Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao’s May 2 megafight is sure to break every single monetary record possible. To that end, the PPV buy is right on track. If you’d like to enjoy the fight from the comfort of your own living room, be prepared to pay $99 to watch it in HD, according to the Wall Street Journal. Some people don’t even pay that much a month for their cable package.
If that seems like a lot, that’s because it is. This crushes the previous record for a PPV fight. What would the number have been if Pacquiao hadn’t lost two fights the last few year.
What will be interesting is the number of people that actually pay this amount of money for it.
Under the terms being discussed, the fight will be sold for $99 for a high-definition feed and $89 for standard definition, both of which are record prices. The previous high was $74.95 for high-definition and $64.95 for standard.
