Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Is Going To Cost You $99 On PPV Brandon Caldwell April 2, 2015 Boxing, News, Sports If you plan on watching Mayweather vs. Pacquaio on May 2nd, expect a ton of people to chip in on the PPV. The already record-breaking fight just broke another one, the highest price for a pay-per-view event in history. Fans will have to fork over $99 for HD or $89 for standard definition, easily making this the most expensive fight in history. The Wall Street Journal reports, “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. Initially, pay TV distributors were asked to give up as much as 70% of the revenue instead of the usual 50% to 55%. That offer was quickly rejected.” That’s one thing. Imagine if you get 3 million buys for this PPV. That would be $300 million in PPV revenue alone, doubling the amount of the highest grossing PPV fight of all-time, Mayweather’s 2013 fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez which grossed $152 million.
