Will You Pay To Watch The Mayweather-Paul Exhibition? — Boxing News
May 14, 2021
The farcical or genuinely fascinating exhibition bout between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul (take your decide) will exit on pay-per-view, with Showtime PPV televising the occasion in America and Sky Sports activities simply asserting how they are going to have unique TV rights right here within the UK.
U.S combat followers should fork out the sum of $49.99, whereas the Sky Sports activities price ticket has not but been introduced (at a guess, I feel it will likely be round £15 or possibly £20.00).
Will YOU be paying to look at?
Mayweather and Paul have accomplished their greatest in hyping the eight-round exhibition that, in reality, won’t be something like a aggressive combat; Mayweather being a thousand miles away when it comes to ability, expertise, and skill, even at age 44 – Paul being 0-1 as a boxer.
However the exhibition has gained loads of consideration from followers, youthful followers particularly (the old-timers, these which are nonetheless right here to recall the glory days of boxing, again when the game was the largest on the planet, are aghast over the June 6 function).
The under-card within reason strong, the spotlight being the return combat between Jean Pascal and Badou Jack, however that $49.99 price ticket is an extremely excessive one. Is there any actual likelihood followers who do pay to view get their cash’s value?
The exhibition is dubbed “Bragging Rights,” however though Paul would have lots to brag about if he one way or the other managed to win – as in he might brag about having pulled off the largest upset in boxing historical past – what on earth would/will Mayweather need to brag about with a win?
His monster payday apart, Mayweather will accomplish nothing of observe on June 6.
Personally, I’m type of stunned and upset the parents at Sky Sports activities have took it upon themselves to purchase this combat and anticipate us UK boxing followers to do likewise.
I’ll take a cross. Above all, although, let’s hope no person will get badly harm or worse when this, the most recent in a seemingly limitless stream of curiosity/freakshow exhibition bouts comes alongside.
