When it comes to the Conner McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight, dubbing it the "biggest fight in history" might not be pure hyperbole. When it comes to this fight, everything is huge! From both fighters' egos, to the estimated record-breaking PPV numbers, to the paychecks the two men are going to take home - and now also the ticket prices for the event.
The fight will be taking place on August 26th, 2017 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and if you want to watch the fight in person it ain't going to be cheap - no matter where you sit.
Looking at the box office ticket prices one will see that the cheapest seats in the house, the farthest away from the ring as possible, are going for $2537! If you move up a little to the rear of the lower level you are going to be paying over $5000 and once you hit the floor level the tickets are currently going for $20,000-$80,000.
But, then there are the cream-of-the-crop seats. The ones on the floor directly around the ring. These front-row, top-dog seats are going for $98,500 per ticket!
To put it into a little perspective:
Courtside tickets for game 7 of the 2010 NBA finals between the Boston Celtics and the L.A. Lakers reportedly went for over $57,000/ticket. Apparently someone payed $58,000 per ticket for two tickets to game 5 of this year's NBA finals between Golden State and Cleveland. And on the morning of the 2013 Wimbledon Men's final between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, some tickets were going for a reported $65,000.
And remember that the fight is still almost two months away and the resale market for the event hasn't even got going yet.
Still, $98,500/ticket is a whole lotta money. Then again, if you want to sit front-row at the fight that price may end up being a bargain based on what the prices get to on the resale market as we get closer to the August 26th battle.
