The upcoming fight of the century, Mayweather v McGregor, has been labeled as the most grossing fight in the boxing history. The tickets are running high in price. Since the release of the tickets on Monday, all the first batch tickets are sold out.
The reason is obvious, both fighters have such prominent statuses in the world of fighting. Floyd Mayweather is the former five-weight boxing world champ. Meanwhile, Conor McGregor is the UFC lightweight champ. McGregor will be migrating to the boxing world, debuting as rookie against Mayweather. Both will meet in the ring at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The date is around the corner! It will happen on August 26.
Since the announcement of the official bout, a lot of folks have been pretty hyped with the ways they can catch up with it. There will be 20,000 attendances in the arena. The first batch of the ticket was pretty aggravated . On Monday, some fans were outrageous and disappointed. The thing was that the ticket turned to $150,000. Who the hell want to break his bank for attending the venue off their favorite fighters?
In some popular ticket retailers like StubHub, the ticket was offered at that price. Of course it is exaggerating for some folks. But some other tickets are cheaper, $100,000. But still, this number is insane.
Mayweather, 40, has come out from his retirement to answer McGregor’s challenge. The Irish 29-year-old professional fighter has been baiting him since the last 4 conferences in 4 states. McGregor’s lack of boxing experience has not been convincing some folks. Both men will earn as much as a hundred million dollars. That’s why this bout has led to hard and outrageous criticism.
But what many people did not know is that the UFC president Dana White did not expect this. It was not in his agenda. He never wanted what happened in 2015 relating to Manny v Mayweather bout occurs again. We still remember the tickets sales were intervened by the brokers.
Dana’s problem solving is to sell the seats through the official ticketing retailers with such strict rules. For instance, in the Ticketmaster site, the purchase is limited to 2 tickets per member. Also, the transaction can only be done by the members who receive the code from the site.
However, the codes were available in common marketplace, allowing non-members at the site can conduct the transaction. The prices of the code varies from £385 to £7,706.
StubHub, in the other hand claimed that they have not found the users who put the insane priced ticket.
