Since the Sept. 14 junior middleweight title fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez at MGM Grand in Las Vegas is going to be such a huge event, it’s not surprising to hear that the Showtime pay-per-view feed is going to cost fans $64.95.
Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, revealed that to reporters from BoxingScene.com and RingTV.com after Tuesday’s news conference in Los Angeles. It will be $74.95 for high definition.
Mayweather, 36, is 44-0 with 26 knockouts. Alvarez, of Mexico City, is just 22. He is 42-0-1 with 30 knockouts.
The fight sold out in one day, but there are tickets left for closed-circuit showings at various Las Vegas hotels. They are going for $100 a pop.
