Just heard on CNBC, minimum ticket prices have dropped...
You can watch it on PPV for a whopping $100.
I'd like to see the fight but with those kind of prices I'll just read about it in the sports section Sunday.
Total insanity. They split 60-40: 150 millions to money boy Mayweather and 100 millions to Pacman.
The prices of tickets are ridiculous. And they say the economy is in bad shape.
All that money could help a lot of people live better.
I mean I do enjoy boxing but this is nonsense. Talk about good marketing.
Tecate is running a rebate of something like $15 per case of beer you buy taken off the PPV price. Get some friends together who can stand to drink that swill and you can watch the fight for free.
Mayweather guarantee (so far including sponsors), $150 million. yep
I think with this kind of money it becomes a steamroller ... people want to see what this kind of money gets you ... not Ali/Fraser ...
Curious to see what a Ronda Rousey/Cris Cyborg match would rake in.
20% of what Ronda and Stephanie McMahon will do, eventually.
It IS in bad shape, but with the American psyche there's no demand destruction. People buy what they can't afford all the time. People say things are too expensive, but they vote with their debt.
A tiny fraction of any of Mayweather's PPV fights.
I think its going to be another boring Mayweather decision.....
I'd have some friends over if it was fifty bucks.... not paying one hundred bucks just out of principal....
I'll catch the highlights somewhere.
I won't be watching, don't feel right giving money to line the pockets of a guy that beats women.
I'd say all those trainer and promoters will be helped out.
altho i think it's a stupid amount of money involved, i say good on them.
who wouldn't want a $100mil payday?
hell, i'd fight either for $10mil!
They each get their own ring announcer. Michael Buffer for Manny, and Jimmy Lennon Jr. for Mayweather.
Pacman will do his usual thing, spend most of his money on improving life for poor people in the Phillippines. He is a congressman and a national hero.
Mayweather will spend his on hookers, blow, and legal fees.
Hookers and blow? How do you know?
Don't forget about cars!
Mayweather is making more in one night than these companies make in a year.
How much does the IRS collect on $150 mil?
It's free in Mexico to watch on TV .
And will most certainly be up for free streaming. No need to blow $100 on ppv.
