Hopefully, your shoes have sufficient heels on them, for if you want to buy a ringside seat for the Conor McGregor – Floyd Mayweather fight in late August at Las Vegas, you had better be prepared to shell out something in the vicinity of $100,000.
Tickets are on sale now, do not delay. The sellers may not be able to tell you precisely where to go to claim your seat, but that is not really relevant, is it. For an extra 10 or 20 large, you could have the privledge of sitting alongside Kayne West, or a member of his entourage at least, provided that Mike Tyson does not attempt to poach your seat.
The reason for the uncertainty is that rapper Ice Cube has the T-Mobile Arena booked for the same date. You would think it was for a hippity-hop show of some sort, but anyone who really knows rappers knows that they all want to be basketball players, the opposite of basketball players, who all want to be rappers, so the Cube is planning on using the venue for a basketball tournament.
McGregor offered to beat any and all rappers at some mano a mano basketball for the right to use the stadium on August 26, but he may simply be engaging in his customary braggadocio.
Unlike McGregor, Mayweather has been close-lipped about the situation, saying only, “McGregor is a tough competitor. People all around the world demanded this fight so I had to give them what they wanted to see,” in comments to BSOTV. “They asked for this fight. I was in retirement, but they wanted me back and I’m back.”
Mayweather would not reveal any financial details about the fight, but that might simply be due to his math abilities not being equal to comprehending the vast sum he looks to reel in. He may be more focused on the opportunity to win an even 50 professional fights.
