If you can’t afford to attend Mayweather vs. McGregor and balked at the $89.95 pay-per-view price, then perhaps it’s time to hit the local cinema. ESPN has revealed that Mayweather Promotions and Fathom Events have joined forces to broadcast the super fight at select movie theaters across the United States.
A $40 cinema ticket will entitle fans to view both the main event and undercard, which is heavily rumored to include undefeated boxer, Gervonta Davis. Fathom Events has hosted many UFC pay-per-view fights in theaters previously, while Mayweather is no stranger to fighting on the silver screen, either.
“The buzz that my fight against Conor McGregor is getting has been great already, so what better way to watch this larger than life event than on the big screen?” said Mayweather. “We brought boxing back to movie theaters eight years ago and it was a huge success … this event is on a different level and I’m so glad we are giving fans another way to see all the action. Grab your popcorn because this is a fight no one will want to miss.”
Sadly, said popcorn doesn’t come included.
The “fight of the century” is less than a month away and takes place August 26. Here’s why one writer is desperate for Conor McGregor to win.
