Mayweather-McGregor superfight to be shown live in US movie theatres
Fans will pay US$40 to watch the fight in cinemas across the country
Movie theatres around the USA will show the August 26 fight between Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Conor McGregor.
The bout between the undefeated boxer and the Irish UFC champion will cost US$99.95 (HK$780) on high-definition pay-per-view TV. Tickets for the fight at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena will range from $500 to $10,000 – and there aren’t many $500 seats.
Meanwhile, movie theatre tickets for the fighting spectacle of the year are being sold at $40 per adult in advance.
Fathom Events and Mayweather Promotions announced the partnership on Tuesday.
Mayweather is coming out of retirement for a boxing match against the UFC star who has never boxed professionally.
