LOS ANGELES — The pay-per-view price for Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor was set on Monday, and now fight fans know how much they will need to shell out in order to see this once-in-a-lifetime fight in person.
Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe announced on Tuesday following the first stop of the Mayweather-McGregor press tour that tickets for the Aug. 26 fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will range from $500 to $10,000. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on July 24.
By comparison, tickets for Mayweather-Pacquaio in 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena — a smaller venue — started at $1,500 and topped out at $7,500. The capacity for boxing at the T-Mobile Arena is 20,000.
Mayweather and McGregor met face-to-face for the first time on Tuesday since the fight was announced last month in front of 11,000 fans at Staples Center. The three-country press tour will continue on Wednesday in Toronto with stops in New York City on Thursday before concluding on Friday in London, England.
