How to watch the Mayweather vs McGregor fight TV channel and live stream details
The most anticipated Mayweather vs McGregor fight of the century is fast approaching and the question of how to go about watching it is already being asked.
The fight is being shown in America exclusively live on Showtime Sports – but it will not come cheap.
American fights fans will have to pay £69.85 ($89.99) to watch in standard definition and £77.60 ($99.99) for HD.
Over 4 million people paid to watch Mayweather secure an uneventful points victory over Manny Pacquiao in 2014 but appetite for next month’s fight could see that figure dwarfed.
The rights to broadcast the fight in the United Kingdom have not been agreed yet.
Mayweather vs McGregor fight on Sky Sports Box Office, BT Sports and ITV Sport Box Office will all be bidding for the chance to air the fight on their respective channel.
Floyd Mayweather’s bout with Manny Pacquiao in 2014 was made available for £24.95 on Sky Sports Box office and it’s expected that the price for this year’s fight will surpass that figure.
Stephen Espinoza, chief executive of Showtime, said talks were ongoing with a number of UK broadcasters.
