TBE refused to pay this much in 2023 saying, “Freeeeee imagine paying in 2023.”
I speak for the hood when I say we will be streaming 💯

This is why illegally streaming is so popular lol. Why pay for it when I can load up a couple website and still watch it real time in 4k

However, according to another user, the price just makes sense. ‘Not a surprise, it’s literally the biggest fight boxing has left. Gotta cash out.’
Damn… Didn't realize this was Mayweather/Pacquiao 2.
What on earth are they thinking?

Ryan DiDonato breaks down the whole pricing with a little bit of analytics.
Man I got to pay that cuz tank from Baltimore if he wasnt I wouldnt be buying it at that price I'd just watch the highlights on YouTube after the fight lol👀😂💯

Wont they earn more if the Price was lower – like $20? This Price is kinda pushing people away

“What’s wrong with $50? 500k buys at $85 = $42.5mil. 1mil buys at $50 = $50mil. Canelo barely does 1mil buys so to say it’ll do 1mil isn’t impossible but it has to be priced right. It’ll be interesting to see but I don’t think it’s priced right to make the most money possible.”
This is why people watch free streams.

that undercard better be crazy, if not… then ill find another way to watch it. 75 bucks is steep… 85 is crazy – it aint even a title fight

According to CMP,” Easy to see why people stream these events for free. That price is ridiculous.”
Just split the price with family or friends coming over to watch the fight this fight has to a good # so we can get fights like Crawford Spence

Many users are willing to pay for UFC rather than boxing these days as JG expressed saying,” I have to thank that first Canelo v GGG fight. Saved me a lot of money not having to order any more boxing PPV’s since then. @ufc has the only PPV’s I’m willing to pay for now.”
Damn….that's more expensive than my platinum porn 4k subscription.

I have to pay it. Really looking forward to this fight. But this will be my only PPV for the year unless we get Spence vs Crawford!

Many like SJE are also predicting the future of PPV. “I wouldn’t be surprised if $100 PPVs became the norm for most ‘big’ fights by the end of 2024.”
Got some dough in America 😳
You wouldn’t get many buys in the UK at that price
— Paul Aldred (@Aldo1980123) March 28, 2023
For me it’s gone be $0.00 ion know what you mean by $84.99

Mortgage Man also thinks the price is high as he tweeted saying, “That price is going to definitely have people streaming the fight, it’s a great fight but that’s too expensive.”
Loooooooool that is a joke.
Who came up with that pricing!?
— Callum (@CJ_9_3) March 27, 2023
I can just watch the full fight for free on YouTube the next day 🤷🏾♂️

According to Lee Hemphill, “Glad the fight is actually getting made and the price probs has to be this high to get the fight on but come on man the boxing fans getting stung again there has to be a better price system for these big fights.”
