Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have opened up a new source of revenue for their big fight this August.
The Mayweather vs. McGregor will be presented live in U.S. Cinemas on the big day, which is August 26.
Floyd’s Mayweather Promotions has linked with Fathom Events to bring one of the most anticipated events in sports history to the silver screen.
The 12-round fight marks the first time champions from both boxing and MMA will meet in a sanctioned boxing match and be shown in movie theaters around the country.
Now, if you can’t make it to the T-Mobile Arena, you can peep the fight in the theater, including the undercard bouts and the main event.
“The buzz that my fight against Conor McGregor is getting has been great already, so what better way to watch this larger than life event than on the big screen?” Floyd Mayweather
“We brought boxing back to movie theaters eight years ago and it was a huge success, but this event is on a different level and I’m so glad we are giving fans another way to see all the action,” Floyd said. “Grab your popcorn because this is a fight no one will want to miss.”
“Mayweather Promotions is very proud of its longstanding partnership with Fathom Events and we’re glad to be able to once again bring a Floyd Mayweather fight to movie theaters nationwide,” said Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. “If you can’t make it to T-Mobile Arena, but want to feel like you’re sitting singside, watching this mega-event on the big screen will be an experience fans won’t want to miss.”
