Conor McGregor’s super fight with Floyd Mayweather was one of the most hyped events in modern sports history, and all signs indicate it actually exceeded expectations at the box office.

Tallied all up, the purse could hit $700 million, according to the Telegraph, and while the official split is confidential, many believe it to be 70-30 in Mayweather’s favor.

The most concrete proof of the fight’s huge purse came from Mayweather himself, who revealed at his post-fight press conference that they had broken the live gate record for a boxing match.

“We did break the record tonight for the biggest gate. Me and [Manny] Pacquiao done $72 million, I think we’d done something over $80 million for the live gate,” Mayweather said. This came despite the fact the 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena was not sold out.

The 50-0 champion then claimed that they’d also broken the record for pay-per-view buys. Official numbers, though, won’t be released for at least a week.

Mayweather and Pacquiao currently hold the record for the biggest fight in history. Their 2015 snooze-fest, which was years in the making, drew 4.6 million PPV buys in the United States, according to ESPN, with the standard-definition broadcast costing $89.99 while the high-definition version was $10 more. The total revenue for the fight ended up being over $410 million in domestic TV money alone.

Vegas bookmakers expect Mayweather-McGregor to smash that number. The Bovada sportsbook in Vegas had the Mayweather-McGregor over/under bet at 4.99 million PPV buys, according to Oddshark.com. In comparison, the over/under bet for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was 3.8 million PPV buys, according to Sports Illustrated.

Online streaming is another huge source of revenue where the fight thrived. UFC president Dana White pushed the streaming option hard before the fight and bragged it would be available to more than 1 billion people in over 200 countries.

“If you are in Manhattan or you are on a desert island somewhere, if you have Wi-Fi, you can buy this fight,” White said during fight week.

In the end, UFC Fight Pass, the promotion’s online streaming service, was so popular on fight night that its servers in California and Florida crashed.

Because of the downed servers, there were reports the fight would be delayed, but in the end, it started on time.

While legal streaming was clearly very popular, illegal pirates also had a field day with Mayweather-McGregor. The match was illegally rebroadcast online by 239 different sources on platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Periscope. In total, the illegal streams reached an estimated 2.93 million viewers worldwide, according to Variety. If all those eyeballs were forced to buy the fight legally, another $200 million could have been added to the purse.

Mayweather, however, figured out all sorts of other ways to generate revenue that the pirates couldn’t touch. For example, he made $25 million in sponsorships alone, and hats emblazoned with his 50-0 record hit stores shelves minutes after his victory over McGregor.

Truly Floyd is The Best Ever!

Potential 3 Million Pirated Streams Not Included In The Mayweather Vs. McGregor Numbers


While the final pay-per-view numbers aren't out yet, one thing that hasn't been included in the results of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor megafight on Saturday night in Las Vegas is the number of illegal pirated streams.

While many viewers opted to pay $20 to watch the megafight in a theater or $100 for the traditional pay-per-view, many others watched a pirated version, most on apps.

According to Irdeto, a digital platform security company, 239 illegal streams of the fight were watched by approximately 2,930,598 people: 165 were apparently made available through social media channels such as Facebook, YouTube, Periscope and Twitch, and 67 were available through illegal streaming sites. Kodi, a popular option for pirates, had six available as an add-on through the illicit streaming platform.

More interesting, Irdeto found in a single day during the week of the event that 42 ads were placed on Alibaba, eBay and Amazon promoting the illegal streams.

"Live sports are a cornerstone of global piracy, with thousands of sites providing illegal content attracting millions of viewers,” Rory O’Connor, senior VP of cybersecurity services at Irdeto, said in a statement. “When combating live sports piracy, speed in disrupting piracy is essential. ... By identifying and stopping pirate streams in real time through specialized knowledge and technology, content owners and operators are able to protect revenue and deliver a greater user experience.”


Many had expected the pay-per-view buys to exceed those for Mayweather's fight against Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015, which generated 4.6 million pay-per-view buys and revenue of more than $400 million. The illegal streaming, which is becoming more prevalent and hard to prevent, is eating into the overall revenue of the promoters, broadcast partners and cable operators.

In 2015, promoters Top Rank and Mayweather Promotions made a preemptive strike to shut down the possibility of illegal streams before they even took place. It was the first time that a lawsuit had been filed over piracy that hadn't yet taken place.

At that time, Periscope took down 30 streams of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. This time around, it didn't seem to deter "digital Robin Hoods" who paid for the pay-per-view and then streamed it from their account.

Time will tell how much the illegal streams may have cost the promoters, broadcast network and cable operators of Saturday's fight, but it could be equal to the amount from the expected legal pay-per-view buys and easily in excess of $100 million.

I think no more matchup in boxing that could ever beat this super mega-blockbuster fight for century.

TBE Floyd is really a great businessman, a crowd drawer and has a higher Boxing IQ than Packyman.

Floyd Mayweather Confirms Fight with Conor McGregor Broke All-Time Records

Image


Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor was dubbed ‘The Money Fight' and that's exactly what the match-up produced.

The bout played out much differently than many experts expected with McGregor giving a great account of himself for the majority of the fight until Mayweather finally took over in the ninth and tenth rounds before earning a TKO stoppage.

While the fight ultimately wasn't a sellout with 14,623 in attendance, Mayweather said at the end of the night that the live gate broke the all-time record, which was held by his match-up against Manny Pacquiao from 2015.

“We did break the record tonight for the biggest gate,” Mayweather confirmed at the post fight press conference. “Me and Pacquiao done $72 million. I think we done somewhere over $80 million in the live gate (with McGregor).”

As far as the pay-per-view numbers go, Mayweather was also confident that his fight with McGregor on Saturday night broke that all time record as well.

It was also Mayweather's fight against Pacquiao that held that record with over 4.6 million buys, but the now 50-0 legend says his match-up against McGregor surpassed that total as well.

“Tonight, we broke the Pacquiao pay-per-view number,” Mayweather said. “All I'm doing is breaking my own records.”

There was some worry earlier in the night after numerous viewers complained about the pay-per-view crashing online with several websites going down as the pay-per-view got underway.

Ultimately, Showtime opted to delay the main event to a later start time to allow pay-per-view providers to get up and running again before Mayweather and McGregor made their walk to the ring.

“We also on pay-per-view, it took it so long to come out for the fight. I know all the fans were anticipating like ‘why you guys taking so long?' The reason we took so long is because the pay-per-view servers in California and in Florida crashed,” Mayweather explained. “So we wanted to make sure we got everything back in place, in the right place so that everybody could see pay-per-view and see the show.”

As it turns out, that was the right thing to do if Mayweather vs. McGregor ultimately sold enough pay-per-views to break the all time record.

That he mastered the art of promotion by sowing intrigues against opponents.

Hey guys, why you can't just accept the fact and extend your congratulations to "The Best Ever" fighter on the planet today? He's in boxing for a long time and always fighting at the highest level, the great boxer that made your idol Packyman looked like a casual amateur. It's understood how the boxing people scrutinized Pak for a sub par performance. Ha ha
