Naturally, demand for the fight is completely unprecedented. The bout is expected to smash pay-per-view, betting and sponsorship records, and is tipped to become the most lucrative event in the history of combat sports.

Everything you need to know about Mayweather v McGregor

Unfortunately, nabbing a ticket for this once-in-a-lifetime spectacle is adifficult process.It’s going to be costly — especially for British fight fans who need to factor in travel expenses — and tough to track down a ticket.

It doesn’t help that there has been a lot of confusion over where to buy tickets and how much they’re going to cost. But we’re here to help!

How much are the tickets going to cost?

They don’t come cheap. But then you knew that anyway, right?Prices start at ‘just’ £390, but it has already been revealed that seats in this price bracket will have a limited availability.Other tickets will be sold for £1,200, £2,000, £2,800, £4,000 and £5,900.

Ticketmaster will be selling the tickets, so make sure you’re logged into their website in good time on Monday morning.It’s also a good idea to register for Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan scheme.

In the words of Ticketmaster: “One thing both fighters can agree on: they’re committed to getting tickets in the hands of fans. Not scalpers or bots. Mayweather and McGregor are collaborating with Ticketmaster to use the #VerifiedFan platform to power their ticket release to KO bots and scalpers so more fans get access to tickets.”

What about buying one from a ticket resale marketplace?

Be careful. Websites such as StubHub and Viagogo have been selling tickets for the fight ahead of the official ticket sale, with many fans snapping them up for ridiculous prices.

And UFC president Dana White has warned that these tickets are not genuine.
And what happens if I miss out?

You’ll probably have to stump up the cash to watch on PPV — or try to convince a mate to invite you around for the evening.

Not keen on that idea? We’ll be live blogging the fight, if that helps. Following the action round by round will be just as good as being there, we guarantee it

Watch Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor : McGregor opens training camp at UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.

Malignaggi, who retired earlier this year after a career which saw him fight some of the best boxer Mayweather vs. McGregor of the past decade including Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan, Adriend Broner, Zab Judah, Shawn Porter and Danny Garcia, was brought in by Team McGregor to give him some work ahead of next month’s Floyd Mayweather fight.

Malignaggi, who is now pursuing a broadcast career and helped host Showtime’s coverage of the recent Mayweather-McGregor world preWatch Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregorss tour, gave qualified praise to the Irishman.

“Eight rounds, good work. I can’t disclose too much but McGregor is no dummy …. there’s a method to his madness,” Malignaggi told NYFIGHTS.com.

“He has an idea of what he wants to do and how he wants to do it, he’s not clueless,” the boxer turned colour man said. “He’s not your conventional boxer by any means but he’s capable and his power is good. Whether that can be effective is up to him, but he’s no dummy!”

McGregor posted several photographs of the session to his Instagram page, including one with his hands held behind his back in the same way he did in the UFC against Eddie Alvarez.

It would seem a risky strategy against a fighter like Mayweather, who showed no mercy to Victor Ortiz when he failed to protect himself in their fight in 2011.

Malignaggi told NYFIGHTS.com he was unaware of what followed when McGregor dropped into the daring stance. “I don’t remember,” Paulie said, “but we did our share of touching in eight rounds!”

The official fight poster for Mayweather-McGregor, which will take place on Sunday, August 27 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, was unveiled by Showtime on Saturday morning.

Alvarez, who McGregor completely outclassed at UFC 205 last year, told an ESPN podcast the Irish star has the ability to finish Mayweather.

“Conor has about three or four rounds to get this done,” Alvarez said. “Within those four rounds, if you don’t think Conor can knock this guy out, you’re an idiot or you just don’t know fighting because it can very well happen.

“If he doesn’t get it done by then, then it could look very one-sided. The technical boxing of Floyd Mayweather is enough to make it look really one-sided for him. But Conor, there is a very real chance that he can put him away.”
