Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor: Tickets resale going for ₦47million

Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor: Tickets resale going for ₦47million

It is being billed as the biggest (and possibly richest) fight in combat sports history – and tickets are on sale at eye-watering prices.

When former five-weight boxing world champion Floyd Mayweather and UFC lightweight title-holder Conor McGregor step into the ring at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 26 August, some 20,000 people will be in the arena.

The scrap for tickets during Monday’s release was intense, short-lived and disappointing for the majority. But will anyone be willing to shell out $150,000 (£115,000/₦47,287,500) to be there?


Ticket resale website StubHub has tickets on sale at that price, with several others at a comparatively cheap $100,000 (£75,000/₦31,525,000).

American Mayweather, 40, will come out of retirement to face McGregor in the 29-year-old Irishman’s first professional boxing bout.

McGregor’s lack of experience has led to some criticism of the bout, from which both men are expected to earn as much as $100m (£78.4m/₦315,250,000).
