Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor is expected to generate one of the highest pay-per-view sales totales in boxing history. It helps when the price of said PPV is expected to be through the roof. The cost will be $89.95 for standard definition and $99.95 for high definition, Showtime spokesperson Madelyn Flax told USAToday Sports.
If you’re a little surprised by that price tag, you shouldn’t be. It’s about the same price Mayweather’s last superfight went for when he took on Manny Pacquiao in 2015. That fight generated nearly $400 million in revenue for all parties involved and expectations are for this fight to rival that, if not surpass it.
