With the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Conor McGregor now, thankfully, done and dusted, the money-men have released some figures appertaining to the bout.

When the fight, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, was announced, it was touted as being set to break all records with regards to ticket sales.

The record, ahead of the fight between Mayweather and McGregor, had been set in 2015 when ticket sales for the bout between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao generated £55.4 million.

However, the ticket sales for the T-Mobile promotion fell short of that figure.

The moneymen have declared that ticket revenue, for the fight, was £42.5 million, making it the second highest in history.

The deficit, as some are pointing out, could be down to the fact there were 7,000 empty seats at the T-Mobile Arena on the night of the fight.

However, when it comes to the pay-per-view buys, that figure has yet to be finalised, but the expectations are that it will exceed the 4,600,000 the fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao generated.
