It was speculated about for months and is now set to be the fight to watch in 2017. So if you’re not planning on making the trip to Las Vegas yourself next month, how can you watch the fight on Sky Box Office here in the UK?
It promises to be one of the biggest PPV fights of the last few years, a fascinating clash between two superstars of the fighting world.
Floyd Mayweather is widely regarded as one of the greatest boxers ever. Still undefeated as a professional, his 49-0 record includes 26 wins by knock-out. He is also a five-times world champion, and one of the richest sportsman in the world. Despite having turned 40-year-old earlier this year, Mayweather is still in fine shape and is the overwhelming favourite for the bout.
Connor McGregor, on the other hand, is a mixed martial arts professional. The Dubliner is currently competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and has won 21 of his 24 career fights. He is the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion.
While McGregor, 28, has a distinct age advantage over Mayweather, the American will be more at home as the match will be a boxing match, meaning McGregor cannot use his usual deadly arsenal of kicks and other martial arts moves.
The money reportedly involved in the fight is eye-watering, with Mayweather expected to take home a minimum of $100million and McGregor likely to receive $75million. If this huge pay-per-view event attracts the figures expected, then the fighters may get up to four times those amounts. You may want to try some matched betting to cover the PPV cost.
When and where does the Mayweather vs McGregor fight take place?
As with many of the biggest boxing and UFC fights of recent times, the bout will take place in Las Vegas, USA. The venue will be the T-Mobile Arena which opened in April 2016 and is located adjacent to the world-famous Las Vegas strip.
The date for the fight is Saturday 26th August, with the main event likely to get underway in the early hours of Sunday 27th, UK time.
Where to book Mayweather vs McGregor Fight?
For UK fight fans wanting to catch what is being billed as a ‘superfight’, Sky Box Office will be screening the event live. The cost of previous boxing fights on Sky Box Office has been around £19.99, however, don’t rule out it being somewhat more expensive this time around.
Viewers in the US were recently charged $99 to watch a Mayweather fight on pay-per-view, so it’s likely the cost in the UK will be above the average for this one. It will be of little surprise when you see the amount of money due to each fighter for taking part in the event.
To book the fight, you will need to call Sky Box Office on 0843 133 7129. If you are already a Sky TV customer, you will need your viewing card number or account details ready. Alternatively, non-Sky customers can still order the fight to watch live online via streaming.
The world will be watching. Will you?
