FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR’S fight with Conor McGregor will be shown in theatres across the United States.

According to Fathom Events and Mayweather Promotions, what people see at the theatres will be identical to the pay-per-view broadcast on 26 August.

“The buzz that my fight against Conor McGregor is getting has been great already, so what better way to watch this larger than life event than on the big screen?” Mayweather said in a statement.

“We brought boxing back to movie theatres eight years ago and it was a huge success.

“But this event is on a different level and I’m so glad we are giving fans another way to see all the action. Grab your popcorn because this is a fight no one will want to miss.”
