Wanna Watch Mayweather/Pacquiao? It’ll Cost You
The most hyped boxing match in years also comes with a hefty price tag.
We've known for years that the moment Pacquiao and Mayweather signed on for their inevitable showdown that it would be one of, if not the richest fight of all-time.
Now we're getting a clearer picture of just how expensive this thing will really be. If you want to watch these two men punch each other senseless--or, in Mayweather's case, spend the entire fight avoiding contact whatsoever--it's going to cost you a slick $99 for HD. The standard definition version is a mere $89.
Yeah, both of those are record prices.
They're expecting the streaming service purchase to be in the $300 million range. If so, that would nearly double the previous record of $152 million, also a Mayweather fight.
And in case you felt like taking a trip to Vegas the weekend of May 2 to catch the fight live, I hope you've saved up somewhere between $3500 and $250,000. Yes, that's really the expected price range.
