Earlier this week, the Nevada State Athletic Commission confirmed that Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor failed to break the all-time record for the largest gate, falling short to a record Mayweather previously set with Manny Pacquiao.
According to the report, the gate for the August 26th fight was $55,414,865.79, falling short of the $72,198,500 in ticket sales generated by Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. Although falling short, Mayweather vs. McGregor now places with the second highest gate in Nevada history, with 13,094 tickets sold and 137 complimentary tickets distributed. It should also be noted due to the extremely high cost of tickets, the event did not sell out.
As for the pay-per-view numbers, those should be released in the near future.
According to several reports, the event is tracking to do in the mid-to-high four million buys, which is extremely close to the all time 4.6 million mark set by Mayweather-Pacquiao.
