Next month, undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather goes to-to-toe with UFC Champion Conor McGregor in one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year. To watch it at home, however, won’t be cheap.
According to The Los Angeles Times, the pay-per-view price for the Las Vegas bout has been set at $89.95. If you want to watch in HD, you’ll have to pay another $10 on top of that. If the exorbitant sum rings a bell, that’s because Mayweather’s 2015 bout with Manny Pacquiao was charged similarly.
For some, the figures fuels the suspicion that the match is a nothing but a quick money grab for both men. Others, however, have claimed that $89.95 is the going rate for what is a veritable “superfight.”
Will you pay $89.95 or $99.95 to watch Mayweather-McGregor on August 26?
Last month, ESPN used sports science to predict the outcome of the match.
