Shocker: Fans scammed of money as websites sell non-existent Mayweather v McGregor tickets
Conor McGregor’s handler Dana White has urged fans wanting tickets to the August 26 Floyd Mayweather fight to wait for something official to be released.
As WBN reported recently, tickets for Floyd Mayweather’s return to the ring are in high demand already, according to some well-known ‘ticket selling websites’.
Projections with one website say prices will range from $2,000 to $80,000, with ringside seats set to go for a lot more.
Most fees for a front row seat are yet to be confirmed, although one big-name site are showing less than 2% of their ‘allocation’ remain despite nothing coming from the promotional side.
One eager fan even forked out thousands of Dollars for a pair of tickets for the fight, only for White to confirm they have been scammed out of their cash as TICKETS ARE NOT ON SALE yet.

“Tickets are NOT on sale yet. Please do not get ripped off. This company is NOT refunding this fans money. We will announce when tickets go on sale soon,” said White.
Mayweather makes a comeback almost two years after defeating Andre Berto in September 2015 on the back of equalling Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 retirement record.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission have given their blessing to the contest being record as a 50th win for Mayweather, although McGregor will be banking on sealing the biggest upset the sport has ever witnessed.
McGregor is the only two-weight UFC champion in the history of MMA but is yet to participate in the boxing ring and is a rank outsider to even make a slight dent in Mayweather’s undefeated run.
More information regarding the ticket allocation is due to be released by Mayweather Promotions shortly as fans attempt to witness history at the arena itself or prepare to pay anywhere between an estimated $99.95 for the Showtime PPV.
