With a $70 high-def price tag on the pay-per-view card headlined by the Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz fight, one writer in Sacramento says the cost is simply too high.
“Would you pay your cable or satellite provider $69.95 to watch Floyd Mayweather Jr. get knocked out? So would I,” writes Victor Contreras of the Sacramento Bee. “But since Victor Ortiz, Mayweather’s young and charismatic opponent Saturday night in Las Vegas, doesn’t have a chance against the boxer we all love to hate, I’m keeping my $70 in the sock drawer.”
Contreras says he’s not alone, pointing to slow pay-per-view sales. He also reveals that there are plenty of tickets available online for seat at the MGM Grand Arena, the site of the Mayweather fight.
