'The Biggest Fight In Combat Sports History' Might Not Even Sell Out

'The Biggest Fight In Combat Sports History' Might Not Even Sell Out

It's being billed as "The Biggest Fight In Combat Sports History", but Floyd Mayweather's fight with Conor McGregor is struggling to sell the last of the available tickets.

There are tickets available for almost all of the tiered sections on the Ticketmaster website. Priced from $2,500 t0 $10,000 (not including the additional fees) many fans have been priced out of attending the event in person.

Many McGregor fans have travelled to Las Vegas for the event, but most will be watching the fight in Casinos around the strip.

Such has been the cost of ticket prices for the event, it is still expected to break many records for the gate, despite being nowhere near full capacity.

Ticket resale websites are now openly selling tickets at a heavy loss, in a bid to recoup their money as quick as possible.

On some resale websites, some tickets are being sold (albeit at astronomical prices) at almost half of the cost price. Those prices will plummet further in the hours before the fight begins.

On Friday afternoon, there were no tickets available for under $1,000. Even the cheapest available tickets are still a fraction of their cost price.

It may be titled as one of the biggest fights of all time, but it will be on front of a very sparse crowd.
