The upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is already one of the most talked-about bouts of the modern era and on course to be one of this generation’s most-watched sporting events. However, for those seeking a more cinematic experience and at a lower cost, Fathom Events and Mayweather Promotions have something special planned. As revealed by ESPN, the aforementioned pair of promotional outfits have linked up to broadcast the August 26 match at select movie theaters across the United States. Having previously conducted similar undertakings for past Mayweather bouts, Fathom Events and Mayweather Promotions are no strangers to events such as this to one; come August 26, cinemas from coast to coast will be packed with denizens — all of whom will pay around $40 USD a ticket — eager to cheer on their combatant of choice
“The buzz that my fight against Conor McGregor is getting has been great already, so what better way to watch this larger than life event than on the big screen?” Mayweather explains. “We brought boxing back to movie theaters eight years ago and it was a huge success … this event is on a different level and I’m so glad we are giving fans another way to see all the action. Grab your popcorn because this is a fight no one will want to miss.”
For those interested in catching a live showing of this year’s most anticipated boxing match, head on over to Fathom Events’ official website for more information. This Friday, don’t forget to catch Showtime’s inaugural edition of the network’s four-part series, ALL ACCESS: Mayweather vs McGregor.
