Floyd Mayweather And Conor McGregor Fight Earns $23 Million Less In Ticket Sales Than Manny Pacquiao Bout

September 6. 2017

Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight on August 26, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For months leading up to the Mayweather v. McGregor boxing match, I wrote on this site and my Twitter page that the ticket prices were way too high. A few tickets were $500, but the majority were placed on sale for $3,000 to $100,000. Over 5,000 were unsold. The promoters of the fight were overconfident in thinking the tickets would sell out, but they were not quickly snapped up by the public. Ticket brokers also shied away from buying many tickets, for fear they would be unable to unload them.

Reports initially stated Mayweather v. McGregor grossed $80,000,000 in ticket sales. However, the Nevada State Athletics Commission refuted earlier numbers, revealing the fight actually grossed $55,414,865.79. This figure is $23,000,000 below Mayweather's ticket sales for his 2015 fight against Manny Pacquiao.

The public and press are now questioning if the pay-per-view numbers for Mayweather v. McGregor are lower as well. There are estimates of the pay-per-view numbers floating around online. However, no official figures with receipts have been released to verify sales.
