Sky Sports announce Floyd Mayweather fight with Logan Paul will cost hefty £16.95 as fans rage 'it's a sham of a fight'
FLOYD MAYWEATHER'S exhibition fight against Logan Paul will cost viewers in the UK £16.95 to watch.
And that price to see the undefeated boxing legend take on a YouTuber has been met with ridicule by many on social media.
Mayweather has shared intense training videos recently as he prepares to take on a man several weight divisions above him.
His regular sparring partner Denis Douglin has even expressed his shock at Mayweather training as if he is having a 'proper fight'
But the general consensus is that the Sky Sports Box Office bout will be a walk in the park for the man known as 'The Money'.
And paying £16.95 for the privilege of watching of watching it in the early hours of Monday, June 7 for people in the UK doesn't seem that appealing.
Stefan Broome tweeted that: 'They should pay us £16.95 to watch it."
Matt Irwin added that it was '£17 saved', while Paul Smith posted that he 'wouldn't watch it if it was free to air'.
Jonathan Best wrote that it was 'an embarrassing event'.
Mark Passfield quipped that the event 'will cost me £0' – one person who clearly won't be parting with any money.
