The pair will meet at the MGM Grand Arena on May 2 in what looks set to be the highest grossing single sports event in history, and that's certainly reflected in the prices.

The cheapest tickets, for the seats furthest from the ring, are $4,960. While ringside seats will set you back $25,025, which is almost twenty-two thousand euro.

It was revealed earlier that a computer glitch was responsible for reports that the MGM Grand hotel was sold out within 15 minutes of the fight's announcement. There are still rooms currently available, but they'll set you back $615.

Ever wonder why Mayweather's nickname is 'Money'? Wonder no more.
