Believe me at this point Mayweather would sell out anywhere he went. And you are assuming Froch wins. It is a 50/50 fight.

Because HBO/Showtime money typically dwarfs the gate.

Even if you assume 18,000 tickets at average of $100 it's only 1.8 million. Though I don't know how it breaks down I am sure the venue gets a good % of that or a healthy site fee that cuts into it.

I am not not sure what HBO/Sho would pay for the rights to the fight but it would be well over a million and maybe as much as two.

HBO/Sho however, will not offer that kind of money if the fight is happening in Europe and not in primetime in the USA. And it might not draw 18,000 in Vegas but it would draw a decent gate and probably at higher average ticket prices.

Not only that but I don't think Froch has that much issue with traveling to the USA. He's never gotten real respect from UK fans and they're only now jumping on his bandwagon after Haye and Khan turned out to be jokes.

Either way it would be interesting to see again.
Well considering that the purse for Kessler and Froch for this fight is $2 million, I think they can offer more money than in the US.

Ward got $1.2 million for his fight with Dawson btw.

Default Froch is England's only sports hero

Froch is England's greatest warrior of all time. short list but still number one. With no true pro sports england has nothing to cheer for but for Froch.

Isn't this fight on PPV in the UK and on a subscriber network in the US?

This pretty much answers the question.

The average ticket price is north of $250.

The majority of seats were priced between £80-200.

The only cheap seats (£40-60), were in the last blocks of the top tier. Everything ringside and floor was £200-500, and the entire first tier was £100-200.

The gate is at least £2m+ (based on avg ticket price of c.£125 which is $3.5m+ gate.

PPV will clearly top that up. They needed the O2 arena and PPV to make the fight viable from a financial perspective.

Also - massive ticket booking fees also probably help the venue payment (I paid over £60 in fees), when booking 3 tix for £600. The tickets were sold through the O2 arena.

Whenever I see American ticket prices they seem to be cheaper than UK prices. UK is very expensive for boxing for some reason, so I dispute your Vegas being £££ for tickets point.
