Floyd Mayweather - Manny Pacquiao Fight Will Reportedly Cost You $99 on PPV

Stephen Douglas

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally meeting in the boxing ring on May 2nd. Fans have been waiting for this fight for years and when it finally arrives in a month, they’ll be asked to pay a record price according to the Wall Street Journal. Let’s hope this is a prank that someone is trying to sneak in before the calendar strikes April 2nd. Via WSJ:

"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."

Ninety-nine dollars! EIGHTY-NINE for standard def! That is something else. What would they be charging if Pacquiao hadn’t dropped two fights in 2012? And at what point will boxing fans say no? Those are probably questions that will be answered when they have the rematch.
