Mayweather-Berto PPV Prices, All Access Debut on 8/28

By Edward Chaykovsky

Fans will get a price break on Floyd Mayweather's upcoming Showtime Pay-Per-View - but it's only a price break from Floyd's May 2nd mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao - which generated 4.4 million pay-per-view purchases.

For the fight with Pacquiao, fans were forced to shell out $89.95 for standard and $99.95 for high definition. The upcoming fight against Andre Berto, taking place on September 12th from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, will have a pre-Pacquiao price tag of $64.95 for standard and $74.95 for high definition.

The fight will be a hard sell with Berto universally viewed as a massive underdog. Some oddsmakers have him listed as high as a 80-1 underdog.

Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs), 38-years-old, is pitching his outing with Berto (30-3, 23 KOs) as the final fight of his career. Most expect him to return next year. The upcoming fight will be his last of a six fight multi-year exclusive contract with Showtime/CBS.

With only a few short weeks before the fight takes place, Showtime is already prepared to roll out their All Access reality series, which the network says will debut on Friday, August 28th.

[QUOTE=poerqe;15940383]I think you people are sleeping on Berto. This is a super tough fight for mayweather. It's his last fight and he is basically passing the torch to the only fighter who can surpass his accomplishments. The only fighter who…

I hope Ms.Jackson makes an appearance with Berto, and I hope they dedicate a small segment to the cruelty of phone terrorism.
