Would you take a beating from Floyd Mayweather to earn $30 million?
That’s what MMA fighter Connor McGregor reportedly will earn to step into the boxing ring against Mayweather this evening.
McGregor and Mayweather face off Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in a pay-per-view event expected to be the most lucrative prize fight of all time.
Mayweather reportedly will earn $100 million for the fight. Both fighters could earn more.
Their final purses depend on a number of factors, including total pay-per-view buys and live gate revenue.
Up to 50 million Americans are expected to watch the fight this evening. The 40-year-old Mayweather, who sports an undefeated 49-0 record, is considered the heavy favourite.
Locally, the fight will be available for viewing at the Sage Pub. There’s no cover charge.
