Don’t worry. You can still watch the money fight at home.
According to a statement obtained by P Live from SuperSport, its premium users will watch the richest contest at no extra cost on Sunday.
“Having taken trash-talking to record levels of excess, top fighters Floyd Mayweather jnr and Conor McGregor now must back up their wild boasts where it counts – in the ring.
“This weekend, the pair will do so amid a wave of hysteria and Las Vegas shtick, with DStv’s SuperSport broadcasting the action in the early hours of Sunday morning (from 1am CAT) on SuperSport 2.
“Unlike many other broadcasters around the world, such as the US, where viewers must pay $99 to watch the fight, SuperSport’s Premium customers will receive it at no additional cost,” the statement read.
Mayweather will be aiming for a record 50th successive win as a professional. McGregor, for all the hype, will be engaging in just his first pro contest. Yet this fight has more to do with marketing smoke and mirrors than boxing. Both will cash in like never before with their superstar status guaranteeing millions of eyeballs on televisions around the world.
