The average price for Mayweather-McGregor might be close to the same, as intermediary tickets are priced at $1,500, $2,500, $3,500, $5,000 and $7,500.

McGregor also encouraged his fans in the 16,000 strong crowd to chant "f*** the Mayweathers".
"You are 40 years of age", McGregor said. "Dance for me!" McGregor said. You line them up and I knock them down like bowling pins.
