It won’t cost you a fortune to watch Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather

A lot cheaper than Mayweather wanted

Ben Kiely

At this price, Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather has a great chance of beating the pay-per-view buy record.

When it was first announced that Conor McGregor would be taking on Floyd Mayweather in the money fight to trump all money fights, there was a genuine concern over the cost of the pay-per-view.

The original estimate was near the $100 dollar mark, which would set us lot back nearly £76.

This rumour was intensified by Eddie Hearn’s recent comments that Mayweather would indeed be looking to sell the fight for a c-note a pop.

While Showtime will be broadcasting the bout in the States, Sky Sports Boxing will be showing it to the masses this side of the Atlantic and their price for the PPV is very reasonable.

Sky customers will be able to purchase the event through Sky Sports Box Office for £19.95 in the UK (€24.95 in the Republic of Ireland). There is an important thing to note regarding how you book the fight though.

The cost will remain at the prices mentioned above until midnight on Friday 25 August. After this point the cost will still be £19.95 (€24.95 in ROI) if bookings are made via remote control and online, but will cost £24.95 (€29.95) if booked via the phone.

Not bad, not bad at all.
