thing for them would be to drop the prices steeply to try and make the best of it. The fight is expected to bring in tremendous numbers on PPV. Some think the fight can eclipse the Mayweather-Pacquiao PPV record of 4.6 million buys. That would be astonishing, considering that the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight is viewed as such a mismatch. There isn’t even a handicap for McGregor. He’s going to be going into the Mayweather fight the same experience as anyone off the street, and the boxing and MMA public is being asked to pay top dollar to see the fight at $89 to $99. McGregor has shown good stand up skills in the UFC, but he’s not been fighting trained boxers with world class talent.

“This match-up is unprecedented,” said Showtime boss Stephen Espinosa to USA Today. “There has been overwhelming demand from fight fans, and it’s great to be able to deliver.”

Mayweather vs McGregor Allan Fox write a article on Boxing News 24 start their 4-city International tour on Tuesday in Los Angeles to sell their August 26 fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The tickets are selling fast for the 4 news conferences for the Mayweather-McGregor, according to Pugmire. That shows how much interest there is in this fight. It’s hard to understand for someone that knows boxing. What this shows is how important casual boxing and MMA fans are for selling PPV. You can argue the casual fans aren’t aware of how much of a mismatch this fight is between Mayweather and McGregor. If the fans did know, they would surely stay away from the fight like the plague. Purchasing a mismatch is like taking your money and tossing it away. The casual fans think McGregor has a chance against Mayweather. If the 4 Mayweather does lose, it would show how his advanced age and 2 years of inactivity has hurt his game.

McGregor is a better talker than he is a fighter when it comes to boxing. He’s going to do a good job of making it interesting at the 4 press conferences and weigh-in for the fight. McGregor talks a good game. That’s the best part about him. McGregor’s gift for gab has done wonders in selling his fights in the UFC. His fights have been selling over 1 million buys since December 2015. Even Mayweather didn’t sell PPV buys at the same rate that McGregor has been doing. Mayweather had some big fights against Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, Saul Canelo Alvarez and Oscar De La Hoya, but he wasn’t able to sell at the same steady rate that McGregor has been doing. This is obviously why Mayweather chose to fight McGregor instead of a boxer for his comeback. He can make more money. McGregor’s last fight against Eddie Alvarez brought in 1.3 million PPV buys. Before that, McGregor pulled in 1,650,000 buys against Nate Diaz in their rematch at 1.5 million buys in their first fight.

Boxing fans can expect a lot of theatrics between McGregor and Mayweather for the 4 press conferences. Hopefully it doesn’t end up with McGregor throwing any bottled water like he did in the past. The fighters need to keep their theatrics clean. But there definitely be some kind of likely staged theatrics to get the casual boxing interested in the fight enough for them to want to pay the huge $89 to $99 asking price.

A big win for Mayweather (49-0) over McGregor, takes him past former heavyweight world champion Rocky Marciano with an incredible 50-0 record. That’s not been done in boxing. Mayweather has a spotless record during his pro career. Of course, he’s also been quite lucky with controversial wins over Jose Luis Castillo and Marcos Maidana. Mayweather also knocked out Victor Ortiz in what many boxing fans saw as a cheap shot in 2011.

Fans who were expecting Floyd Mayweather to look significantly diminished, out of shape, or somehow otherwise unready for a fight with Conor McGregor probably didn’t take much heart from recently released footage of the boxing all-time great hitting the bag in the gym. Mayweather showed off his fast hands and slick movement, as he prepares to fight McGregor on August 26th in Las Vegas Nevada.

But fear not, McGregor fans… or at least fear less. “The Notorious” Irishman has been putting his own time in, and released some footage of a recent training session on Instagram.

You've never seen these moves. #Ghost

Brian Mazique of Forbes News, the full broadcast team for the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing match has been revealed, and fans of Showtime Boxing should be familiar with the crew.

Mauro Ranallo, who recently signed on with Bellator MMA and previously worked with Strikeforce and the WWE will handle the play-by-play. Legendary boxing analyst and Hall of Famer Al Bernstein will provide the color analysis along with former world champion Paulie Malignaggi.

Mayweather vs Mcgregor Showtime PPV

Veteran ringside reporter Jim Gray will handle his normal duties, while Steve Farhood will be the unofficial ringside scorer and Brian Custer will host the card. This is the exact team that handles all of Showtime Boxing’s major events.

Because the event will be televised via Showtime pay-per-view these selections were the most logical.

Ranallo is known for his quick wit, golden voice and rapid-fire pop culture references. He is massively respected in most combat sports communities. Bernstein is one of the most iconic boxing voices and personalities on the scene.

He’s impartial and his presence delivers an element of authenticity to any event–even one as lopsided as this one. Of all the fighters turned analyst, the ones who have done the best work on the mic have been Andre Ward, Bobby Czyz and Malignaggi.

Many fighters understand the sport, but not all of them have the ability to articulate it in a way that fight fans can digest. Malignaggi has that gift.

Love or hate Gray, he asks the questions that people want to know the answers to and he’s not as dramatic or exploitative as others who have done his job in the past. He’s also had a great rapport with Mayweather which doesn’t hurt his chances of retaining his gig for this event.

Farhood is as impartial as Bernstein and he almost always delivers a logical scorecard. Last but certainly not least is the uber professional Custer. Beyond the fact that he has overcome illness to become one of the faces of Showtime Boxing, he’s also pretty darn good at his job.

His interviews before bouts with fighters and his hot takes after fights legitimize him as a boxing guy.

Overall, this is a strong team for a mega event that will almost certainly prove to be less entertaining than the build up, but who am I kidding? I’m still going to be watching.

Mayweather vs Mcgregor Tickets The Billion dollar fight tickets available to purchase now hurry up guys limited seat available.So grab your lucky tickets now.



McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather was finally confirmed on Wednesday evening, fight fans have been clamoring to get their way to Las Vegas for the highly anticipated bout.

Bookies already have the fight at odds on to break the all-time pay-per-view buy record set by Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather in May of 2015 and it looks as if ticket prices will also be similar to that historic bout.

For the so-called ‘Fight of the Century’ (Pacquiao vs Mayweather), tickets were almost impossible to come by with a huge number being distributed to sponsors, promoters, and celebrities before they even went on general sale.

When the public eventually did have a chance to try and purchase tickets for the event, they were being sold for prices varying from $1,500 to $7,500 and sold out in a matter of seconds. However, in the United States, it is legal to resell tickets online via third party platforms and some were resold for as much as $128,000.

For Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather, a similar scenario is very likely to unfold and, although tickets have not yet gone on official sale, some reliable sites are already distributing them for astronomical sums.
