Sky Sports Box Office to show Mayweather McGregor
August 1, 2017
Sky Sports Box Office is to screen the hugely-anticipated fight between undefeated former world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather and current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
The event sees the two worlds of professional boxing and UFC colliding at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26th, and will be available to Sky customers on Sky Sports Box Office for £19.95 in the UK and €24.95 for Republic of Ireland.
“This is surely one of the most anticipated and intriguing contests we’ve ever seen on Sky Sports Box Office,” suggested Sky Sports Head of Boxing Adam Smith. “Can the charismatic Conor McGregor, so formidable in the octagon, make the switch to the ring and create history? What will it mean for Mayweather’s legacy – one of the greatest fighters of all time but coming out of retirement and facing a man at the very top of his game? It’s set to be a huge night in Las Vegas – one you won’t want to miss.”
Ahead of the fight, Sky Sports viewers will be able to enjoy a range of support programming across both TV channels and digital platforms, in addition to all the pre-fight build up from behind the scenes.
