The Money Fight does not sell out, draws 14,623

August 27, 2017

The T-Mobile Arena did not sell out for The Money Fight as it was reported that 14,623 were in attendance for Mayweather-McGregor.  However, it may come close to beating the gate of $72 million set by Mayweather-Pacquiao.

The capacity at the venue is 20,000.  With astronomical ticket prices, most stayed away from attending and stuck to watching it on PPV.

According to Floyd Mayweather after the fight, the gate was $80 million although that has not been confirmed.

Payout Perspective:

The huge ticket prices were a deterrent for many to attend in person.  Despite pricing many out of attending, one has to think that it comes close to a $72 million gate.  It’s amazing that there is a market despite the negatives about the fight and the dud that was Mayweather-Pacquiao.

    “and the dud that was Mayweather-Pacquiao”

    What does that mean exactly?

    ‘What does that mean exactly?”

    It means that fight was overhyped and sucked.

    that fight did suck, this one did not. Probably the best Mayweather fight since Cotto I would say….albeit at a much lower skill level from both fighters. But, as i always say, you dont have to have the absolute best to make the best fights.

    Wil – I agree 100%. I’m not sure if it’s because McGregor pressured effectively, or because Floyd couldn’t rely on his defensive reflexes and knew he would have to press to win – but this was a good fight. I predicted a boring blowout for Floyd, but in that sense I was wrong. It was an exciting blowout for Floyd. why couldn’t he have fought this way in other fights?

    May-Pac not exciting fight
