Mayweather Vs. McGregor Boxing Match Generated More Than £450M
Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor's "much-hyped Las Vegas boxing match" generated more than £450M ($599.5M), according to the BBC. Former five-weight world champion Mayweather "stopped Irish UFC fighter McGregor in the 10th round." It resulted in 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in North America, second only to Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao's 4.6 million in '15. Showtime added that global revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorship and int'l distribution, exceeded $600M (BBC, 12/15).
