Floyd Mayweather makes plea to those people ‘blowing up’ his phone ahead of his August 26th showdown with Irishman Conor McGregor.

The fight has not sold out as of yet it is understood – with just over one week to go until Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor get into a boxing ring with one another.

Billed as the biggest fight ever on pay per view, perhaps ticket sales would be expected to have gone a bit better then they have.

Then again however, as Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe pointed out, this isn’t exactly a normal fight with tickets priced much higher and is still on track in his opinion to go past the $72 million dollar gate record previously set by Mayweather against Pacquiao in 2015.

The tickets for Mayweather vs McGregor are clearly aimed at this higher end of the market so it could very well be the case that many who attend on the night will be last minute merchants.

Floyd Mayweather has released the below statement that could be perceived as a way to push ticket sales.

Anyone in the events business will tell you if you’re selling tickets you always say that people are calling all the time and that they are selling like hot cakes.

It’s the oldest trick in the book:

Whether the fight tickets at the T-Mobile sell out or not remains to be seen.

No matter how much money the fight makes – surely if the place isn’t full for such a big event the organisers won’t be pleased.
