Are you searching for Mayweather vs McGregor tickets already? Keep on reading the latest developments. UFC star Conor McGregor and retired boxing star Floyd Mayweather had exchanged an on-and-off war of words since last year but a potential Mayweather vs McGregor fight might be happening this summer.
Mayweather was quoted of the rumoured next super fight, “It’s possible you know. It was a name that was shot at me but the rumour that ya’ll been hearing, is the rumours that I started, may not be a rumour, so keep your fingers crossed. It may be a boxer versus an MMA fighter, you just don’t know.”
Mayweather’s comments were followed by a social media post on McGregor’s Facebook page on Sunday morning of a mock-up Mayweather vs McGregor staredown with the tagline MMA vs Boxing. If there is a super fight this year, this could be it in terms of numbers, Mayweather added, ‘Well, he already knows my number, I talked about that on the TV the other day. Every time I go out there and compete at the highest level you know my number is of course $100million (£69million) or better.”
The truth is Floyd’s eyeing for a return from his retirement. The Mayweather vs Pacquiao super fight was still fresh in our minds in terms of astronomical numbers because of public demand but we also know that it doesn’t met the people’s expectation.
So how much Mayweather vs McGregor tickets could be? First, we talked Pacquiao/Mayweather fight that weren’t cheap at all. It has a guaranteed $100 million purse, $72 million in ticket sales — which doesn’t include a record $19 million in national closed-circuit revenue at more than 5,000 bars, restaurants and commercial establishments — and a record $6.9 million in closed-circuit revenue. At one time, the MayPac tickets were posted the least of $3,837 each with the most expensive ticket listed at $351,005.
Could we see a Mayweather vs McGregor tickets at $351,005 each? Not so fast. First, the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight was built for five years more or less. The super expensive tickets were the product of long-time build up of the fight. Second, MMA sport is really different from boxing. A boxer cannot transfer his skills to a cage because he only knows boxing whereas an MMA fighter can transfer his MMA skills to a boxing arena because boxing is one of those skills. Remember how he destroyed Nick Diaz face on his last fight and granting he lose on submission, not on strikes. So, McGregor has still plenty of time to adjust.
Mayweather hinted that his price tag is $100million on this potential fight with McGregor. So keep an eye with fingers crossed on Mayweather vs McGregor tickets that will be posted on this page.
